HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans will likely see two additional offensive weapons return to the line-up when they face the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football this week.
The Texans saw the return of rookie wideout Will Fuller and tight end Stephen Anderson to the practice field on Wednesday. Fuller missed his first game last Sunday against the Colts with a hamstring injury while Anderson was dealing with his own hamstring problems that kept him out of the last three games.
Fuller is the team’s second leading receiver with 20 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns. SportsRadio 610 asked Fuller his plans on being back Monday.
“I should be,” Fuller said. “I’m working on in the treatment room just doing what my coaches are telling me to do working hard in the treatment room, trying to get back.”
Fuller admitted that he has been cautious with the injury.
“I’ve never had a hamstring injury before so I was just playing it safe,” Fuller said. “I didn’t feel right.”
If Fuller and Anderson play on Monday night it would give the Texans their full compliment of pass catchers for the first time since week 1 of the season.
