Breakfast: WR Fuller up for NFL Rookie of the Week


Texans wide receiver Will Fuller had himself a game on Sunday, and the NFL took notice.

On Tuesday, Fuller was one of five rookies nominated for the NFL's Pepsi Rookie of the Week award for his Week 4 performance against Tennessee.

Fuller had 148 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, including a game-changing 67-yard punt return for a score late in the third quarter in a 27-20 victory over the Titans.

The Notre Dame first-round pick needs your votes to win, so vote here or tweet 'Fuller #NFLROTW' on Twitter.

The other Rookie of the Week nominees include Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard, Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue, and a pair of Dallas Cowboys in QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott.

Through four games, Fuller's NFL career is off to a fast start, as he leads the Texans with 19 catches for 323 yards.

Fuller is the only player in franchise history to catch a touchdown and return a punt for a score in the same game.
