Nine months after a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 25 game against the Miami Dolphins, Will Fuller V showed up healthy and ready to go for the Texans 2019 training camp.
“It’s great,” Deshaun Watson said. “He’s a threat. Every time you step on the field, he’s a guy that can make big-time plays. Stretch the field and it’s good to be able to have him active and back on the field with us.”
In their 11 games together, Watson and Fuller have connected for 11 career touchdowns. Through seven games in 2018, Fuller caught four touchdown passes, averaging 15.7 yards per catch on 32 receptions and 502 yards receiving. Fuller, who missed the final eight games to undergo ACL surgery, was diligent in his rehab, according to head coach Bill O’Brien.
“He’s had a really good offseason relative to the things he had to do to get himself back on the field,” O’Brien said. “He was here every day. Really put a lot of time into it. Just did an excellent job so it’s great, great to have him back out there.”
The Texans 2019 training camp began on Thursday, July 25 at the Houston Methodist Training Center. Five training camp practices will be open to the public: Thursday, Aug. 1; Saturday, Aug. 3; Saturday, Aug. 10; Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Thursday, August 15.
