Fuller upgraded to full participant in practice

Will Fuller V is "trending in the right direction," according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

On Wednesday, Fuller was a full participant in practice for the first time since undergoing shoulder surgery in August. The Texans second-year wide receiver could be ready to go against Tennessee on Sunday for his first game with quarterback Deshaun Watson. Fuller's skillset would complement an offense that recorded 417 net yards in the 36-33 loss to New England.

"It gives us a guy on the outside who runs good routes, who's got good speed, can stretch the field," quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said. "It's another weapon and you always want your full complement of guys out there, so it certainly does a good job of distributing the coverage and they're going to have to be aware of it if he's out there."

In last year's Week 4 game against the Titans, Fuller scored a 67-yard touchdown on his first career punt return and also finished with a team-high seven catches for 81 yards and a receiving touchdown.

The (1-2) Texans host the (2-1) Titans on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 12 noon on CBS and SportsRadio 610.
