Will Fuller V could return to the Texans lineup as early as Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
"I think that'll be something that we'll see starting on Wednesday, but I'm hearing some good things," O'Brien said Monday.
Fuller underwent surgery after suffering a shoulder injury in training camp on Aug. 3. The second-year wide receiver was not placed on injured reserve following surgery. Last week, Fuller practiced with the team but was limited.
In 2016 Fuller was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week following his Week 4 performance against the Titans. Fuller became the first player in Texans history to record a receiving touchdown and a punt return touchdown in the same game. He was also just the fourth in NFL history to do so in the past 15 years.
The (1-2) Texans host the (2-1) Titans on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 12 noon on CBS and SportsRadio 610.
The Texans faced the Patriots in Week 3 at Gillette Stadium.
