Second-year wide receiver Will Fuller V will miss time with an undisclosed injury but will return this season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
"Any time you lose a player for a little bit here of the caliber of Will, it's something the next guy's got to step up," O'Brien said Thursday. "That's the NFL, that's training camp. Injuries happen, next man up. Will will be back. It's not a season-ending injury. He'll be back in Houston rehabbing. He'll be back as soon as he can."
Fuller V left Wednesday's training camp practice with an injury. Drafted in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Fuller had made good progress throughout the offseason and camp.
"He was doing a good job," O'Brien said. "You could see him jump from first year to second year, all those guys. Braxton Miller has done well, made some plays today."
Fuller started 13 regular season games, including both preseason contests, in his rookie season. He finished third in the NFL among rookie wideouts with 635 receiving yards and sixth with 47 receptions.
