Will Fuller, Kareem Jackson back for MNF

The Texans will have some key contributors available for Monday Night Football versus the Broncos.

Cornerback Kareem Jackson was a full participant at practice this week, after missing the past two games due to a hamstring injury. 

Receiver Will Fuller didn't play a snap against the Colts because of a hamstring injury of his own, but head coach Bill O'Brien said the rookie had a "good" week of practice and that he thinks Fuller will play at Denver.

Offensive linemen Derek Newton (ankle/knee) and Jeff Allen (concussion) didn't play last week, and neither did tight end Stephen Anderson (hamstring). All three were full participants on Friday at practice.

For Jackson, being back with his teammates after missing two games has been just what the doctor ordered.

"It feels good to be out there running around with the guys," Jackson said. "Definitely missed being out there and playing with the guys and stuff, especially how the last couple weeks have been. But the guys that have been out there have been doing some great stuff, but it's always great to be back out there."

He said he's "feeling great" physically and eager to play against the Broncos.

Jackson and the Texans will practice on Saturday inside NRG Stadium and leave for Denver on Sunday afternoon.
