Will Fuller V took a hard hit in the ribs during a pass breakup in Sunday's 33-17 loss in Los Angeles. After the game, Fuller said he was "feeling pretty good," but his status remains unknown.
The Texans hope that Fuller will be available for their Week 11 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
"Yeah, I mean, he took a pretty good shot," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "He's a tough guy. He's a Philly (Philadelphia) guy, very tough guy, especially for the way he's built. He's one of our better receivers when it comes to blocking. He does a lot of different things for us that people probably don't even notice. But he's slightly built, so I don't know. We'll have to see how that goes during the week."
The second-year wide receiver exited half-way through the second quarter with the ribs injury and did not return. Fuller finished with two catches for 15 yards. Through six games, Fuller has 17 catches, 326 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
The Texans will honor Andre Johnson during Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. The franchise's all-time leading wide receiver will become the first member of the Houston Texans Ring of Honor. Kickoff is set for noon on SportsRadio 610 and FOX.
