WR Will Fuller, V on "good track" in return from injury

Will Fuller, V's return from a knee injury is going well.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans receiver, who's season ended October 25 in a win at NRG Stadium over the Dolphins, is making progress in his return to the playing field.

"I think he's doing really well," O'Brien said Tuesday during a media availability at the NFL Annual League Meeting. "He's on a good track."

Fuller went down in Week 8. In seven games last season, he finished with 32 catches for 502 yards and four touchdowns. O'Brien doesn't know exactly when Fuller will be back at full strength, but he said the fourth-year pro has been diligent in his rehab.

"He's been in there every day," O'Brien said. "He works very hard. With his work ethic and his mindset, I'm not going to put a timetable on it, but I feel like he's really moving in a good direction."

In 11 games played with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Fuller's caught 45 passes for 782 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's averaged 17.4 yards per catch.

The Texans begin offseason conditioning at NRG Stadium and the Houston Methodist Training Center on April 15.
