The Houston Texans have lost wide receiver Will Fuller indefinitely with a broken collarbone suffered during the early portion of practice. Fuller went up for a pass down the sideline and while jumping up for the pass game down on his shoulder on the way down. A defender was in coverage on Fuller when the play was taking place and Fuller immediately knew that something was not right when he got up after the play.
Fuller was immediately taken off the field by trainers and the team doctor but it was clear that it was a serious injury.
When asked about the severity of Fuller's injury Bill O'Brien had no comment on the situation.
Texans' WR Will Fuller broke his collarbone today during practice, sources tell @sarahbarshop and me. Out indefinitely.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 2, 2017
Fuller appears to be lost for around 2-3 months and he will need surgery to repair the broken collarbone. This comes as a big blow to an offense that uses his skills to stretch the field. Earlier in the day, Fuller had a big play on a crossing pattern that saw him break for a touchdown. Fuller has had a strong camp and this comes as a big blow to an offense looking to find their way.
