Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is expected to miss several weeks with a significant hamstring pull suffered against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in Week 7, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fuller underwent medical tests on Monday, which confirmed that he'll need to miss more time. Since entering the league as the 21st overall pick of the 2016 draft, the fourth-year wideout has missed 17 games due to injury. He's yet to play a full season in his career.
Last year, Fuller missed the Texans' season opener with a hamstring injury and then played in seven games before an ACL tear ended his campaign.
This season, the 25-year-old has 34 catches, 450 receiving yards, and three touchdowns in seven games. He's the only Texan other than fellow receiver DeAndre Hopkins to record multiple receiving touchdowns this year.
Fuller's absence should open the door for other wideouts on Houston's roster. Kenny Stills, who returned in Week 7 after two weeks on the sidelines, produced a season-best four catches for 105 yards against the Colts.
Houston, which lost 30-23 to the Indianapolis, sits second in the AFC South with a 4-3 record. The team will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 8.
