HOUSTON — The Texans fear that wide receiver Will Fuller tore his ACL during Thursday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Fuller injured his knee midway through the fourth quarter while attempting to catch a deep pass from Deshaun Watson in the end zone. He was checked out on the field but was able to walk off under his own power.
An MRI is scheduled for Friday to confirm the diagnosis. The Houston Chronicle first reported the Texans’ concern about Fuller’s injury.
Fuller left the game with five catches for 124 yards, including a 73-yard touchdown. On the touchdown, Fuller easily beat his defender across the middle and down the right sideline, trotting the final 5 yards into the end zone. The pass was the longest touchdown of both Watson’s and Fuller’s careers. The pair has now connected for 11 touchdowns in 11 games played together.
The wide receiver missed a game earlier this season because of a hamstring injury.
After the game, coach Bill O’Brien said he didn’t have an update on Fuller’s status.
“We’ll have to wait and see,” he said.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter contributed to this report.
