UPDATE: Fuller is expected to play on Sunday, “unless anything crazy happens between now and game time,” according to NFL Network reporter James Palmer.

Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is a game-time decision after getting in limited work all week. He was able to see limited work last week as well and didn’t end up being active on game day. He’s likely tested his groin injury in practice more this week, and is in a better spot to play, as the Texans travel to Kansas City for their Divisional round matchup.

Fuller was able to play when these two teams met in Week 6. He had a so-so game, but his presence is always a big addition for this offense, as teams can’t focus on DeAndre Hopkins quite as much and if they do, Fuller has the ability to run laps around opponents.

Earlier in the week Ian Rapoport reported that the Texans “are expecting” to have Fuller back this week and coach Bill O’Brien said on Friday in response to a question about Fuller’s health. “so far, so good,” but still called him a “game-time decision.” Signs are pointing up on his status at the moment. An in-game aggravation of his hamstring or groin is always a possibility with Fuller but if he plays, his upside remains good and his presence will help DeShaun Watson’s fantasy projections.
