The Houston Texans came back to beat the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs, and they expect a key weapon back for the Divisional round. Wide receiver Will Fuller has been inactive the past two weeks with a groin injury, but the team expects him back against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

Kenny Stills started opposite DeAndre Hopkins against the Bills, and DeAndre Carter was the third receiver. Hopkins led the team with six receptions on eight targets for 90 yards. Stills caught four of his five targets for 46 yards and Carter caught one of two targets for five yards.

If Fuller is able to go, he will start opposite Hopkins and Stills will serve the third receiver role. Carter could still get some work, but if Fuller is able to play the whole game, Carter would be primarily a kick and punt returner.
