Texans Lose Key Star Ahead Of Bills Game
The Texans lost a key star ahead of the Bills game.
All week long people have wondered whether Houston’s star wide receiver, Will Fuller, will be available to play.
On Saturday, an official answer came down: no.
Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (groin) won’t play against Bills in AFC wild-card game, according to sources. Too soon after getting hurt against Tampa Bay. Look for Keke Coutee to be active

“Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (groin) won’t play against Bills in AFC wild-card game,” wrote Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
“Too soon after getting hurt against Tampa Bay. Look for Keke Coutee to be active.”
That means when the Texans take on the Bills in the opening nd of the AFC playoffs, they will be without one of their most potent weapons.
The odds were against Fuller being able to play in this one, but some in the organization still held out hope that he would be able to give it a shot.
Full missed five games this year due to various health issues.
Houston has not won a playoff game since 2016, and being without Fuller will not make that task any easier.
Under head coach Bill O’Brien, the Texans made the postseason four times in a six season span. The team’s record in those four games is 1-3.
While Fuller will be out, Houston does get a bit of relief on the injury side of things with the return of J.J. Watt.
Watt missed most of the year with a torn pec, but has rehabbed like a mad man all season long just to be able to help his squad in the playoffs.
The Texans and Bills will kick off at 1:30 p.m. PST.
