LOS ANGELES — Texans starting wide receiver Will Fuller is out for a preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams due to a hamstring injury.
Fuller tweaked his leg during practice this week.
It’s not expected to be a long-term injury.
Fuller was limited to 28 receptions for 423 yards and seven scores last season as he was held to 10 games due to a broken collarbone and a knee injury.
Fuller underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in January and has made a full recovery. He’ll start opposite All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins this season.
Fuller’s first game of the year is expected to be in the opener against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
“He’s had a good preseason,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said this week. “Really good route runner. I think he’s added weight, which has helped him. He’s stronger. It’s helped his hands. His hands are stronger.”
