HOUSTON (AP) — Texans receiver Will Fuller has a torn knee ligament and will miss the rest of the season Womens Andre Hal Jersey , a big blow to a team that has won five in a row and is coming off a high-scoring victory.He was injured during the fourth quarter Thursday night against Miami when he became entangled with a defender and tumbled to the ground.Coach Bill O’Brien said Friday he doesn’t know when Fuller will have surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.“I’m very disappointed for Will because Will’s a great guy,” O’Brien said. “He’s really been playing at a high level.”Fuller had a season-high 124 yards receiving with a 73-yard touchdown on Thursday before the injury. He had 503 yards receiving and four touchdowns in seven games this season. The third-year player was a first-round pick in 2016.The Texans ran up a season-high 42 points against the Dolphins and have recovered from their 0-3 start to the season. At 5-3, they are leading the AFC South.“If you go through every team, everybody’s dealing with injuries,” O’Brien said. “It’s such a cliche, but the coaching staff, the players Womens Kareem Jackson Jersey , we all have to pitch in and figure it out and figure out how we’re going to construct the offense. And maybe some things will be the same and maybe some things will be a little bit different.”The loss of Fuller is the latest setback for a team which played without receiver Keke Coutee on Thursday night. The rookie, a fourth-round pick, injured his hamstring last Sunday against Jacksonville after missing the first three games of the season with a different hamstring injury.Since Houston doesn’t play again until a trip to Denver on Nov. 4, there is a possibility that Coutee will be healthy by then.“We’ll see where he’s at … he’s a guy who had been playing well for us, and hopefully he can come back at some point,” O’Brien said.Coutee has 21 receptions for 196 yards and a touchdown this season.“Keke’s a very versatile guy,” O’Brien said. “You’ve seen us put him in the backfield. He’s played on the outside and obviously he plays on the inside. So he’s got versatility. A little bit different than Will , no doubt about it. Every guy’s different. But he does a lot of (good) things.”With Fuller out, the Texans could look for increased production from Sammie Coates and Vyncint Smith or get their running backs and tight ends more involved in the passing game.O’Brien also didn’t rule out the possibility of the Texans signing a player to help fill in.“I know there’s guys in the locker room that can do certain things,” O’Brien said. “Obviously if they could do them like Will, they would have been out there like Will. But there’s definitely guys who can do some things. We’ve got a lot of good players in that locker room.” As expected, the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft will be a Texan for at least one more year."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Texans StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Texans NewsYahoo Texans Team PageYahoo Texans ReportYahoo Texans Depth ChartYahoo Texans TransactionsYahoo Texans PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub 鉁?019 NFL Free Agency2019 Houston Texans Offseason2019 NFL Free Agency News: Houston Texans Place Franchise Tag On Jadeveon ClowneyNew,158commentsAs expected, the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft will be a Texan for at least one more year.CSTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Free Agency News: Houston Texans Place Franchise Tag On Jadeveon ClowneyThomas B. Shea-USA TODAY SportsAccording toNFL Network’s Tom Pelissero Womens Natrell Jamerson Jersey , Jadeveon Clowney will be keeping his talents in Houston for the 2019 season, as the team used its franchise tag on the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.The Texans have confirmed the move:Obviously it remains to be seen if Clowney will remain with the Texans beyond 2019, but tagging him gives Brian Gaine a little bit more time to work out a long-term deal that makes sense for both parties. Clowney’s talent has always been evident, but perhaps the Texans still have some reservations about giving $18 million a year (or more)for several years to someone who has never had double-digit sacks and who has only played sixteen games once in his career.Perhaps one more “make or break” year will do Clowney and the team some good. JD can prove that he’s worth the money (or even raise his value even higher, perhaps closer to the Khalil Mack or Aaron Donald level he surely wants to attain) while the Texans can make themselves feel better about giving up that money in the first place. That sounds like a win-win to me.
