While the Texans' offense didn't look sharp in their season opener against the New England Patriots, the absence of Will Fuller greatly affected their passing game. Fortunately for Houston, the talented wideout from Notre Dame is now ready to make an impact.

After battling a hamstring injury to start the season, Fuller proved he was healing quickly with his activity during practice. Well, head coach Bill O'Brien wasted little time announcing the playing status of his electric wide receiver.

With Houston traveling to Tennessee in their first divisional matchup of 2018, Fuller will be active.

Not only does Fuller take some of the attention off DeAndre Hopkins, but he also stretches the field on vertical routes.

It became apparent that Fuller and Deshaun Watson had great chemistry in 2017. Last season, Fuller had seven touchdowns on just 28 receptions, proving he's a game-changing weapon.

The Titans surrendered 106 yards and two touchdowns to Kenny Stills last week. Considering that both Stills and Fuller have a similar playing style, the Texans might witness an impressive performance from their speedy wideout.
