First place in the AFC South is on the line tonight when the Houston Texans battle the Indianapolis Colts. Not only is T.Y. Hilton scheduled to return for Thursday Night Football, fourth-year wideout Will Fuller is also expected to play.

Houston could use Fuller to open up its offense against Indianapolis. He's been out of the lineup since October due to a hamstring injury.

The Texans listed Fuller as questionable for this game, but head coach Bill O'Brien provided an update on his talented wide receiver.

O'Brien told ESPN reporter Ed Werder that Fuller is going to play against the Colts.

Fuller has 34 receptions for 450 yards and three touchdowns this season. Most of his production came on Oct. 6 when he torched the Atlanta Falcons for 217 receiving yards and three scores.

Deshaun Watson often targets Fuller down the field. Now that he's back in the lineup, the Texans might want to test the Colts' secondary early in the game.

For the first time in over a month, the Texans will have three talented wideouts at their disposal. DeAndre Hopkins and Kenny Stills might have an easier time getting open since Fuller is back in the mix.

Kickoff for this game is at 8:20 p.m. ET from NRG Stadium.
