Houston Texans WR Will Fuller left Sunday's game versus the Colts due to a hamstring injury. Fuller was later ruled out by the team for the duration of the contest.

It looks like the injury will cause Fuller to miss a few more games. According to the latest report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Houston receiver has a "rather significant hamstring pull."

Fuller is "expected to miss several weeks" because of the injury.

The Texans WR has caught 34 passes for 450 yards and three touchdowns through seven games this year. Fuller was on pace for his best season yet in the NFL. But a few missed games because of the hamstring injury might jeopardize that.

Houston is currently 4-3 after its 30-23 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Looking ahead at the Texans' schedule, they'll face Oakland this Sunday before a road contest in Jacksonville on Nov. 3.

The team will then have a bye week. Initial target dates for Fuller's return — pending his recovery — include week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens or week 12 in another contest vs. the Colts.

Of course, it all depends on how long it takes for Fuller to recover. As Rapoport suggests in his report, the Texans WR is expected to miss a few games.

Let's hope Fuller can make a full recovery and get back on the field soon.
