LOS ANGELES -- Wide receiver Will Fuller V was ruled out with a ribs injury suffered in the Houston Texans' 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams but said after the game that his ribs are "a little sore, but I should be OK."
Fuller was injured in the second quarter after he took a hard hit while attempting to catch a short pass up the middle of the field. The wide receiver stayed down on the field and was helped up and to the sideline by the Texans' medical staff.
"It always hurts [to be without Fuller]," quarterback Tom Savage said. "He's a dynamic player to take the top off the defense, and I hope he's all right."
Prior to the injury, Fuller had two catches for 15 yards on three targets. This season, he has 17 catches for 326 yards and seven touchdowns in six games, after he missed the first three weeks with a broken collarbone.
