Wilson adds that Fuller is expected to make a “full recovery,” so it appears there isn’t a longterm concern.
He missed five games during the 2019 regular season due to hamstring and groin injuries, including the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
Fuller, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $10.164 million contract and stood to make a base salary of $1.83 million for the 2019 season when the Texans exercised his fifth-year option this offseason.
This will cost the Texans around $10.1 million, but is guaranteed for injury only and won’t prevent them from working on an extension over the next year.
In 2019, Fuller appeared in 11 games for the Texans and caught 49 passes for 670 yards and three touchdowns.
