, a deep threat opposite DeAndre Hopkins, continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.“Everything’s going well with Will,” Texans General Manager Brian Gaine said at the team’s pre-draft news conference. “I won’t speak to specifics, but I anticipate when we kick off versus New Orleans, he’ll be ready to go.

He’s looking good – mind, spirit, body – everything’s going well for Will, and we’re excited about seeing him get back on the field.”The Texans felt good enough about Fuller’s return that they let Demaryius Thomas go. Fuller injured his right knee in an Oct. 25 game against the Dolphins.Fuller has 11 touchdowns in the 11 games he has played with Deshaun Watson.

Safety Troy Polamalu leads the list, along with wide receiver Reggie Wayne and linebacker Patrick Willis. A deeper group is coming up in 2021, when Peyton Manning Womens Dylan Cole Jersey
, Charles Woodson, and Calvin Johnson will be eligible.
