Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller V has been dealing with chest and elbow injuries that he suffered during Week 3's overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. His injuries held him out of practice on Wednesday, but things appear to be trending in the right direction.

Fuller participated in practice on Thursday, which is great news for the Dolphins. It remains to be seen just how much his injuries have healed, but this update should certainly provide fans with optimism ahead of this week's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

Will Fuller Injury Update

Injuries and other off-field issues have plagued Fuller throughout his career. He's missed a total of 29 games throughout his six-year career, so you can't blame fans for being worried about his latest injuries.

Besides, the 27-year-old had already missed Week 1 of this season due to him serving the final game of his 2020 performance-enhancing drug-related suspension and Week 2 because of personal reasons.

Fuller made his Dolphins debut last week, catching three of his six targets for 20 yards while also recording a two-point conversation. His numbers probably would have been better if sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa wasn't dealing with his own injuries, forcing Jacoby Brissett to be the starter.

Now, Fuller has the opportunity to bounce back against a Colts team that he knows well. He played Indianapolis six times when he was a Texan, recording 18 receptions for 266 yards and a touchdown.

The Colts are surrendering 233.0 passing yards (12th) and a league-leading 3.0 touchdowns through the air per game this year, so the opportunity is definitely there for Fuller to get back on the right track this Sunday. He just needs Brissett to start finding him downfield.
