Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller has missed the past two games due to a hamstring injury. But after logging limited practice reps on Wednesday, Fuller is optimistic regarding his status for Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Fuller has been in and out of the lineup all season long. Even when he has been active, in nine of the Texans' 14 games, he has rarely been fully healthy.

But after getting limited work in on Wednesday, there is confidence around the team that he will get cleared to play, and his teammates know just how big his return is for the team. Quarterback Deshaun Watson said his return would be "very big," noting that he is a player that can make "big-time plays and that can take the top off."

With a 4.28 40-yard dash time when fully healthy, Fuller is among the league's most dangerous weapons, especially when considering he plays opposite of DeAndre Hopkins, who is among the top players in the league. Since Fuller relies so heavily on his athleticism, a hamstring injury like this is a troublesome one, so make sure to check the Texans practice reports later in the week.

Fuller is not ranked in our Week 15 PPR rankings, though he will certainly jump into the conversation if he's cleared to play against a Tennessee Titans defense that ranks 23rd in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings.
