The Texans won their fifth consecutive game Thursday with a 42-23 victory over the Dolphins, but it came at a cost.
Third-year wide receiver Will Fuller was taken off the field in the fourth quarter and coach Bill O’Brien confirmed Friday that Fuller suffered a torn ACL.

Before his injury, Fuller had five catches for 124 yards, including a 73-yard touchdown. He has 32 receptions for 503 yards and four touchdowns this season.
Fellow Houston wideout Keke Coutee missed Thursday’s game with a hamstring injury, but if Fuller misses extended time, Coutee will have to produce in a big way when healthy for the AFC South-leading Texans.
