Texans receiver Demaryius Thomas was carted off the field and quickly ruled out after suffering an Achilles injury in the second half of Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thomas is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles.
Coutee missed all of the Texans preseason and a majority of the start of the regular season with the same injury. If unable to return next week, the Texans will likely turn to Smith to help pick up the slack. Smith has one catch this season for 28 yards.
Fuller (hamstring) took limited practice reps all week and expected to play. He has caught 10 touchdowns in his last seven games with Deshaun Watson. Coutee was also dealing with a hammy issue and will also play, but with Fuller in the lineup Coutee loses fantasy value.
