Texans' Will Fuller: Main punt returner in Week 13

Fuller will be Houston's top punt returner when the Texans travel to Green Bay for Week 13, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With Tyler Ervin (rib) expected to miss a second consecutive week, the speedy Fuller fills in again on special teams. Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller, who has a punt return for a touchdown this season, made some mistakes last week, but he's confident in the rookie's ability. Having him return punts is the surest sign that he's in better health after dealing with hamstring and knee injuries the last month. His four-catch, 60-yard effort in last week's loss to San Diego provides a glimmer of hope that Fuller is back to being the receiver who had 19 catches for 323 yards and two touchdowns over the first four games of the season.
