Fuller posted eight tackles (seven solo), a sack and a pass breakup in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Giants. Fuller led the team in tackles and notched the second sack of his six-year NFL career. He's off to a hot start in the tackling department with 13 stops through two games. Fuller produced 99 tackles through 25 games over the last two years.
Fuller played 14 games in 2020, recording 50 tackles (38 solo), 11 pass defenses and four interceptions on 892 snaps. Traded from Washington to Kansas City in 2018, the Maryland native re-signed with his original team last offseason on a four-year, $40 million contract. Fuller lived up to the deal in Year 1, playing 99.2 percent of defensive snaps in his 14 active games and leading the team in interceptions. PFF graded him at No. 44 among 122 qualified cornerbacks, with Fuller taking 83 percent of his snaps on the perimeter. He also has experience playing safety and nickelback, so it's possible he'll find more tackle opportunities in 2021, though it might require a teammate missing time with an injury.
Fuller played every snap on defense in Weeks 3 and 4, notching two tackles and two interceptions. Calf and knee injuries cost Fuller the first two games of the season, but he hasn't shown any limitations since joining the lineup. While known for his versatility in Kansas City, the 25-year-old has largely stuck to perimeter coverage in his second stint with Washington, logging 102 of his 120 snaps as an outside cornerback, per PFF.
Fuller (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report. Fuller missed the first two contests of the year due to a knee injury, but it looks like he's now fully on track for Week 3. As long as fuller avoids any setbacks leading up to Sunday's game in Cleveland, he should handle a starting role at cornerback.
Fuller (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Fuller was limited in practice all week leading up to the season opener, for which he was ultimately ruled out. However, he was a full participant twice this week before downgrading to a limited session Friday, so the Football Team will likely monitor his progress over the weekend. If he can't go, expect Jimmy Moreland to start at corner Sunday.
