Deshaun Watson completes to Will Fuller for a 77 yard touchdown pass for the Houston Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fuller caught all five of his targets on Sunday for 100 yards and a score in a bounce back week following his three catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week Eight defeat to the Green Bay Packers.His value as a deep-threat has been undisputed since being selected in the first round of the 2016 Draft, with niggling injuries the major hindrance to his efforts to establish himself as a consistent threat. The hope is that he has turned a corner this year in regards to his health.Speaking post-game Fuller admitted “it really sucked” to be shopped by the Texans prior to the deadline.“Just giving this organisation my all, coming to work every day, very unselfish player, do everything they ask, and then, just to be shopped around, I did feel a certain type of way,” he said.“But like I said, I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to play with Deshaun and continue to try to get wins with this organisation.”Sky Sports NFL is your dedicated channel for NFL coverage through the season – featuring a host of NFL Network programming, a new weekly preview show as well as at least five games a week and NFL Redzone, you won’t miss a moment.

It was the sixth straight game in which Fuller had hauled in a touchdown catch, marking the longest streak by any player since Antonio Brown’s eight-game stretch in 2018.“It would have been hell if they would have done that, for sure,” Watson said post-game when asked about the possibility of Fuller being traded.“Honestly. I’m glad to continue to play with Will. We’ve been making a lot of big, big plays since I came into this league, [and we’re] going to continue to do that as we continue to go the rest of this year and hopefully the rest of our careers.” – Advertisement – last_img read more

first_imgShay Given has admitted he is frustrated he is not playing first team football but he says he hopes he will get a chance to prove himself again.Shay – still hopeful of a move.The Lifford man, who is on a reported €70K a week at Aston Villa, still has three years left on his contract.Villa are prepared to let him go but few clubs will pay such high money for a 37 year old. Liverpool talked to the player but came nowhere near meeting his wage demands.Given said he is keeping himself very fit and is ready if he gets the call – from whoever.“Of course it’s just frustrating not playing, it’s hard to keep training and know there’s no game at the end of the week,” he said. “Things can change quickly in football with injuries and suspensions and if I get an opportunity I’ve got to be ready to take it if that hopefully comes along. I’m fit as a fiddle and feel really sharp. I’m just raring to get that chance.“I played in Stiliyan Petrov’s testimonial in front of 60,000 fans at the weekend and as a player that’s all you want to do, to show people you’ve still got the ability to play in the Premier League.”  SHAY HOPEFUL OF A MOVE OR A CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF was last modified: September 11th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aston VillaLiffordShay Giventransferlast_img read more
