Texans incur critical loss at worst possible time

There's no sugar-coating it: 2020 has really sucked for a lot of reasons. The Houston Texans' 2020 season has not been the exception.

The latest chapter in the 2020 season saw blazing-fast wide receiver Will Fuller be suspended 6 games by the NFL for violating the league's drug policy. Fuller announced the suspension on his Instagram account earlier today.

This is especially painful for a couple of obvious reasons. The first being that Fuller has been healthy this season. Last week versus the Lions, Fuller went for 171 yards and 2 TDs. Now the blazing fast wide receiver is done for the year and possible done as a Texan, as he is a free agent at the end of the season.

The second reason the timing could not have been worse is that the Texans just released backup Kenny Stills last Friday. Deshaun Watson will have his work cut out for him with one less quality target on the field to close out the season.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
