Texans incur critical loss at worst possible time

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.

Who is actually determining how much Jose Abreu is playing right now? Is it Joe Espada or is someone telling him from the top of the organization to play Abreu and not take him out of clutch moments?

Also, could Espada be sending a message to the front office by giving them a good look at how bad he is, and how much he's hurting the team with regular playing time?

ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham makes that case in the video above, but his radio partner Joel Blank isn't quite buying it.
