Fuller was a first-round pick out of Notre Dame last season. He caught 47 passes for 635 yards and two touchdowns as the secondary target in the passing game behind DeAndre Hopkins. Losing him for any significant amount of time will certainly hurt the offense, no matter who starts at quarterback.
Broken collarbones are injuries that take time to fully heal — just ask Tony Romo. So it looks like Braxton Miller needs to step up big time in Fuller’s absence, not to mention Jaelen Strong.
