When the Texans return to action after this week's bye, the team should finally be fully healthy again at wide receiver.

Houston receivers Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington, two of the team's top three wideouts, haven't been on the field at the same time since the team's Week 4 loss to the Falcons.

Texans receivers coach Stan Hixon said Tuesday he's looking forward to having both back on the field alongside star DeAndre Hopkins when Houston faces the Cincinnati Bengals on Nov. 16.

"It hasn't happened very often, but when all three were going at the same time, we were pretty good," Stan Hixon said, per the Houston Chronicle. "I think with the upcoming game, we should have -- hopefully have all three together at the same time. Cecil has done a good job and Nate is getting better and better. The chemistry with the quarterback with Nate has been really good the last two ball games."

Washington, who has 26 receptions for 411 yards and four touchdowns, suffered a hamstring injury in the loss to Atlanta and sat out of the team's games against Indianapolis and Jacksonville.

Shorts has caught 26 passes for 299 yards and one touchdown, but has missed three games with a shoulder injury and a hamstring issue.
