All offseason it hasn’t sounded like safety Ed Reed will be ready for the Texans season opener after undergoing hip surgery.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle certainly isn’t optimistic Reed will play when the season kicks off in a few weeks.
I'll be stunned if Ed Reed is playing against the Chargers. I've thought all along he'd answer the opening bell but now I don't think so.
