Texans safety Ed Reed told Deion Sanders that he’es 75-80 percent healthy right now and couldn’t play in a game, unless it was the Super Bowl.
Ed Reed told Deion Sanders that he's 75-80 percent. Wouldn't play if today was the opener. If the Super Bowl was today, "I'd play"

Of course Reed would force himself to play if the Super Bowl was today. But the real question is, how effective would he be?
I don’t expect Reed to get back on the field until some time in September. He still has to get in football shape and will be rusty when he’s healthy again.
