Ed Reed is doubtful for the Houston Texans opener on Monday Night. Reed has been sidelined with a hip injury. Reed was brought to the Texans to help them get over the top and get some wins in the playoffs. If he needs some rest, then the team should give him some tender, love and care until he is ready to go.
The Texans should have enough on defense until he is ready to get back onto the field. He will be needed more toward the end of the year and in the playoffs.
While Reed is out, Shiloh Keo is the next man listed on the depth chart. He will get the opportunity to play behind that front 7.
