Ed Reed working with rehab specialist away from Texans camp

Texans free safety Ed Reed wasn’t at practice today. Coach Gary Kubiak said Reed was given permission to work with his own rehabilitation specialist a couple of days this week and next week.

Reed remains on the physically unable to perform list while he recovers from arthroscopic surgery on his hip. Usually, Reed works out on an adjacent field with the other players who are also recovering from injuries.

Kubiak said Reed is visiting with a rehab specialist he’s worked with while recovering from other injuries during his career. Reed is trying to return in time for the regular-season opener at San Diego.

Shiloh Keo, entering his third season, continues to start next to Danieal Manning. rookie D.J. Swearinger comes off the bench.

The truth is that nobody knows when Reed will return, including Reed. Whether it’s the first, second or third game remains to be seen. Until then, it’s business as usual, but it’s without one of the greatest free safeties in NFL history.
