Will veteran safety Ed Reed play during the Texans’ regular-season debut Monday at San Diego?
Neither the Texans nor Reed have made an official announcement. But Reed’s recently gone from being taken off the physically unable to perform list to practicing this week with the Texans, and his new teammates are already impressed with his initial contributions.
“I don’t know how he’s feeling but he’s looking good out there,” rookie defensive back A.J. Bouye said Tuesday. “I’m just watching him, just learning stuff from him and how he takes practice and how he plays. It’s good. It’s a different type of atmosphere when he’s out there … you see him competing and everything, especially on the back end.”
Coach Gary Kubiak didn’t address the media Tuesday and Reed wasn’t available for comment. But Kubiak’s often said Reed will make the final call as to whether he plays Monday and the recent sight of the veteran on the practice field has many Texans believing he’ll be on a real field against the Chargers.
“Only Ed knows that,” veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson said. “I know he was real close to feeling well, just from talking to him. Just seeing him on the field is a positive. If he wasn’t feeling well he wouldn’t be out there. He knows when he’ll be ready. Hopefully, it’ll be for Monday night.”
