Gary Kubiak is giving safety Ed Reed a shot to play on Monday Night


In other Houston Texans related news, head coach Gary Kubiak is giving free safety Ed Reed a shot to play in Monday night’s opener against the Houston Texans.

“I don’t want to say it can’t happen because there’s been such good progress. So we’ll see day to day. He’s come a long way. There’s some progress that would have to be made to get him ready to go on Monday, but boy, has he made a lot of progress.” Head coach Gary Kubiak said in an interview via USA Today.

Ed Reed, a 35 year old Super Bowl champion is the new guy for the first time in his career since he was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens. But having the experience he has under his belt, doesn’t make him an ordinary new player, it makes him a leader.

Like Ray Lewis, Reed as a leader for the Baltimore Ravens defense. Every defensive player who is on this roster will learn a lot from the veteran safety.

Just like in Baltimore, he’ll be that player getting in the ear of the younger guys offering advice no matter if he’s in the game or watching on the sidelines.
