The Houston Texans have been without their big free agent safety Ed Reed so far this season. Head coach Gary Kubiak thinks Ed Reed is “really close” to being ready according to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky. Kubiak also said that Reed was considered to be “day to day,” according to Kuharsky.

Ed Reed was inactive for the Monday Night Football opener against the San Diego Chargers after missing the entire preseason. The Texans pass defense played fairly well in the opener holding the Chargers to 183 yards through the air. That was the 9th best mark in the NFL in the opening week. Of course, they were playing the Chargers.

“The question is, is he going to be ready right off the get-go?” Kubiak said in late August, via the Houston Chronicle. “That’s something that’s got to get sorted out here pretty quickly. But you’ve got to understand our approach. Our whole training camp has been without him, so the team’s not going to panic.”

In late August, Reed received more injections in his hip when he visited his surgeon in Vail, Colorado.
