The Houston Texans were among the league’s worst pass-defenses last season, and in order to let that be what prevents them from making a deep playoff run this year, they went out and signed the best free agent defensive back on the market. He also happened to be a future hall-of-famer and Super Bowl champion in safety Ed Reed, who came to Houston after winning his first title with the Baltimore Ravens.

But offseason hip surgery has delayed his debut in Houston, and after missing the first game of the season, Reed will enter this week listed as a gametime decision. The Texans would love to have him sooner rather than later after they gave up four passing touchdowns to Phillip Rivers last week, as it’s apparent that hey’re no better than last season with Reed out of the lineup.

 “The question right now is when is he ready for those first 25, 30 plays,” Kubiak said. “When we get there, it will be a big plus.”
