Safety Ed Reed is making his Houston Texans debut Sunday, according to ESPN.
Reed was expecting to play against his former team -- the Baltimore Ravens -- but coach Gary Kubiak said Friday he would be a game-time decision.
The Texans take on the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium at 1 p.m. ET.
Reed, a 12-year veteran, underwent offseason hip surgery after signing a three-year, $15 million contract in March to join the Texans and missed the first two games. However, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year has been practicing in some capacity for the past two weeks.
Kubiak said Friday that Reed's status might be based on his pregame workout. Apparently, he was deemed good to go after warming up Sunday morning.
Reed almost talked his way onto the field last Sunday, but Kubiak overruled him.
Reed, 35, is a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and the NFL's all-time active leader with 61 interceptions for 1,506 interception return yards.
