Texans' Reed to be game-time decision

The SportsXchange

There remains a chance that Houston Texans free safety Ed Reed could play in Monday night's opener against the San Diego Chargers.

Coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle after Friday's practice that Reed, who had his best practice of the preseason, will be a "game-time decision."

"He made a lot more improvement, and I wouldn't rule him out," Kubiak said. "He looks good. He's come a long way."

Reed sat out training camp and a majority of offseason workouts because of a hip injury. All indications are that he is progressing well, but the Texans have proceeded with caution.

The veteran signed with the Texans in March after 11 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

The 34-year-old Reed played in all 16 regular-season games for the Super Bowl champion Ravens last year and compiled 58 tackles and four interceptions. He has 61 career interceptions.

The Texans have one more schedule practice before departing on Sunday for San Diego.
