HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - Ed Reed will not be taking any chances with his ailing hip.  On Wednesday the Super Bowl-winning safety visited the White House with his Raven teammates to meet President Obama. After his visit, Reed told BaltimoreRavens.com that the goal was to be healthy for the final stretch of the season and playoffs.

“I plan on being back for Week 1,” Reed said. “But as you’ve known me for the longest time, I’m going to be smart about my injuries and make sure I’m there for the later part of the season when the team really needs me.”

The President called Reed a “class act” but did make some jokes about the 34-year old’s age.

“The man’s getting some gray hair though,” Obama said. “I’m not the only one. You’re like an old man, I’m telling you. That makes me feel better.”

The nine-time Pro Bowl safety has missed OTAs but will join the Houston Texans team, albeit on the sidelines, during the team’s mandatory minicamp this month.  Reed has been undergoing rehabilitation for the April hip surgery he had for a torn labrum.  For now, the Texans expect him to be ready to play during the middle of training camp which begins July 26.  Reed, if healthy, will face his former team when the Texans travel to Baltimore in Week 3 of the regular season.
