Houston (CBS Houston) – With the uncertainty of running back Arian Fosters return status, the Texans can be a bit encouraged that safety Ed Reed could see the field soon.
Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said the team got good news about Reed on Saturday, after he went down to Atlanta and worked with a hip specialist. The specialist is also working closely with the teams head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan.
Coach Kubiak was hopeful on the good news he received over the weekend, “We think he’s ahead and has responded very well. We were going to do that again this week for a few days. So we’re just exhausting everything we possibly can do to get him ready to go and push toward the beginning of the season.”
Reed’s return is still unclear and he hasn’t been on the practice field. But it was a good sign seeing him in Houston as the Texans defeated the Dolphins, 24-17 on Saturday.
“He (Reed) was with us here last night for the game last night and we did meet with the people he’s been working with.” Kubiak ended, “There has been a lot of progress, lot of good progress.”
The Texans open up their season on Monday night, September 9 at San Diego against the Chargers.
