According to head coach Gary Kubiak, the veteran safety is back with a specialist as part of his rehab from hip surgery he underwent in April.
"He is in Vail, today, getting some injections and spending time with his surgeon," Kubiak said during a Monday afternoon press conference. "I think there's one more trip planned, to Atlanta."
Reed signed with the Texans on March 22, and in the weeks following, said he suffered a hip injury while working out. He had surgery in April and has been rehabbing it since, missing all of OTA's and Training Camp. During camp, he worked out on side fields under the direction of the team's medical training staff. Kubiak remains optimistic about Reed's return, and thinks the team will know much more about Reed's future on Friday.
Reed was on the sidelines for Sunday's preseason contest agains the Saints.
