The answer to Ed Reed
’s return could be mere days away. On Friday, head coach Gary Kubiak said the nine-time Pro Bowler is ready for field drills, four months after undergoing hip surgery for a torn labrum.
“He’ll be back tomorrow,” Kubiak said Friday. “We’re hoping to do some field drills Monday and Tuesday with our extra days with him, with Kap (Head Athletic Trainer Geoff Kaplan)."
Reed visited his surgeon Dr. Marc Philippon earlier in the week and has made multiple trips to Atlanta to meet with the rehab specialist who helped him after his previous hip surgery in 2010. With the Texans' season opener in San Diego looming, Kubiak gave a timetable on Reed's status for the primetime game on September 9.
“We’ll probably make a quick decision early in the week, Monday or Tuesday, on his availability for San Diego,” Kubiak said. “We’re sitting here hoping and we’ll see how that goes.”Twitter.com/DeepSlant
