Shiloh Keo to start Week 2, but Ed Reed progressing

Posted Sep 12, 2013

Free safety Ed Reed took more reps on Thursday, but Shiloh Keo will still be the starter for Week 2's matchup with Tennessee.

The comeback continues for free safety Ed Reed, but whether or not he plays against the Titans will likely be decided on Sunday morning. But no matter what, Shiloh Keo will start Week 2.

"Shiloh will start the game," head coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday. "If Ed plays it will be a certain percentage of plays. There will obviously be a play count on him when he plays. Hopefully that will be this week."

The veteran signed with the Texans in late March and has been recovering from a hip injury h suffered shortly thereafter. Kubiak said Reed took a few more reps Thursday in pads than he did this time a week ago. That has the head coach enthused, but it hasn't changed the way the Texans have prepared.

"We're making good progress," Kubiak said. "We'll keep preparing the way we've been preparing and when we get there it will be a big plus."

Although he was inactive in San Diego, and won't start against the Titans, that hasn't changed the way Reed has gone about getting ready.

"I’m preparing always to play," Reed said. "Like I said, it’s day-to-day, game-to-game. We’ll see how it goes. Work went good today. Worked out well."

After a walkthrough on Wednesday, the Texans donned pads for Thursday's practice. Reed described how his time at the Houston Methodist Training Center went.

"Did some scout team reps, even played nickel a little bit to get some other movement around," Reed said. "Feeling much better than I felt last week, so we’ll see how it goes.”

The return from injury has been a collaborative effort, as Reed has dealt with head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan and company, as well as specialists in Vail, Colorado and Atlanta, Georgia. Plus, general manager Rick Smith has a role as well. Reed had a hip injury in 2010, and has said this go-round has been easier and less painful.

"We're having to listen to him a great deal, becuase he's been through it," Kubiak said. "But I think we all get together. That's the way we've been doing it. Between Ed and I, Kap, his doctors and Rick, there's a lot of people involved in this process."

Kubiak said it will be "exciting" when Reed winds up hitting the field for game action.
