Texans expect Ed Reed to be ready for start of season

Posted May 22, 2013

Free safety Ed Reed has not been at Texans OTAs while recovering from hip surgery, but the Texans expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season.



Free safety Ed Reed has not been at Texans OTAs while recovering from hip surgery, but the Texans expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Reed had minor surgery in late April, about a month after signing with the Texans from the Baltimore Ravens. The nine-time Pro Bowler is expected to leave Colorado, where he had the surgery, later this week.

“We know what we know,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said on Tuesday. “He had the surgery. Everything went well. He went through the process of staying in Colorado, which was part of the deal, part of the rehab process. Now, he’s supposed to be turned loose this week. Everything that we know is on schedule and our expectations are to look at camp at some point and be ready to go at the opening of the season.”

Reed is one of two Texans players not present at OTAs. The other is inside linebacker Tim Dobbins, a special teams captain who started five games last season. Dobbins re-signed with the Texans in April as an unrestricted free agent.

“It’s voluntary,” Kubiak said on Tuesday after being asked about Dobbins’ absence. “He’s not here, but our work has been good. Of our 59 guys that were under contract for the offseason, 57 of those guys were here the whole time. Obviously, Ed isn’t healthy, but other than that, it’s voluntary and Tim is not here.”
