As reported by Rotoworld.com, Brooks Reed will return to the starting rotation this week. This will bolster the defense against the pass and run as it will allow fellow player Whitney Mercilus to stay fresher on passing downs, but may also free up linebacker Connor Barwin as well. This could not come at a better time as the Houston Texans face off against the man nicknamed “All Day”, Adrian Peterson, as he drives forward for Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record.
