Texans coach Wade Phillips unleashed a secret last week that linebacker Brooks Reed underwent surgery to repair a groin injury in January. What most of us weren’t expecting, was for Reed to be so close to 100 per cent just as OTA’s are about to begin.

Dave Zangaro of CSN Houston reported earlier today that Reed’s injury was sustained during Thanksgiving last year, and that he has had “a lot of time to recover”. The news is good since the Texans struggled last season at linebacker, and may also see Brian Cushing finally return fit and healthy.

The Texans defense now looks to be taking shape following the draft. Two big returns, and the edition of Sam Montgomery and Trevardo Williams at the same position add a lot of extra depth.

There should be some big battles at training camp for starting spots.
