“We’ll see,” Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Friday about Reed’s status. “We feel good about (Friday). The biggest thing as I keep telling y’all is it is how he comes out of practices.
“He came out of (Thursday) really good. We’ll see how we did (Friday). We were able to practice outside even though the weather was bad, we were able to stay off the turf and stay outside, so that was a good thing.”
Reed will start the game against the Ravens, the team he won the Super Bowl with last season.
Last season, Reed, finished with 58 tackles, and four interceptions. For his career Reed has 61 interceptions and 606 tackles.
