The Texans got an unexpected surprise from newly-signed safety Ed Reed, in the form of surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.
It’s kept him out of the team’s offseason program. According to the Texans’ official website, Reed is rehabbing the hip in Atlanta, with the goal of joining the team before a mandatory minicamp in June.
“I had a long conversation with Ed yesterday,” coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday. “I think he actually got back to Atlanta on Saturday. We have him in a rehab program there in Atlanta.”
Reed plans to join his former teammates on June 7 as they collect their Super Bowl rings and visit the White House.
“That’s pretty important for him to get that stuff done there, but he will be back here as we approach the mandatory minicamp and be here for the rehab process,” Kubiak said. “So you guys should see him in about a week.”
While Reed will be around, he isn’t expected to practice until training camp.
