Kubiak: Call on Ed Reed will be made Monday

The Texans will wait until gameday to decide whether free safety Ed Reed (hip) will play in the season opener at San Diego on Monday night, head coach Gary Kubiak said, according to the club’s official Twitter feed.

If Reed plays, it will be as a reserve. Shiloh Keo will get the start at free safety, Kubiak said Saturday, per the club.

Reed, 34, is in his first season with Houston after 11 campaigns with Baltimore. He had offseason hip surgery.

“I’ve been progressing,” Reed said on Friday, according to the team. “I feel strong, but I know I still have some things that are weak because you have that hip surgery; you lose strength, which you’re usually losing your glut strength, your hamstring to overwork. My left hip was compensating as well. It’s a lot of maintenance that I have to do to make sure nothing else happens and I pray nothing us happens, but you can’t control it. That’s football. You tend to have injuries.”

    That call will be no. They don’t need him. The chargers are a special kind of bad this year. It could be a possible trap game but I hope the Texans are good enough to not get trapped. They should be

    On Monday Reed will announce his retirement and laugh to the bank.

    I gotta feeling Texans will miss Glover Quin…especially if Reed can’t get on field.

    GQ was always solid. Never a superstar, but a much preferred alternative to freaking Shiloh Keo if Ed Reed does not suit up.

    Ed Reed had 7 million reasons to not retire.

    We need all the help we can get! LOL. I hope this game resembles the SD-KC 2010 Monday night game where an inferior team (KC) got statistically dominated but beat the superior team (SD) due to special teams scores and getting turnovers. It’s really the only shot the 2013 Chargers have!
