Ed Reed “unlikely” to play

The Texans look like they’ll be playing the waiting game with safety Ed Reed for at least one more week.

Reed is going to test his surgically repaired hip during pregame, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that word around the team is that Reed is “trending downward” in terms of his chances of playing. A source told Rapoport that it was “unlikely” that Reed will play against the Titans, which would make him 0-for-2 so far this season when it comes to playing in the regular season.

Reed’s absence shouldn’t have a huge impact on the Texans defense. They’re well used to playing without him at this point and Reed isn’t going to be in the starting lineup if he does play. Shiloh Keo will be in that role for at least this weekend’s game with Tennessee and possibly even longer since Reed will take some time to ramp up to full speed when he finally does resume playing.

When that will be remains up in the air, with the Texans hoping that it isn’t followed quickly by another departure because of an injury to the 35-year-old’s body.

    Starting to look like Ed should have rode off into the sunset after the Super Bowl, and had the Ravens be the only team he played for. The Ravens still might be the only team he’s ever played for. Being a Texans cheerleader doesn’t count.

    There is no way he is missing next week against the ravens.

    Ed Reed is old in the face.
