Ed Reed on return to Baltimore: It’s going to be awesome

The Texans are going to be in Baltimore on Sunday and safety Ed Reed doesn’t know whether or not he’ll be able to play against his former Ravens teammates.

It’s looking like another game-time decision for Reed this week. He’s been on the wrong side of those decisions in each of the first two weeks and said Thursday that he wasn’t confident of anything but being day-to-day when asked about whether or not he’d play. Reed also said that the trip to Baltimore was just “another away game,” but later admitted that there was more to it than that.

Reed’s returning on the same day that Ray Lewis goes into the Ravens’ Ring of Honor, which is going to make for an atmosphere that is distinctly different from all the other road games that Reed’s been a part of in the NFL.

“It was planned that way for a reason,” Reed said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. “It really is going to be a special day with me coming back, Ray going into the Ring of Honor, the Texans playing the Ravens. … Coming back to see the boys, see the coaches, it’s going to be awesome.”

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said earlier this week that Reed is the closest he’s been to playing since having hip surgery this offseason. If he does suit up, the rest of the Texans will probably find that more awesome than the Ravens-specific portion of the afternoon.

    Personally, as long as the Texans were winning, I’d keep Ed on the bench until late in the season. I suspect he’s pretty fragile at this point, so I’d save him for playoff time when things matter the most.

    It’s going to be awesome because the ravens don’t stand a chance

    I guess just standing on the sidelines counting money is better than actually retiring and not getting paid

    Since when is it the players decision to tell the coach and medical staff when he’s coming back. I don’t think he wants to play against his old team and I DON’T expect him to. It seems HE make the choices not the coach. Flame if you want but just listen closely to him remarks.

    Although I am a Texans fan, by no means well this be a blowout! The Texans have had two very close games and I expect nothing less for this one. Foster had to get his legs going if we are going to to win this one. Texans 17-10

    Stupid auto correct, but you get the point!

    It bums me out to see Reed in another team’s uniform & I wish him well, except when he’s playing the Ravens. I do scratch my head at Houston’s decision to pay him, considering his well-known & nagging neck injury, notwithstanding the off-season hip surgery.
