Gary Kubiak indicates he’s “impressed” with Ed Reed’s recovery


Texans safety Ed Reed has begun training camp on the active  / physically unable to perform list, but head coach Gary Kubiak indicated he believes the veteran defensive back is recovering well from hip surgery.

“I’m impressed with where he’s at,” Kubiak said of Reed, according to a transcript from the club. “He’s come a long way, watching him work with the guys today. They’ve got him on a program. We’ll work him out early in the mornings when the team’s doing individual stuff and try to have him available when we’re doing team, so he’s learning our system and those type of things.

“He knows what he has to do to get ready, but I’m impressed with how far he’s come.”

Reed was present at practice on Friday and worked on the side, per John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Kubiak’s update on Reed will have suffice for now; per McClain, Reed wasn’t talking to reporters on Friday.

“I’m on PUP; no interviews,” Reed said, according to the Chronicle.

  1. Before this, all Ravens fans and other trolls could do was bash the Texans saying Reed duped them, lied about his injuries, made the Texans look stupid, blah blah blah.

    Now that he’s in camp, all they can do is make fun of his appearance.


  2. He’s in camp but he’s not going to practice till the end.he does the same thing evey year,holds out,says i’m retiring,want to be with family,ect…we’ll see what you got when it’s time to play..

  3. I’m glad Reed is doing better and hope he has a successful season for the Texans. Not that any internet armchair GMs matter, but the only people who should care much one way or the other are Ravens fans and Texans fans and I don’t see how either contingent can be unhappy with this news. Reed is one of the three best Ravens ever and meant so much to the franchise, just be happy for him. And the Texans of course hope they get a solid mentor and ballhawk for a few years before he rides off into the sunset.

  4. They just don’t get it. Just like in Baltimore, reed will only play the amount of games that he feels he should be paid for. He pulled the same thing with the Ravens. He played 8 games 2 years go because he felt he was short changed in negotiations. He wanted 7 million this off season but got 4 . He will not play more than 8 games this year including the post season. It’s his M.O..
