Texans | Ed Reed to don pads on Friday

Houston Texans S Ed Reed (hip) will practice in pads for the first time on Friday, Sept. 6. Texans coach Gary Kubiak said he'll know more about his status for the opener in the next couple of days. "He's come a long way," Kubiak said. "There's some progress that would have to be made to get him ready to go on Monday, but boy, has he made a lot of progress."
You may want to hold off on playing Reed in leagues that have individual players, because Kubiak stressed Reed would see limited duty if he is able to play. If you have a viable backup, keep Reed stashed for Week 1.
