Found August 31, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
It seems like most of the news that’s come out since safety Ed Reed signed with the Houston Texans has been bad. However, yesterday’s report was certainly positive. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that the Texans plan on taking Reed off the physically unable to perform list and have him practice the opening week of the regular season. #Texans plan to take S Ed Reed (hip) off the PUP list & have him practice opening week. Hoping to have a decision on Week 1 early next week — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 30, 2013 Rapoport adds that Houston hopes to have a decision on Reed’s status for Week 1 early next week. Just because Reed is being activated to Houston’s 53-man roster doesn’t mean he’s guaranteed to play Week 1. What it would mean is that the Reed will not have to wait until Week 7 to be activated from the PUP list, which would be the case if he remains on it into the regular season. When the Texans signed Reed as a free agent from the Baltimore Ravens this offseason, the team hoped he would sure-up their secondary and add another veteran presence to their defense. His lingering hip ailment has clouded his availability, but the team should know more of his status soon. Head coach Greg Kubiak told reporters that Houston is expecting a quick decision “Monday or Tuesday.” "We're hoping to do some field drills Monday and Tuesday with our extra days with him, with (head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan)," Kubiak said. "We'll probably make a quick decision early in the week, Monday or Tuesday, on his availability for San Diego. We're sitting here hoping and we'll see how that goes."

NFL 2013 Season Prediction: AFC South

On my last stop in the AFC, I am making my predictions for the AFC South. Two years ago, this was a runaway division for the Houston Texans. Not so much any more. QB Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts brought a resurgent nemesis to the Texans last season. I give the nod to the Texans as having what I consider to be the best defense in the AFC but the offense is in question. RB...
