Ed Reed was recently was taken off the physically unable to perform list and has been practicing this week with his new Texans teammates, but will he be ready to make his season-debut Monday night in San Diego? Neither the Texans nor Reed have made an official announcement regarding his playing status, but if you ask his teammates, the former Ravens safety is looking good on the practice field at least. "I don't know how he's feeling but he's looking good out there," rookie DB A.J. Bouye said to the Houston Chronicle. "I'm just watching him, just learning stuff from him and how he takes practice and how he plays. It's good. It's a different type of atmosphere when he's out there you see him competing and everything, especially on the back end." Head coach Gary Kubiak has said Reed will make the final call as to whether he will play Monday against the Chargers. Veteran receiver Andre Johnson, who played a big role in the Texans landing Reed as a free agent in the offseason, thinks just seeing Reed on the field is a positive and that he feels that it is a sign the veteran safety will be ready to step on the field on Monday night for the team's regular-season opener. "Only Ed knows that," Johnson said. "I know he was real close to feeling well, just from talking to him. Just seeing him on the field is a positive. If he wasn't feeling well he wouldn't be out there. He knows when he'll be ready. Hopefully, it'll be for Monday night." Follow Shawn Ramsey on Twitter: @shawnpramsey
