According to Head Coach Gary Kubiak, Houston Texans safety Ed Reed had a procedure done on his hip to address a labral tear suffered during the 2012 season. The recovery will keep him out until the start of training camp and he is expected to make a full recovery.
This is already is the first medical issue for Reed, and hopefully the last for some time. Reed played with the labral tear the entire 2012 season and playoffs for the Baltimore Ravens and he has not missed a start the past two seasons.
Reed was the Texans biggest off-season acquisition after he signed a three-year $15 million deal with Houston. Reed is ready to start his 12th season in the NFL and his first with the Texans.
