Credited with six tackles and a quarterback hurry against the Ravens in his first professional start, Texans rookie outside linebacker Brooks Reed earned plaudits from his head coach. "He played very well," Gary Kubiak said. "He can get better, but he went in there and played in a big game in a tough spot to play and played very well. He played every darn play. That's impressive for a rookie. He bounced back and practiced good (Wednesday). We need him to play huge." Reed, it seems, is tougher to impress. "I thought I've played pretty good, but there's still a lot of things I can improve on - fundamental things," he said. "Obviously, pass rush could always have improvements." Source: Houston Chronicle

It’s no big surprise that the Texans ruled out wide receiver Andre Johnson for Sunday’s game against the Titans.
