Now graying and gimpy, when will Texans free safety Ed Reed launch in the Space City?

Houston didn’t pay Ed Reed to watch from the sideline.

After visiting a rehab specialist for the second time in a week Monday, Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak says “things are going really, really good” with free safety Ed Reed.

Inking a three-year contract worth $15 million to become a Texan, the 34-year-old Reed blindsided Houston and underwent minor hip surgery in March to repair a small labral tear.

Signed by Texans general manager Rick Smith to replace Glover Quin in the secondary, it’s unlikely Reed will be ready to compete against the Chargers in San Diego on September 9.

Removed from an outstanding 12-4 season in the AFC South, a healthy Reed would bolster Houston’s defense and improve the squad’s overall psyche.

Unfortunately, aging and trying to mend in the summertime, the future Hall of Famer’s addition looks increasingly suspect.

An eight-time All-Pro selection who was voted a member of the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, Reed is one of the premier defenders in league history.

Nevertheless, now graying and gimpy, don’t expect Ed Reed to launch until at least September 15 when the Tennessee Titans travel to “Space City.”
