Houston Texans Should Be Concerned Over Ed Reed’s Recent Hip Surgery

+Read full article

(Mark J. Rebilas/USA Today Sports)

Last week, one of the biggest stories from the Houston Texans involved one of the team’s newest members in Ed Reed and how the safety recently had hip surgery–which is the last thing they want to hear at this point in the offseason. While Reed claims he should be healthy enough in time for the start of training camp, the Texans have every reason in the world to be concerned about their safety.

For starters, it’s never a good sign when a player the age of Reed has surgery at this point in his career and the fact that he’s already near the end of his career is never a good sign. Over the last couple of years, Reed’s name has been thrown in the mix of possible retirement, but he still appears to have a good year or two left in him.

Of course, if this surgery takes longer to recover from–things could quickly change for Reed.

Unfortunately, hip surgery is the type injury players need to be extremely careful about and it will be interesting to see how the next couple of months go during Reed’s recovery process. After reaching the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, expectations are high for Houston heading into the 2013 season and their best chance of competing with the best in the AFC is to have a steller defense.

Reed has proven to be an effective leader in the past–so let’s hope for the Texans sake he can recover in no time and be ready in time for the regular season.

Texans Actually Tried J.J. Watt At QB

There's something to be said for pulling out all the stops and using every trick play in the book to win a playoff game, but bringing in J.J. Watt to play quarterback in the wildcat formation was probably a giveaway that he would be running the ball.
