He was on the practice field today and had a good practice. Texans head coach Gary Kubiak says that he will be a “gametime decision. He had another good practice today. He’s come a long way. I can’t say he won’t play.”
Can’t rule him out. I would rather him sit out the game and deal with a different safety in their secondary.
Philip Rivers is looking to improve on his performance and cut down on interceptions. Having a ball hawk like Reed in the secondary will make things a little more difficult for him to complete some of those passes.
OR… Ed Reed could be a step slow because he is an old man. We did see what old man Manning did last night. Different positions, but you don’t count the old men out.
