The Ed Reed injury watch is over now. The Houston Texans safety is not expected to play tonight against our San Diego Chargers. That will give a little more relief for Philip Rivers to go over the top to his receivers.

Reed is one of the best ball hawks in the game, I don’t care how old he is.

Reed sitting on the sideline is a much better spot for us to see him than on the field. Shiloh Keo is the next man listed on the Texans depth chart. Rookie D.J. Swearinger also could see some action on defense.

The Chargers will have to protect the football against the Texans defense. We don’t need to give them any extra possessions and we need to put 7s on that scoreboard.
