& he probably could have. But our doctors & trainers didn't like what they saw, they did their due diligence to get to the bottom of the issue & determined the best course of action was surgery.
Reed didn't tell the Texans about his hip and the Texans doctors foolishly didn't run a MRA despite a previous injury to Reeds other hip. Looks like Dr. Lowe and crew screwed the pooch on another one. (Not that I blame Reed for not being truthful.)
Someday the Texans Dr.'s are going to be called out for either being the Texans Lackey, or inept at their jobs. With that said, hopefully Reed will get well and become an upgrade over Quin.
