Ed Reed is coming off PUP. Kubiak said he'll make a decision about whether Reed will play early next week. #Texans

Do you really believe that means anything, and that he would have been put on the regular season PUP for ANY reason? Steroid injections so soon after a hip labrum tear surgery carries a bad connotation, either continued significant inflammation or arthritis in the hip (both associated with acute degeneration of soft and/or hard tissues). And the injections, although they mask pain..........they heal nothing. In fact they are more likely to destroy additional hip tissues (tendons, ligaments and cartilage)........with the player continuing to play without "feeling" the progressing damage until another major injury occurs. It is obvious the the Texans and Reed will hold back nothing to prove that their contract was not a mistake. Ultimately, we'll only see how it plays out after looking back over the entire course of the season.
