Reed said the injections he received in Vail take weeks to finish working. He said they'll be through the process by Monday. #Texans

Just like Watt still remembers the doubters from draft day, Ed Reed still has a USA Today story that said he was too small and slow. #Texans

Phillips gets asked about Cushing's rivalry with Watt. Reply: "Cush's got a rivalry with everybody." #Texans

I asked if Phillips is more inclined to listen to Reed's suggestions than other players. He said, Reed's are better. #Texans

Phillips says there have been a couple times that Ed Reed has made suggestions to the coaches and they've been good suggestions. #Texans

Phillips says Brian Cushing had his best practice today. He was surprised because he thought he'd be weighed down (by the money). #Texans

"I wouldn't have given him a shot early in the week. He's practiced more and more, feeling better. ...getting real close," Phillips #Texans

Wade Phillips was asked to compare Earl Campbell and Arian Foster. Says it's fun being on defense with both of them. #Texans

Oh also, Brennan Williams' microfracture surgery was on a different knee than his arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the summer. #Texans

Keshawn Martin will return kicks and punts. Danieal Manning will, too, once Ed Reed gets healthy. #Texans

DeVier Posey will play a lot of special teams and have a play count. Kubiak says DeAndre Hopkins is in a catch-up period right now. #Texans

Kubiak said Sharpton is "in the middle" of the concussion protocol. Not at the end of it yet. Not sure what number exactly. #Texans

Kubiak says Joe Mays had a really good practice today. Says he'll only get better as time goes on b/c he's still learning #Texans' defense.

Kubiak calls Reed's progress exciting to see. #Texans

Ed Reed practiced more today than yesterday Gary Kubiak says. Says he thinks there's a shot for Monday. #Texans

Kubiak excused Myers from Dallas to be w/his son for his first surgery. Called to check in before and after. #Texans http://espn.go.com/blog/houston-texa...r-texans-myers

Those Trench Life shirts Myers sold made $5,000 for Operation Smile , which helps children with clefts, during a 4-day presale. #Texans

Chris Myers' son Keane was born with bilateral clefts on his lip and palate. The family's journey with him: http://espn.go.com/blog/houston-texa...r-texans-myers #Texans

"It's kind of 50/50 right now honestly. I couldn't say if I'm going to play or I'm not gonna play." - #Texans Safety Ed Reed

Ed Reed said he hasn't been out practicing with the 1's. said he did for a play or two and joked all the players were talking. #texans

Ed Reed said he's been asking Keo about the defense. Said that Keo should be playing on this team. #texans

Reed said the goal is to be on the field Feb 2nd. Not Monday. #texans

Ed Reed said he's day 2 day. Said hell be a game time decision. Added his injections take 2 weeks to wear off. That would be Monday.

"Ed really is on top of everything we do." - Phillips on how ready Reed is with secondary. #Texans

DeAndre Hopkins will make his first #NFL start Monday. Since 2006, 5 of #Texans 7 1st round picks started every game their rookie season.

In terms of when Manning starts returning kicks, Kubiak said it will be related to when Ed Reed returns. #Texans

"Everybody wants to be Deion Sanders on the football field who plays CB. No one is going to tell you any other name other than Deion Sanders or they're lying." - #Texans CB Johnanthan Joseph
