Default Ed Reed may miss games now

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/n...r-season-games


Quote:
Ed Reed (hip surgery) admits he might not be ready for Week 1.
Reed's injury hoodwink keeps getting worse for the Texans. "I plan on being back for Week 1," Reed said Wednesday. "But as youíve known me for the longest time, Iím going to be smart about my injuries and make sure Iím there for the later part of the season when the team really needs me." Reed has gone from being ready for the start of camp, to potentially returning "midway through it" to not a guarantee for Week 1. Reed could still easily end up being ready for Week 1, but it's safe to say he would have never gotten his three-year, $15 million deal had the Texans known the true extent of his injury.

'eh, one big game changing play in the playoffs will make all if it worthwhile.

Hopefully some of his attitude and perspectives rub off on our secondary in the meantime.

I expect the next hip specialist called in to examine Reed will correctly diagnose and permanently fix the problem.

Defense looks like it'll be pretty bad except for JJ Watt. Question marks all around with the linebacker situation, Earl Mitchell at the NT is an issue for me, and Ed Reed's health is a big concern.

I don't know, necessarily, that it's safe to say that. Unless we're playing the New England Patriots week 1, it's possible we couldn't care less.

I'm sure the Texans are upset & probably feeling "violated" at this time. But we're not expecting Ed Reed to roam from sideline to sideline 20+ yards out game in & game out. We want him to bring some swagger & notoriety to our secondary & an extra half second for Jj Watt when it counts.

If the Texans had to chose between signing Ed Reed to $15M/3 years or Ed Reed retiring, I think they would have gone the same way. But still, they would have liked to have known all this before hand so they could work out their story, probably add a few stipulations to where Reed would do his rehab, that kind of stuff.

Default Re: Ed Reed may miss games now

You're right, we don't play NE until December 1. Though the important questions that we have no solid answers to now are:

1) Will he ever recover to the performance level that was expected when he was signed?

2) Will he re-injure his hip?

3) Will he suffer a new injury?

You may say that there is plenty of time for "recovery." But, the season is too long and there are too many important and tough games along the way between the beginning of the season and the playoffs to feel too "secure" with our new acquisition. Hopeful maybe........secure no.

My point, was that signing him was not about having him available week 1. I'm only arguing the point about "safe to say" quote from the article.

Unless you're feeling confident that Wade's man love for Shilo Keo has waned...... I'd be a little bit worried.

Healthy Cushing & JJo, better in the pass rush rotation, Reed can be rotated inside. Mitchell >= Cody. Swearinger is already in nickle & dime and has great ball skills. If all we get out of Reed is commitment to coaching up the young guys, I'm optimistic.

Lechler will be an important upgrade, as well.

I think it comes down to the same thing it always does in the NFL (and life)...Risk/Reward ratio. In this situation there is an above "average" risk we will get substandard or no production from our FA safety. However there is a significant chance that we get a handful of game changing plays that can make the difference between being a superbowl champ or a 1 and done team. The cost of this is $5 million. Certainly we could have spent that money on a lower risk/lower reward proposition. But those guys can get hurt and be out for the season too. IMO, the Texans knew exactly what they were doing/getting. It remains to be seen if it will pay off or not. I think part of the reason there is excitement about Ed Reed is this represents a 180 degree change from what everyone expected Rick Smith to do based upon prior history, which would have dictated that he get another guy like Manning.
