Default Re: Ed Reed may miss games now

I've been saying week 3 all along. He's close, but they are going to play it conservative which I think is prudent in his case. Maybe we will see him get his feet wet in week 2, who knows. But I think it's week 3 when he starts (just a guess)

Who's "Brook"?...and what position does he play? When did we sign him? See nothing on the transaction ledger even mentioning a "Brook", cut, signed, waived...nothing.

Please, do tell.

What happened to Billick and others insisting "This is just Ed being Ed"? We must all become realistic as the road comes closer to the end than to the beginning, things eventually change, parts start falling of, and are much more difficult to repair if they can be repaired at all. No one can deny that Reed is still a tenacious trooper, but Billick may be still remembering THIS Ed Reed:

It is, was and always will be Ed being Ed. So what if he sits the first game. I firmly believe its Kubiak/Smith/Wade that would prefer him to sit. No way he sits against the Ravens though

I think he's healthy enough to play & if this were the Ravens, he'd probably play. But since this is new to Reed, new to Jjo, new to Kj I would have been surprised if he played with just one week of practice.

I said the same thing about Iverson, it's not that we think he needs practice, but the guys around him have got to "acclimate" to him & he's got to get to know his teammates.

I thought that I heard some talking head on the radio say that Ed has an incentive if he plays in the first game. Is there a monetary clause in his contract for suiting up for game one, or did I misunderstand their comment?

I maintain that I think he'll play. I think he'll see a few snaps throughout. Maybe 25-30.

if he plays anywhere near that I will be estatic. Same with Posey and Cush. I also hope Newton and Wade Smith look healthier.

Kubiak stated today that Wade Smith practiced and looked good. Stated they were still monitoring Reed

More "useful" information........


Ed Reed possible for Chargers, but not probable

Posted on September 5, 2013 at 1:42 pm by Dale Robertson

Quote:
Gary Kubiak insisted that free safety Ed Reed has made a lot of progress since starting to work with the team for the first time Monday, but he didn’t sound confident that the former Baltimore Raven will be able to play against San Diego.

“He’s come a long way, guys,” Kubiak said. “But there’s some progress that would (still) have to be made as far getting him ready to go on Monday. I don’t want to say it can’t happen because it’s been such good progress. We’ll see day-to-day right now.”

After getting into the mix on Monday and Tuesday, Reed “participated on a limited basis” in Thursday’s workout as the Texans began putting in their game plan for the Chargers and Kubiak said Reed will be in full pads Friday.

“We’ll see how he responds to that,” Kubiak said. “But there has been great progress.”

Its kind of hard to see anything from that since he was working purely on technique, but I'd say it's 50/50 right now. Honestly I'd prefer he sit and make his debut at home next week. But if he's ready to go then he's ready to go. Getting him reps in obvious passing situations wouldn't be a bad idea.

Adam Schefter has reported that $1 Million in Reed's 2013 compensation is in the form of a per game incentive - meaning he gets $62,500 for every game he plays in.

Yeah, he'll definitely be back by next week then. No way he's leaving 125 grand on the table.
