Report: Ed Reed "Unlikely To Play" In Season Opener Against Chargers

No need to salute us, Ed. - Scott Halleran

While hardly a surprise to Texans fans, the reality of Shiloh Keo starting at safety in the season opener in San Diego in front of a national television audience is beginning to set in.

Jason La Canfora reports:

Ed Reed is unlikely to play in Houston's Monday night opener against the Chargers, according to a source with the Texans.

Reed's purported pledge to Andre Johnson that he'd be ready for Week 1 aside, this shouldn't be surprising to Texans fans. Coming off hip surgery, Reed just got back on the practice field a couple of days ago, so it stands to reason that he won't be ready on Monday night.

Get ready for Shiloh Keo, starting safety, in San Diego on Monday night.
