Houston Texans Injury News: Justin Reid To Have Wrist Surgery

Sticks and stones broke some bones.

Look at the photo on the article you just clicked on. Little dog, little dog, what do you see? I see Justin Reid smashing Eric Ebron at the goal line. I remember that play like it was three weeks ago. Reid’s hit saved a touchdown and left Reid crumpled in a heap like the clothes in my bedroom (not because I’m a slob, but because I’m an artist. I don’t even have a television in there). I think Reid was removed from the game after this play. I can’t really remember. The game was over by this point.

Look closer. What else do you see? I see a clubbed hand, a hardened mound of whatever they make casts out of. Five fingers metamorphosed into rock. This is how the Earth was created.

Reid smashed his hand at some point last season. He played with a cast on it to end the year. Recently, Reid had surgery, on the same hand I would guess. The Houston Chronicle just said he’s having it repaired like the bones are the brake pads on a squealing, wretched, used car, or a crack in the foundation, or a freezer that can’t make ice. Not like Justin Reid is an actual person with feelings who is having surgery to heal a hurting hand.

Expect more secret surgeries to come out. J.J. Watt had minor knee surgery. I’m sure Jadeveon Clowney will get scraped up once he his slapped with a franchise tag or signs a monstrous new contract, Johnathan Joseph probably will too, and hopefully we get some Will Fuller V ACL news soon. Someone send me Fuller’s email address so I can send him an E-Card about, UGH, Mondays, aren’t they the worst?

Anyways, get well soon, Justin.
