I just cannot even imagine.
Well the news is out... I tore my labrum before the season started and played the year with it. It was painful at times but still an easy decision to continue to play! I love my team, I love my teammates, I love this city, and I love to play. I will do anything to help us win! ✊— Justin Reid (@jreid_viii) January 22, 2020
Honestly I didn’t think I’d make it though the entire season. I prayed before every game and I thank god for watching over me and allowing to to play the entire season without fear.— Justin Reid (@jreid_viii) January 22, 2020
I’m looking forward to surgery and the road to recovery to dominate next season!
Dude, you dominated this year WITH A TORN LABRUM.
If you’ve never had a torn labrum, good for you, because it’s really painful. The labrum acts as a stabilizer for the shoulder joint. Depending on the severity of the injury, a torn labrum can lead to subluxation and even complete disclocation of the humeral head of the shoulder joint. There is nothing I’ve had remotely akin to the shoulder subluxating out of the joint, then audibly and grotesquely popping back in so loudly others around can hear it. Yep. /barfs
Texans safety Justin Reid played through a torn labrum in his shoulder throughout the season and will undergo offseason surgery, according to league sources. Reid was voted by his teammates during the season as the Ed Block Courage award winner for overcoming adversity— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) January 22, 2020
That Justin Reid played through this type of injury is utterly amazing to me. Reid is one of the best young safeties in the game today, and I cannot wait to see him play while healthy.
(For those of you who care about such silliness, Reid ranked 12th for safeties by ProFootballFocus with at least 50% of snaps, which outranked Tyrann Mathieu [16th]. This is 100% correct, for that comparison, at least.)
