This season just keeps getting worse and worse on the injury front.
It was announced today that Justin Reid will be sidelined for the rest of the 2020 season due to a hand injury suffered during Sunday’s Bears game.

Reid will finish the season 83 tackles, two sacks, and four passes defended while starting 13 games. With an already thin secondary, we could be seeing more street free agents signed.
With the Texans being mathematically eliminated from the NFL Playoffs and experiencing an injury scare with Deshaun Watson yesterday, maybe it’s time to bubble-wrap some of the cornerstone guys and look to 2021. Houston’s rookies should be receiving more time to figure out who should stick around in the coming rebuild.
At least Reid should wake up at some point in the offseason with a new head coach, coordinator, and general manager to lead everyone forward.
