While visiting the President at the White House with his former Ravens teammates, new Texans safety Ed Reed admitted to the Ravens' official team website that he could miss some games thanks to his injured hip. He had surgery for it after signing with Houston and needs up to three months of recovery time. "I plan on being back for Week 1," Reed said. "But as you've known me for the longest time, Im going to be smart about my injuries and make sure Im there for the later part of the season when the team really needs me."
The Houston Chronicle reports that Texans receiver DeVier Posey is closer than hes ever been to returning to participation. Posey suffered a torn Achilles in January and had surgery four and a half months ago. I should be out on the field next week doing drills and getting acclimated to the heat and getting my foot on that solid ground again, Posey said. Posey has attended OTAs while only being able to watch from the sidelines. Were making a decision on him at the end of camp because of the PUP and those type of things, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. Hes doing everything he can. Hes going to come back and hes going to play for us next year. How early is the question.
Arian Foster told FOXSports.com he would "more than likely" be ready for training camp after straining his calf in late May. Its just a small calf strain," he said of the injury. "News is dry in the offseason, so it made headlines."

ESPN reports that Jets receiver Stephen Hill has a lot of work to do heading into training camp. The report says Hill "followed a disappointing rookie year with a drop-filled minicamp." Hill has dealt with a knee injury this offseason, which could have contributed to his poor minicamp.
Jets receiver Santonio Holmes told the official team website the Lisfranc injury he was diagnosed with was a Grade 4, which is the most serious kind, meaning a muscle tear and joint separation in his mid-foot. Screws and a plate were removed in a follow-up surgery in March, but he said two screws will remain in his foot permanently. Holmes hopes to be ready for the first day of training camp, but that seems overly ambitious, considering he still isn't running and cutting.
In an interview with CBSSports.com, Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline said the addition of tight end Dustin Keller is big. Kelller signed as a free agent from the Jets this offseason. "His presence in the passing game is going to be huge," Hartline said. "You can see, kind of speaking hopefully for myself, were designing our offense through the passing game. Having a dynamic pass-catching tight end like Dustin Keller is important."
Bucs general manager Mark Dominik told NFL Network he expects cornerback Darrelle Revis to be ready for Week 1 against the Jets. Revis tore his ACL last September while playing for the Jets. "Fully confident," Dominik said. "He's in great shape right now. He's running full speed. He's cutting, he's doing all the things we wanted him to do from a training standpoint and a rehabilitation standpoint. We're going to keep him at our pace but the whole point is he'll walk out there the first day of training camp, he'll have pads on and he'll be ready for the Jets in Week 1. We're expecting that."
