Reid (ribs) is scheduled for surgery on his wrist this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle report
Reid missed the second half of a playoff loss to Indianapolis while nursing a rib injury, but it now appears his wrist is a bigger concern for the offseason. The 2018 third-round pick started 12 of 16 games as a rookie, piling up 88 tackles (70 solo), 10 passes defensed, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and one touchdown. Reid should make a full recovery before training camp and appears to be locked in as a starting safety.
Reid (ribs) was ruled out for Saturday's wild-card game against Indianapolis.
Reid sustained the injury during the first half and was originally designated questionable to return. Andre Hal is set to see an increased role at safety alongside Tyrann Mathieu.
Reid is questionable to return to Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts with a rib injury.
Reid suffered the injury in the middle of the second quarter and received the questionable designation after being examined at halftime. Andre Hal should see increased snaps at safety as long as Reid remains sidelined.
Reid had a poor tackling day in the 32-30 loss to Philadelphia in Week 16, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Reid has been a sound tackler throughout much of his rookie season, tying for seventh among safeties in tackling efficiency (first among rookies), per Pro Football Focus. However, against the Eagles, Reid failed to lock up Darren Sproles at the goal line on a touchdown catch, then later missed Alshon Jeffrey on a 52-yard reception. Coach Bill O'Brien addressed the rookie's technique on the missed tackles, but noted it was correctable. Reid ranks fifth on the Texans with 83 combined tackles and tied for second with 68 solo.
Reid had four tackles (three solo), two passes defensed and forced a fumble in Sunday's 29-13 win over Cleveland.
Reid's hustle play, when he chased down Cleveland's Antonio Callaway and stripped the ball just before Callaway reached the end zone, resulted in a turnover. It was the fourth time in the last five games he's had a hand in a turnover, including a pick-six Week 11 against Washington. The rookie used injuries to others in secondary to get increased playing time and continues to see a significant amount of snaps after the injured players returned.
