Texans' Justin Reid: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (thumb) participated in OTAs and will be a key member of the Texans' secondary in 2021, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

Reid suffered a season-ending thumb injury in Week 14 of the 2020 campaign, but he is now back to full health. The fourth-year safety is entering the final season of his rookie contract and will be relied upon as a leader of the defensive unit after an offseason that featured plenty of turnover in Houston. Reid's passes defended and interceptions have dipped each year that he has been in the league, so he'll look to change that trend in 2021.

Texans' Justin Reid: Enters final year of deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (thumb) finished 2020 with 83 tackles, two sacks and three passes defensed.

Reid got caught up in the malaise of Houston's 30th-ranked defense before he suffered a season-ending thumb injury Week 14. He acknowledged missed tackles and overthinking in an interview with Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, but he turned it around Week 11 against New England. Pro Football Focus graded him 60th among safeties following a 2019 season when he graded ninth. Reid is expected to return for the final season of his four-year contract and is eligible to sign an extension.

Texans' Justin Reid: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans placed Reid (thumb) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Reid underwent surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb Tuesday, causing him to miss the remainder of the 2020 season. The Stanford product had a strong 2020 campaign, racking up 83 tackles (62 solo), two sacks and three pass breakups through 13 games. While Reid will hit the recovery trail, A.J. Moore and Lonnie Johnson are the top candidates to start at strong safety, while Jonathan Owens figures to play a role as well.

Texans' Justin Reid: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid will begin rehabbing soon and is expected to make a full recovery. The 2018 third-round pick will be placed on injured reserve soon. Moving forward, A.J. Moore and Lonnie Johnson are the top candidates to start at strong safety, while Jonathan Owens figures to play a role as well.

Texans' Justin Reid: Has thumb injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb in Sunday's loss to the Bears, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid's injury was initially reported as a hand injury, so this account provides more detail. He will be placed on injured reserve and eventually undergo surgery. The Texans are expected to replace Reid with a combination of Eric Murray, Lonnie Johnson and A.J. Moore.

Texans' Justin Reid: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a hand injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid injured his hand in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Bears. He was ultimately able to return to the contest, but it appears the issue is more serious than first expected. The 23-year-old will finish the 2020 campaign with 83 tackles (62 solo), two sacks and three passes defended. In his absence, A.J. Moore will be the prime candidate to replace him at strong safety.

Texans' Justin Reid: Returns from hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (hand) returned to Sunday's loss to the Bears, Mark Berman of KRIV Fox 26 News reports.

The 23-year-old exited during the first half with a hand injury, but he was able to retake the field after halftime. Reid finished the contest with four total tackles and one pass defensed.

Texans' Justin Reid: Logs second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid had eight tackles, a sack and two quarterback hits in Week 12's 41-25 win over the Lions.

Reid had gone his entire career without a sack, but the third-year safety posted sacks in each of the last two games. He also made a stop on a fourth-and-one fullback dive early in the fourth quarter. The stop on downs gave Houston the ball on the Detroit side of the field, and one play later, Deshaun Watson hooked up with Will Fuller for a 34-yard touchdown. Reid has 71 stops on the season and needs 18 more over the final five games to establish a new career high.

Texans' Justin Reid: Notches first career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid posted nine tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Patriots.

Reid took down Cam Newton in the fourth quarter to record the first sack of his career. The 2018 third-round pick also posted his highest tackle count since Week 2, putting together a solid fantasy day. Reid is averaging 6.3 tackles per game this season and is on pace to record 100 tackles for the first time in his career.

Texans' Justin Reid: Records six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid made six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jaguars.

Reid has been fairly consistent this season, recording either five or six tackles in four of five games this season. The only outlier was a 10-tackle outing Week 2 against the Ravens. His stats don't jump off the page, but Reid is steady and has played nearly every defensive snap this season.

Texans' Justin Reid: Double-digit tackler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid recorded 10 tackles, including one for a loss, in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.

Reid was one of three members of the defense to post double-digit tackles, an indication that the Texans had trouble stopping the run. It was the second straight week Houston got run over by an opponent. Reid has 15 tackles through two games, a pace that will establish a new career high for the safety.

Texans' Justin Reid: Officially cleared from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (shoulder) has been a full participant during training camp.

The 23-year-old underwent labrum surgery in January, and after his rehab process he appears fully healthy ahead of the 2020 season. Reid was a stud as the starting free safety last season, racking up 78 tackles (57 solo) and two interceptions across 15 games. Now healthy, he'll continue to be deployed as the team's starting free safety.

Texans' Justin Reid: Progressing in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid said his shoulder is "doing great" as he continues rehab work from labrum surgery in January, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 23-year-old played through the torn labrum down the stretch, but he required offseason surgery to repair the injury. It's unclear when exactly Reid is expected to be fully healthy, though there's been no indication thus far he's in danger of missing the start of training camp.

Texans' Justin Reid: Gets out of sling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from surgery on a torn labrum, which he underwent earlier in the offseason, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid is no longer wearing a sling to support his shoulder. It's not yet clear whether he'll be ready to participate when the Texans' offseason program begins to gear up, however.

Texans' Justin Reid: Getting shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid played through a torn labrum in his shoulder during the latter half of the 2020 campaign and will require offseason surgery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid was removed from the Texans' Week 11 game on account of a shoulder issue, so that's likely when the injury was sustained. The second-year safety sat out in Week 12, but he barely missed a snap in the final five regular-season contests and played every down in the postseason. There's no definitive timeline for Reid's return to full activity, but the surgery shouldn't affect his status for the start of the 2020 season.

Texans' Justin Reid: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid, who missed Thursday's win over the Colts, returned to practice Monday and has cleared the league's concussion protocol, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid is expected to avoid a multi-game absence, as the Texans' starting strong safety is now on track to be available for an upcoming Sunday night matchup against the Patriots. Reid has already surpassed the 50-tackle mark this season, but he's recorded just two passes defensed and one interception through 10 contests.

November 20, 2019 04:44 PM
Texans' Justin Reid: Officially out vs. Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (concussion/shoulder) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Colts.

Reid suffered both a concussion and a shoulder injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens, and he was unable to recover from the injuries on a short week. Mike Adams (concussion) is also out, so Tashaun Gipson (back) -- who is questionable -- will start at safety if he's active with either A.J. Moore or Jahleel Addae lining up on the opposite side.

Texans' Justin Reid: Unlikely to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (concussion) likely will miss Thursday night's contest against the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Faced with a short week, Reid was always going to be challenged in his quest to pass league protocol before Thursday. At this point, it seems unlikely he'll take the field for what figures to be a high stakes divisional matchup. A.J. Moore figures to get the start in Reid's spot.

Texans' Justin Reid: Diagnosed with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid was diagnosed with a concussion after leaving Sunday's game against the Ravens, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reid was ruled out of Sunday's contest with a shoulder injury, but it appears he is dealing with a head injury as well. He will need to clear the league's concussion protocol in order to take the field in Week 12.

November 17, 2019 03:24 PM
Texans' Justin Reid: Done for remainder of Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid (shoulder) will not return to Sunday's game against the Ravens.

It's unclear how Reid suffered the injury, but he was forced to leave the game late in the third quarter. Now that he's officially done for the day, look for A.J. Moore to take over at the strong safety position.
