Texans hoping Reed will be ready for opening day

Houston Texans Free Safety Ed Reed is hoping that his recovery form arthroscopic hip surgery will be complete by the time the Texans take on the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium September 9th.

“With Ed, we’re working the rehab process and continuing what he’s been doing in Atlanta and setting our game plan from now until training camp,” Coach Gary Kubiak said recently. “They (team doctors) tell me he’s coming along fine. It’s just a matter of continuing the rehab process, and, obviously, we’ve got a target date we’re shooting for.”

The Texans 1st round draft selection, DeAndre Hopkins has impressed his coaches and teammates as well as the NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah who listed Hopkins as one of the top three rookies to make an immediate impact.

For the past 10 seasons, Andre Johnson has been as productive as just about any wide receiver in the NFL. He’s caught more than 800 balls and eclipsed 11,000 receiving yards. That’s quite impressive, considering he’s never had a legitimate No. 2 wideout to keep opposing defenses honest. Enter Hopkins. The former Clemson receiver broke the ACC’s single-season record for receiving touchdowns with 18 last fall and his combination of short-area quickness and ball skills will be a welcome addition to the Texans’ passing attack. He should start right away and post 60-plus catches during his rookie campaign.
