Texans release Ed Reed

As if the answer to a 2-7 season (thus far), the Houston Texans have decided to cut ties with their free agent coup, Ed Reed.  Reed, who signed a 3-year $15 million contract, he underwent labium surgery that kep out of uniform and off the field until week 3 of the season.  In the six games that followed, Reed has only collected 16 tackles.

“Certain situations, we just got outplayed and outcoached,” Reed told ESPN’s Tania Ganguli after Houston’s latest loss, a 27-24 setback in Arizona. “If you’re watching the game, it’s not no-brainers … Eventually, they’re going to figure out what you’re doing if you’re doing the same old things.”

The Texans face the 3-6 Oakland Raiders at home this weekend.  Great seats and tickets are still available.

Texans Kubiak out of hospital

In what has turned out to be an emotional week for the Houston Texans, there was a spot of bright news in a sea of dark.  Head Coach Gary Kubiak has been cleared and released from the hospital.

“I want to thank my family, the McNair family, the Texans organization, the doctors and staff at Houston Methodist Hospital and the entire Houston community for all the love and support we have received over the past three days.  I’ve been through an ordeal and my focus now is to get back to good health.  Doctors have told me I will make a full recovery but we have not determined when I will be cleared to return to the office. Again, thank you for the support and concern.”

The Texans also announced that free agent signee Ed Reed will not be starting this week.  Reed, one of the most sought after free agents this summer, has only recorded 14 tackles, zero pass defenses and zero forced turnovers.
