Ed Reed Could Miss The Start Of The Season

Comments about Reed’s age can’t help but draw attention to the fact that he’s recovering from hip surgery that Texans owner Bob McNair said may keep him out for the first couple of weeks of training camp. Reed was asked about his recovery on Wednesday and said he planned to be on the field for the start of the regular season, but cautioned he wouldn’t risk further injury to get back on the field for that game.

“I plan on being back for Week 1,” Reed said, via the Ravens website. “But as you’ve known me for the longest time, I’m going to be smart about my injuries and make sure I’m there for the later part of the season when the team really needs me.”
