Ed Reed a game-time decision for Houston Texans

Ed Reed's status for Sunday's game versus the Tennessee Titans hasn't changed much from the Houston Texans' season opener.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak confirmed that Shiloh Keo will make his second consecutive start, leaving Reed as a game-time decision to come off the bench.

The veteran safety said Thursday that he's still breaking up scar tissue in his surgically repaired hip.

"I want to play, but I've got to be smart," Reed said, via the Houston Chronicle. "I'm a team player, and I'll do whatever my coaches want me to do."

It sounds like his return might be another week away.
