Texans’ Justin Reid Done For Year

The season is over for Justin Reid. The Texans are set to place the safety on the injured reserve list with a hand injury, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets

It’s familiar territory for Reid, who has undergone surgery in each of the last two offseasons. Before the 2019 season, he went under the knife for a wrist injury. Last year, it was a torn labrum. It’s not immediately clear whether Reid will require surgery this time but, at minimum, he’ll need some time to rest and recover.

Reid’s season ends with 83 stops, two sacks, six tackles for a loss, and four quarterback hits. Despite the roadblocks, the former 2018 third-round pick from Stanford has quietly established himself as one of the game’s better young safeties. He’s also shown that he can play through the pain. Up until this year, Reid missed only regular season game with a concussion. Last year, he started in every one of the club’s other 15 games, picking up two interceptions to go along with 78 total tackles. He was also on the field for every defensive snap in both of the Texans’ postseason contests.

It was a rough Sunday for everyone in Houston as the Texans lost to the Bears, dropping their second straight game in lopsided fashion. They’ll wrap the season against the Colts, Bengals, and Titans before embarking on a pivotal offseason.
