According to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain, safety Ed Reed will make his season debut today against the Baltimore Ravens. His play count will be monitored but this is a good sign for a defense that has been waiting on Reed since he signed as a free agent. With Reed starting, Shiloh Keo will be filling in spots to relieve Reed when necessary.
Reed coming back for the Texans is an interesting development for the game against the Ravens.
