Report: Brooks Reed Out For a Month

Brooks Reed

According to NFL Network’s Albert Breer,



This is a big blow for a thin outside linebacker position group and it looks like rookie Whitney Mercilus will replace Reed in the starting lineup. Connor Barwin, Bryan Braman, Jesse Nading and Mercilus are the healthy outside linebackers on the current roster. It will be interesting to see if the Texans look elsewhere for help or promote rookie Delano Johnson from the practice squad.

Stay tuned for further developments on Reed’s injury.
