Texans S Ed Reed had hip surgery last week

Houston Texans safety Ed Reed missed nearly half the season three years ago while he was recovering from hip surgery and just last week was forced to go under the knife again. Reed had an arthroscopic surgery to repair a small labral tear in his hip. The procedure is described as minor and Reed is expected to be ready for training camp. The 34-year-old will be tutoring new rookie safety D.J. Swearinger, a second round pick out of South Carolina.

Fantasy Analysis:

Reed hasn't been much of an IDP option in recent years, but he can occasionally put up huge weeks in big play leagues since he is so productive once he intercepts a pass. Unless you're playing in a very deep IDP league, Reed shouldn't be on your radar and instead guys like J.J. Watt and maybe Glover Quin are more apt selections. The Texans brought back nearly all their starters on defense so that continuity should help them in 2013.
