Brooks Reed set to return for Texans

USA TODAY Sports

Linebacker says he feels 'really good' after missing time due to groin injury.

Houston Texans outside linebacker Brooks Reed told reporters after Thursday's practice that he is back to 100 percent and will play this week against the Minnesota Vikings, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Reed suffered a groin injury before the Texans' Thanksgiving Day game against Detroit. The injury eventually forced the Texans to remove him from that game, and Reed missed the team's next three games while recovering.

Reed is in his second season with the Texans after being drafted by Houston in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He played in all sixteen games of his rookie season, starting in eleven. Prior to his injury, Reed started in the Texans' first ten games, recording 23 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a forced fumble.

The Texans kick off against Adrian Peterson and the Vikings at noon Sunday. A victory would guarantee the Texans the top seed in the AFC Playoffs and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
