We’ve heard of NFL payers gutting it out through injuries before, but Justin Reid’s situation takes it to a whole other level.
The Texans safety revealed on Wednesday that he played through a torn labrum this season.
Reid played in all but one game for Houston during the regular season, and he played in both of the team’s postseason games. Despite the injury, he finished second on the team in tackles (78) during the regular season.
How a player who does so much hitting on defense was able to make it through 17 games with that type of injury is astounding. He’ll now spend part of the offseason recovering from surgery to repair the damage in his shoulder.
