S - HOU - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Texans S Justin Reid is out for the season due to a hand injury suffered in Week 14.
The Texans’ star safety finishes the year with 83 total tackles and two sacks. His year is now done, which is a big loss for an already struggling Texans defense.
Texans rookie safety Justin Reid led the team with 10 tackles (nine solo) and a fumble recovery in Sunday’s 19-17 win over the Broncos.
The 2018 third-rounder is quietly having a strong rookie season. He’s totaled 46 tackles, two interceptions, and one fumble recovery in nine games (five starts). He is becoming a solid IDP consideration as well. The Redskins are up next following the Week 10 bye.
Texans rookie safety Justin Reid recorded eight tackles (five solo) two passes defensed, and one interception in Thursday night’s win over the the Dolphins.
The second-quarter interception was his second of the season and career. He is enjoying a solid rookie season and has now played in 100 percent of the defensive snaps in three straight games. He has 37 total tackles on the year.
Justin Reid and Kareem Jackson were listed as co-starters on the Texans first unofficial depth chart.
It appears that Reid will get a chance to make an impact as a rookie and possibly earn the safety job next to Tyrann Mathieu going forward. This depth chart formatting could also potentially indicate a lot of three safety sets in Houston this year.
