Injury update: Ed Reed updates condition

HOUSTON -- I got a chance to speak with Houston Texans safety Ed Reed for the first time since training camp on Friday.

Reed, who was limited in practice, gave a pretty thorough update on his condition, explaining he's still working through some scar tissue and he also explained what exactly those injections he got in Vail, Colo., were. As Reed put it, the injections take two weeks to really kick in, and he'll hit that two-week mark on Monday.

I'm going to check in with our resident medical expert Stephania Bell to try and better explain what Reed's injections were. More on that later.

Some good news for the Texans on their latest injury report: left guard Wade Smith went from limited to full participant. I'd bet Smith is listed as probable on tomorrow's final injury report.
