HOUSTON (AP) - Texans safety Ed Reed isn't making any promises that he'll be ready to go Sept. 9 against San Diego.

Houston's biggest off-season acquisition spoke on Tuesday for the first time since he started training camp on the physically unable to perform list after surgery to repair a partly torn labrum on April 30.

The nine-time Pro Bowler says he's feeling better and: "I can tell you that it is close, but I can't say that it is the first game because I don't know."

Texans receiver Andre Johnson said last week that Reed told him he planned to play in Week 1. Reed joked a bit when asked about those comments on Tuesday, laughing and saying: "I guess I've got to do it. This is his team."
