HOUSTON – Texans safety Justin Reid will play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after being kept out of Houston’s game in Week 12 for disciplinary reasons, head coach David Culley said Wednesday.
Reid was suspended for the game against the New York Jets after challenging Culley’s coaching at a team meeting, team sources told ESPN. On Monday, Culley said his interaction with Reid “was not just a disagreement. It has something to do with our rules and our standards.”
Culley and Reid met Monday afternoon to discuss the situation.
“We’re moving forward,” Culley said Wednesday. “Back to business as usual.”
Sunday was not the first time Culley has kept players out for disciplinary reasons. Earlier in the season, linebacker Zach Cunningham and cornerback Desmond King II were put on the bench in similar situations.
On Monday, Culley said the situation with Reid “was not a distraction anymore” for the team.
“We took care of it,” Culley said. “When those things happen, you take care of it and you move on. That was what we did in this situation.”
Reid has two interceptions, a forced fumble and four passes defended this season. The 2018 election in the third round is in the final season of his rookie contract.
