Brooks Reed
Aug 6: Reed will start at outside linebacker in Saturday's preseason opener against the Cardinals, the Texans' official site reports. Reed, who has been working out at both inside and outside linebacker, will open preseason as the starting strong-side backer. The Texans are pretty deep at outside linebacker with Reed, Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus all expected to see action this season.

Jul 27: Reed practiced at outside linebacker Saturday, CSN Houston reports. While Reed prepped all offseason at inside linebacker, when training camp opened he was at the familiar outside spot. He'll be ready to play both positions, but defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's preference appears to have Reed play outside.

May 12: Reed is preparing to shift to inside linebacker this season, the Houston Chronicle reports. The early line has first-round draft pick Jadeveon Clowney seeing a lot of action at outside linebacker, the position where Reed has spent most of his time the last three years with the Texans. The Texans have been talking about moving Reed inside ever since last year's offseason, but linebacker selections in the 2013 draft flamed out, so he stayed put. With Whitney Mercilus on board and Clowney coming, there's a better chance in 2014 that Reed moves inside, where we presume there will be less sack opportunities.
