The Texans have lost a very productive rookie in their secondary.
Justin Reid — the brother of Panthers safety Eric Reid — will not return to the wild-card game against the Colts after suffering a ribs injury.

Reid suffered the injury in the first half when he knocked the ball loose from Colts tight end Eric Ebron in the end zone.
The rookie out of Stanford went down on the play and was taken out to be evaluated.
He would never return.
Reid played in all 16 games during his rookie year and started in 12. He tallied three interceptions and returned one for a touchdown.
The Texans trailed the Colts 21-0 at halftime on Saturday.
