HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- It was well-known throughout the season Texans safety Justin Reid dealt with a shoulder injury. 

The pain did not appear to keep him off the field, as Reid played every game except one due to a concussion. 

On Wednesday, Reid confirmed he suffered a torn labrum before the season and played through it.

"It was painful at times but still an easy decision to continue to play! I love my team, I love my teammates, I love this city, and I love to play," Reid tweeted Wednesday. "I will do anything to help us win!"

Reid is entering his third season since the Texans selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Stanford.

He's quickly become one of the leaders of the team both on the field and in the locker room.

In Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Reid stopped running back Leonard Fournette at the goal line to thwart a two-point conversion attempt that would've cost Houston the game.

Reid also had an interception against Jaguars quarterback Garner Minshew in London. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Reid had an interception on Jameis Winston and also recovered a fumble.

Unfortunately, the lasting image of Reid this season will be from the terrible play call that had him running on a fake punt in the AFC Divisional round loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
