Kick returner and wide receiver David Reed will be sidelined at least three weeks, with the possibility of Reed missing a maximum of six weeks due to an injury he suffered in his AC joint Sunday.
The news comes on the heels of a bitter 26-13 defeat Sunday at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. Reed was one of the few bright spots for the Ravens on Sunday, recording a 77-yard kickoff return towards the end of the second quarter.
Head Coach John Harbaugh believes Reed will be sidelined just the minimum three weeks:
“Probably three weeks, I would say,” Harbaugh said. “I don’t know. I’m not a doctor, but I play one in press conferences. That’s what it normally is.”
Reed’s injury comes in his first game of the season, as the second-year man was suspended for the Ravens’ week one game for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
With Reed out, look for punt returner/cornerback Lardarius Webb to run back kickoffs, but don’t be surprised to see undrafted rookie free agent Laquan Williams get a shot at some point.
