Some interesting news broke yesterday as reported by the Baltimore Sun in regards to Ed Reed’s return for the 2010 season.
Ed Reed probably won’t be on the field for this weekend’s minicamp, but it has nothing to do with retirement.
The Ravens’ Pro Bowl safety underwent a “procedure” in his hip area this offseason, two league sources confirmed to The Sun. Ravens officials wouldn’t confirm whether Reed had surgery.
Reed missed four games in December because of a hip injury. He returned to play the regular-season finale at Oakland and two playoff games, where he made two interceptions.
It isn’t often that a surgery or procedure is considered good news but in this case it means Reed is preparing to play this season.
There has been a ton of speculation surrounding Reed’s status for next year and I think that this is at least a sign that he plans to be out there and to be as physically healthy as he can be to give it his best effort.
