Ravens S Ed Reed Wins Suspension Appeal; Will Play Sunday

Ed Reed won’t be suspended after all.

The veteran safety won his appeal of the one-game suspension that the NFL initially handed down for violating the league’s player safety rules. Instead of the one-game suspension without pay, which would have included forfeiting a $423,529 game check, Reed will now be fined $50,000 and serve no suspension.

The appeal was heard by former NFL defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell, who was appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association to be an arbitrator in such cases. Reed, Newsome, Head Coach John Harbaugh and President Dick Cass participated in the appeals process.
