That’s why we didn’t buy the claim that Steven Jackson’s surgery was “minor.” He hoped to avoid it, but eventually was forced to get the procedure in April.
With that in mind, the news from the Baltimore Sun that Ed Reed underwent a “procedure” in his hip area is actually good news for Ravens fans. (We’re not sure why it’s called a procedure and not a surgery, but it doesn’t really matter.)
There wasn’t much doubt Reed was returning in 2010, but his decision to undergo surgery now shows he’s making the necessary plans to return to the field.
Reed won’t be on the field, however, for this weekend’s minicamp. He missed four games last year with a hip injury.
