Harbaugh won't rule out Ed Reed for Week One; Cody undergoes surgery

The Ravens have until Saturday to decide whether to place Ed Reed on the reserve/PUP list, knocking him out for the first six weeks of the season.

Signs point towards Reed remaining on the active roster, though.  Ravens coach John Harbaugh won’t even rule him out of playing in Week One against the Rex Ryan All-Stars.

“The determining factor is going to be what’s best for his career
long-term and what’s best for him to play at the level he’s accustomed
to playing,” Harbaugh said.

It sounds like Reed is pushing to play sooner than later.  The safety spoke with Harbaugh, G.M. Ozzie Newsome, and his coaches at length on Monday about returning.  We’d think the Ravens won’t place Reed on PUP if there’s any chance he could play in the first four games, much less Week One.

With one star returning, the Ravens revealed Tuesday that a key rookie reserve will miss some time.  Terrence “Mount” Cody had surgery last week to repair the meniscus in his knee.  He’ll miss two weeks and is questionable for the opener.

“He had a little bit of a tear in his lateral meniscus and had a loose body floating around,” Harbaugh said on Tuesday.

Insert Cody eating someone joke here.  Or a joke about Cody’s loose body. Either one works.

  1. There is a belief that Reed is further along in his recovery than he has led the media and the Ravens to believe. That whole “35%” crap was to get out of training camp. Reed doesnt like Harbaugh’s camp because its much harder than Billick’s camp cream puff that he was used to.

  2. Okay, I’ll play.
    The loose body floating around in Cody’s knee was Rhode Island.

  3. Terrence “Mount” Cody had surgery last week to repair the ……… large, gaping hole in his face that swallows everything in its path.

  4. The loose body us usually a dead hooker found between the mattress and the box springs in a room at the Excalibur in Vegas.

  5. Where’s Kaz and his unbiased comments… I’m going to guess it’ll be something along the lines of “If the Benglas drafted Cody and this happened they would get slammed but since the Super Bowl Champion Ravens did it, is ok”
    Dude, you suck.

  6. Someone beat me to the ‘knee blowing out under the hundreds of pounds of fat’ joke. Oh well, There’s always Fatbert Fatsworthfat to make fun of.

  7. The loose body was Andre Smith. However, the tear occurred as a result of severe swelling of the wallet – so I doubt either cares about Florio’s bad humor.

  8. @steelfan
    I beg to differ Reed had 8 picks 2 years ago after the james harrison hit, so if harrison wants he can keep acting like a jerk and trying to run over quarterbacks when they’re already on the ground.

  9. You can crack on this guy for being overweight but dude is sickkkk and if he can stay healthy he’ll be a force to reckon with for a long time. If the Ravens can keep him and Ngata together you’re running game will vaporize.
