Ed Reed says he has a shoulder injury, injury report says otherwise


The Bills may not be the only team who has omitted a high-profile defensive player from the injury report.

Ravens safety Ed Reed told 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore (via that he has a torn labrum in his shoulder, and that the injury may be negatively affecting his play.

But Reed, who didn’t say when the injury occurred, isn’t listed on the injury report.  This year, he appeared on the list only in Week Two, with a thigh injury.

Technically, the admission is enough to get the league office to investigate.  Usually, however, Park Avenue doesn’t poke its nose into the situation until the injured player who hasn’t appeared on the injury report blabs about it at least twice.

    Raveator can you say karma? All that crap you talk is coming back at you. Try positive for positive things. Joker..

    Ed reed has been a walking injury report for the last few years. Can’t blame the ravens for taking the “what isn’t injured” approach at this point.

    Save some time and just list the Ravens that are NOT currently injured.

    These guys are dropping like flies.

    Just the Raven way…

    I love watching me some Ed Reed!!! Ever since the “U” I loved him as a football fan. How could you not???

    That team was STACKED!!! Reed, RIP Taylor, Vilma, Gore, Mcgahee, Portis, Andre Johnson, Shockey, & more NFL household names!!!!

    Get well ED!!!

    That’s sad and sorry to hear that Ed, but the real problem in the NFL is with who ever set the game times for this weeks schedule! Are you kidding me eight 1:00 games and only two 4:00 games? That is just dumb and stupid.

    I feel a new memo from Rog coming on about teams not reporting injured players.

    Ed Reed + Shoulder Injury = Oxymoron

  9. whytryagainstme says: Oct 18, 2012 12:26 AM

    Ed is a warrior. He’s been playing at a high level with injuries since 2006. I’m used to this by now. No need to worry about Ed, Ravens have other concerns to worry about.

  10. badintent says: Oct 18, 2012 12:41 AM

    Yo Goodell, he’s also got jock itch and hemorrhoids stick ya nose in and have a whiff ! Then fine him $5000 for the crabs too.

    The Ravens forgot to list all the leg injuries to their defensive players. They got slow in a hurry.

  12. tigershark49 says: Oct 18, 2012 12:53 AM

    Excuses, excuses…

  13. eventhorizon04 says: Oct 18, 2012 2:25 AM

    Never understood the fascination of injury reports. Either a player is healthy enough to play, or not.

    Bill Belichick lists 1/3 of his roster as “questionable” every week on his injury report, and nobody calls him out on it.

  14. randallflagg52 says: Oct 18, 2012 2:50 AM

    Well he’s still playing thru the injury, unlike that pansy in pittsburgh who does shampoo commercials.

  15. chademer07 says: Oct 18, 2012 3:18 AM

    You can play football well with a torn labrum, unless you’re throwing it shouldn’t really affect your play that much. I played baseball with the same injury (MRI was not pretty) but you can play through it much easier than with leg issues. I feel bad for all those injuries on the Balt D but a torn labrum is definitely not a death sentence.

  16. vuudu says: Oct 18, 2012 4:08 AM

    Mike, are you insinuating that my Ravens are like the Patriots? Never, Ravens do not engage in clandestine activities.
    Ed Reed misremembered that it was his thigh and not his shoulder. Nothing to see here, lets move on.

  17. phreakin says: Oct 18, 2012 5:25 AM

    What a silly “mistake”. Doesn’t Reed want a new deal too?

    Nest is en fuego. Ive never been more optimistic at 2-3.. heck i’ll go as far to say im down right giddy!!! Steelers have a stranglehold on the afcn. And time will reveal that! Im lovin it!!!

  20. theageofquarrel says: Oct 18, 2012 6:35 AM

    Who really cares about the Ravens anyhow? All they do is run their mouths and never make it to the Show. Their fans also run their mouths too about how great their front office is and only have 1 Championship to show for it and that was 12 YEARS AGO.

  22. protagoras111 says: Oct 18, 2012 7:29 AM

    The reason it was not reported is that his labrum is actually in good condition compared to other men in his age group.

  23. scott28078 says: Oct 18, 2012 7:29 AM

    He’s just making an excuse why he isn’t making tackles – that’s all!

  24. ravenator says: Oct 18, 2012 7:33 AM

    Funny what being 5-1 will do for the message boards. Scrolling through, I found almost all of you are haters. Unless your team is the Texans, your record is atrocious.

  25. sudz28 says: Oct 18, 2012 8:24 AM

    I also don’t get the injury report… supposedly it’s so that Vegas has proper info for people betting, but why does the NFL cow-tow to the gambling crowd anyway? It’s not like they’re needed to make the sport interesting. Get rid of the injury report altogether. Non-issue in my book.

  26. greymares says: Oct 18, 2012 8:31 AM

    He’s the dirtiest player in the history of the game. he can’t get hurt bad enough to suit me.

  27. hmink96 says: Oct 18, 2012 8:39 AM

    Its funny how players all over the league are playing hurt, and not disclosing every nagging pain, but somehow its “karma” to the ravens. and for so many people to hate and dont care about the ravens… you guys really do spend a lot of time talking about them.

  28. sixlombardisinyourface says: Oct 18, 2012 8:41 AM

    And old age rears it’s ugly head again in Nevermore….now how many healthy veterans remain on the swiss cheese defense ? Opposing quarterbacks are salivating at the chance to torch this deteriorating crumbling unit as the league watches it fall apart piece by piece, day by day. And the pressure proportionally increases on Flappo and RiceCake.

  29. flaccodelic says: Oct 18, 2012 8:41 AM

    As a Ravens fan I truly believe that neither Joe Flacco nor Ed Reed should be allowed to speak to the media in any capacity. Nothing good ever comes of it.

  30. whodeytn says: Oct 18, 2012 9:07 AM

    You losers are missing the point of the article.

  31. thebigtexas says: Oct 18, 2012 9:29 AM

    This is a non-issue.

    I have a partially torn labrum in my shoulder, and have had it for over 5 years.

    Now I know I’m not a professional athlete, but I’m still a pretty active guy. The only thing it has hindered me with is I can’t hit a flat serve in tennis anymore (but can still hit slice and kicks), and I can’t maybe throw a runner out from left field if they were tagging and trying to go home. But I certainly can still play tennis or go play catch. Most sports movements are still plenty do-able at a high level with this type of injury.

    As long as Ed Reed doesn’t try and become a quarterback, a torn labrum in his shoulder should be no problem.

    The only thing the Steelers own at the moment is a losing record, third place in the division and an insufferable fanbase.

  33. ravenator says: Oct 18, 2012 11:04 AM

    typical steelerownyou fan is giddy to be a losing team, helllooooo mcflyyy

  34. dontstabmeray says: Oct 18, 2012 11:31 AM

    Wow…will the ravens have enough bodies to even play a game? I seem to remember all these Ravens posters getting excited when a lot of Steelers got injured recently. Guess karma is a b*&^%
