Concussion now gone, wrist is the issue for David Reed

Ravens rookie wide receiver/kickoff returner David Reed suffered a concussion and a wrist injury two weeks ago against the Saints, and he was forced to sit out of last Sunday's game against the Browns as a result.

After having another week to recover, Reed says that his concussion has completely cleared, but that the wrist injury is what's slowing him at this point.

"I feel good. My concussion is gone," Reed said. "All my symptoms are gone. I feel good.

"I've got another little something too which is bothering me. The wrist. We'll just see how it goes. See what the coaches think."

Reed said he injured the wrist on a kickoff return against New Orleans when his hand got folded up under the ball as he was tackled. He spent time after practice today catching kickoffs with special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg by his side. He said that was done just to see where he's at health-wise at this point.

He says he hopes to play this Sunday against the Bengals, but the coaches might opt to have him sit out another week.

Regardless of what happens this weekend, Reed is confident he'll be ready for the playoffs.

"Oh yeah. I've got to be ready for the playoffs," Reed said. "This week, I don't know. It's all up to the coaches."
