Reed will play Sunday versus Chiefs

Despite not knowing the whereabouts of his younger brother Brian, who is still missing after jumping into the Mississippi River to elude police, Ed Reed will play in Sunday's playoff game against the Chiefs.

I've been told that the Ravens safety is on the team's charter flight to Kansas City, and plans to suit up on Sunday.

ESPN's Rachel Nichols got a comment from Reed, who said, "My brother loved football. He would want me to play."

Brian Reed, 29, has not resurfaced since jumping into the Mississippi River near St. Rose, La., on Friday afternoon. Authorities have called off the search for him.

Thoughts go out to Ed Reed and his family as they try and fight through this tough time.
