David Reed expects to come off PUP in about a week

Sidelined for the start of training camp while on the Physically Unable to Perform list, wide receiver David Reed says he expects to return in about a week.

Reed, who had offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist, said that he's feeling good, and is excited to get back on the field and take part in practice.

"It's strong. It's real strong," Reed said of the wrist. "I'll be back soon, probably like a week."

A fourth-round pick by the Ravens last year, Reed appeared in 13 games his rookie season. He led the NFL in kickoff return average, posting 29.3 yards per return, and recorded a franchise-record 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in a Week 14 win over the Texans.

With the Ravens currently lacking a proven receiver behind Anquan Boldin, Reed has an opportunity to earn plenty of reps in practice once he's healthy.

Reed said that despite the offseason surgery, he was able to keep up with his conditioning, and expects to be ready to go once he's cleared to return to practice.

"I had surgery and I've just been running mostly," Reed said. "I don't do a lot of working out. I feel good, though."
