Ravens FS Ed Reed Downplays Rib Injury Vs Texans
Ravens star free safety Ed Reed landed awkwardly on top of a Houston Texans player's foot in the fourth quarter, suffering a rib contusion.
However, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year returned to play Sunday in the Ravens' 43-13 loss to the Texans at Reliant Stadium.
Afterward, Reed downplayed the severity of the injury.
"It was my rib and kidney, I think they said I took a cleat," Reed said. "It felt like I fell on a shoe or something. It's just really sore right now. It hurt like heck when I was out there.
"I just hoped nothing was broken and I didn't feel like anything was broken. It just kind of cut my wind a little bit, but I'll be all right."
Reed didn't appear to have trouble with the torn labrum in his shoulder that he complained of last week and hasn't been listed on the Ravens' official injury report, causing the NFL to look into the matter.
Reed had six tackles against the Texans
Ravens coach John Harbaugh had a similar take on the injury, saying: "It looked like a rib contusion kind of a deal, but I haven't heard the finaly say on that."
