Reed Says Surgery May Delay Start to His Season

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed says the surgery he had on his hip around the 2010 NFL Draft in late-April will require anywhere from 4-6 months of recovery time. Doing the math, that puts the beginning of the season around four months from then and is the bare minimum he says he needs to be ready to play.

Perhaps this information, released last week, is part of the reason the team recently went on a signing spree in their defensive backfield. Over the past week or so, the Ravens have signed veteran defensive backs Ken Hamlin and Walt Harris. In addition, they brought in and signed free agent Travis Fisher plus have a bunch of other undrafted free agents in the fold who will be in Training Camp come late-July to compete for other backup roles on the team.
