Ed Reed Expects Fewer Reps In Training Camp

With the combination of his 2010 surgery, the lack of 2011 Mini-Camps and the expected shorter Training Camp, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is hoping for fewer reps in practices to keep the wear and tear on his body to a minimum. In a story on NFL.com, Reed wants to limit the amount of plays he takes part in once camp opens as soon as the new Collective Bargaining Agreement is settled and players report as early as mid-next week.

Reed knows that if he can minimize the effects on his surgically-repaired hip, the better chance he has to get in a full season of 16 games, something that Reed has not done the past two years. Both Reed and the Ravens are fully aware of the benefit he brings to the defense, as he only played 10 games in 2011, yet still incredibly led the NFL with eight interceptions.

Keeping Ed Reed healthy should be a Ravens priority, as well as allowing him to remain on the field making life miserable for opposing offenses, as he is know as the best "center-fielder" in the league, with his ball-hawking plays that can change a game perhaps as much as any other player in the NFL.
