The NFL is looking into comments Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed
recently made about having an injury that has not been reported by the team.
Reed told the Baltimore Sun that he has been playing with a torn labrum but the injury has not been listed on the Ravens' injury report. Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that 25 to 30 players each week have minor injuries they practice and play through, according to NFL.com.
"I don't know why it doesn't go on (the injury report)," Reed said. "I'm sure a lot of guys have been through this league and had injuries and it's not reported. That's the physical part of the game and a part of the game that the fans and y'all don't (know) anything about. That's the part that we have to deal with from a workers' compensation situation, so to say. That's stuff that will be taken care of.
"I'm physically all right, but it is what it is on that."
The Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins were each fined $20,000 Friday for not following the league's procedures for reporting injuries.
