Free safety Ed Reed, who missed all of last year's training camp with a nerve impingement in his neck, will not practice Friday. He has been placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list.
The five-time Pro Bowl performer started slow last season but he hit his stride during the Ravens' playoff run. Reed made eight interceptions in his last six regular-season games and returned a pick for a touchdown in the playoffs.
But the injury still never allowed him to be as physical as previous seasons. When he participates in camp this year is anyone’s guess.
The Ravens can take a player off PUP throughout the preseason. If a player is on the PUP list at the start of the regular season, he must miss at least the first six weeks of the season.
Including Reed, the others currently on the Ravens' PUP list are: wide receivers Kelley Washington (flu) and Yamon Figurs (foot); Marshal Yanda (knee); cornerback Samari Rolle (groin and shoulder); offensive tackles Adam Terry (knee) and Joe Reitz; and linebacker Jason Phillips (knee).
Running back Willis McGahee (knee) and guard Ben Grubbs (ankle) have been activated off the PUP and are scheduled to practice Friday.
