The Ravens appeared to avoid a catastrophe as free safety Ed Reed and nose tackle Terrence Cody escaped serious injuries on the same play in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s 12-7 shocking loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Reed and Cody both suffered stingers while trying to stuff running back Deji Karim on a running play in the fourth quarter. After a few minutes on the turf at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Cody walked off first. Reed took a little longer, but he also walked off the field, moving his right arm in wide circles.
Cody said his injury occurred after he collided with a Jaguars offensive lineman.
“Kind of helmet-to-helmet with somebody,” Cody said. “Neck kind of went numb and stuff. I was holding my right arm because my shoulder went numb. So it just felt weird out there.”
A team official said both players sat out for a few minutes, but returned to the game. Cody confirmed that he went back into the fray.
“No, it wasn’t that serious,” he said. “It was painful for a little bit, but after five minutes, it was gone.”Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
