The Ravens announced Monday that they had activated wide receiver David Reed from the physically unable to perform list and placed safety Anthony Levine on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
Reed, 25, a 2010 fifth-round draft pick, hasn't played since he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 16 of the 2011 season. He was not ready for the start of training camp and he was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of the regular season, as his surgically-repaired knee was not fully healed.
Reed mostly played on special teams in his first two NFL seasons. He averaged 29.3 yards per kickoff return as a rookie and scored a touchdown on one kickoff return. But he struggled in his second season and lost his kick returner job after he fumbled twice in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He worked his way back into the mix a few weeks later, but tore his left ACL returning a kickoff in a Week 16 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Levine, whom the Ravens signed from their practice squad two weeks ago, played in two games this season.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
