D.Reed, Zbikowski ruled out for Sunday

Despite coach John Harbaugh holding out hope that David Reed could play Sunday despite a concussion, the Ravens have ruled out the rookie kick returner and wide receiver for the game against the Cleveland Browns.

Reed, who leads the NFL with a 29.3-yard average on kick returns, had not practiced all week because he had yet to pass post-concussion tests. Earlier on Friday, Harbaugh said the team would continue testing Reed up until Sunday, but Reed was ruled out in the organization's final injury report of the week.


Free safety Tom Zbikowski also will not play because of a bulging disc in his back.

Starting tight end Todd Heap (pulled right hamstring) was limited in practice for the third straight day and is listed as questionable. Cornerback Chris Carr, who did not practice Friday due to an illness, is also considered questionable.


Defensive end Cory Redding (elbow) also did not participate, but he is probable for Sunday.Wide receiver Derrick Mason (ankle), linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (knee) and safety Haruki Nakamura (illness) were upgraded to full participation and are listed as probable.

Center Matt Birk (knee), wide receiver Marcus Smith (shoulder), offensive lineman Tony Moll (illness) and linebacker Jason Phillips (illness) practiced fully and are probable.

For Cleveland, rookie quarterback Colt McCoy (illness) and return specialist/wide receiver Joshua Cribbs (foot) practiced fully for the second consecutive day and is listed as probable.

Starting right tackle John St. Clair (ankle) and right guard Floyd Womack (knee) were upgraded to full participation after being limited Thursday and are probable.

Starting running back Peyton Hillis (knee) and cornerback Sheldon Brown (shoulder) were limited for the third straight day, but are listed as probable.

Starting defensive end Kenyon Coleman (knee) was upgraded to limited participation and is questionable.
