Ravens: Reed says he has torn labrum in shoulder

Ravens safety Ed Reed indicated he's playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder during a radio interview with 105.7 The Fan Wednesday night.

He hinted the injury could be adversely affecting his play, although Baltimore didn't list him on Wednesday's injury report. Reed wasn't listed as having a shoulder injury on any injury report during the first six weeks of the season.

Reed didn't seem to be favoring either shoulder during Sunday's win against the Dallas Cowboys, but had two ugly missed tackles that contributed to long gains for the Cowboys, one on a 28-yard run by DeMarco Murray in the first quarter and another on Dez Bryant's 17-yard catch-and-run during the fourth quarter. He made no effort to wrap-up the ball-carrier on either play, opting to grab at Murray and throw a shoulder at Bryant.

Questions regarding Reed's willingness as a tackler are nothing new. He's battled a nerve impingement in his neck for the past several seasons, severely impacting his once aggressive approach in attacking opposing ball-carriers.

Reed has 24 tackles and two interceptions in six games this season.
