Ed Reed probable for Sunday's AFC championship game

Ed Reed was upgraded from limited to full participation for Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's AFC championship game between the Ravens and New England Patriots.

The eight-time Pro Bowl free safety, who sustained a left ankle injury after landing on it awkwardly in Sunday’s win against the Houston Texans, was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he improved for Friday's session. He is expected to make his customary start against New England.

Without mentioning Reed specifically, coach John Harbaugh had no updates to provide. "Injury-wise, nothing new," he said after Friday's practice. "Everything's fine."

The Patriots removed quarterback Tom Brady from the final injury report. Brady, who did not practice Wednesday because of an injured left shoulder, fully participated in Thursday's session.

Cornerback Kyle Arrington (foot) and center Dan Connolly (groin) fully practiced for the third consecutive day, and both are regarded as probable.

Nine starters were limited for the third straight day and are questionable. They were: wide receivers Wes Welker (knee) and Deion Branch (knee), linebackers Rob Ninkovich (hip) and Brandon Spikes (concussion), safeties Patrick Chung (knee) and James Ihedigbo (shoulder), left guard Logan Mankins (knee), right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/foot) and defensive tackle Kyle Love (ankle).

Tight end Aaron Hernandez (concussion) also practiced on a limited basis for the third consecutive day and is listed as questionable.
