Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Monday what the team feared when David Reed crumpled to the turf at M&T Bank Stadium without being hit by a Cleveland Browns player Saturday.
Reed tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during his 30-yard kickoff return to open the third quarter. It’s the second time in as many years that Reed will be unable to complete a season as he was shelved for the team’s final two regular-season contests and two postseason games last year by torn ligaments in his left wrist.
“David Reed has a torn ACL, isolated torn ACL,” Harbaugh said Monday. “So he’ll be out for the year, beginning his rehab as soon as he gets surgery, which has not been determined yet as far as the date on that.”
