Despite a painful left shoulder strain that makes it difficult for him to put on his clothes or move too quickly, wide receiver and kick returner David Reed said surgery is a last-ditch option that he's trying to avoid. “We're trying not to go for surgery because that would mean that I would be out longer,” he said prior to Wednesday's practice. “I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible.
