Ravens' Reed says he'll be 'ready to go'

BALTIMORE -- There was a scary moment near the end of the game for the Ravens when safety Ed Reed was helped off the field with 11 seconds remaining in a 20-13 divisional playoff win over the Houston Texans.

Reed said he rolled his ankle while leaping for a Hail Mary pass in the final seconds. He needed to have his arms draped over two trainers to get off the field.

But Reed was able to walk on his own as soon as the game ended, going to midfield to chat with Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson.

"I'll be all right," Reed said after the game. "I'll get treatment and I'll be ready to go."

Reed has struggled the last month of the season with a shoulder injury, acknowledging that he's missed one tackle in each of the previous four games. Against the Texans, he finished with six tackles (second on the team), broke up four passes and made an interception. His first tackle was stopping Arian Foster for no gain on third-and-one on the opening series.

"He tackles even though some people don't think he tackles. He tackles a lot," coach John Harbaugh said. "I'm sure glad we have him. He's a great player."
