No serious damage to Ed Reed's ankle
By Jamison Hensley
The biggest injury concern for the Ravens is safety Ed Reed. But coach John Harbaugh indicated that it's not much of a concern.
Reed rolled his left ankle when he landed awkwardly after leaping to knock down a Hail Mary pass in the final seconds of Sunday's divisional playoff win over the Houston Texans. Harbaugh was upbeat when addressing Reed's injury on Monday.
"Ed looks like he’s all right with the ankle,” Harbaugh said. “Everything’s come up OK as far as the X-rays.”
The Ravens appear to be very healthy entering Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England.
There were no setbacks with linebackers Jameel McClain (knee) and Brendon Ayanbadejo (thigh). Both played Sunday after being listed as questionable for the game.
“They fought through theirs,” Harbaugh said. “They were right-to-the-last-minute decisions, and they came out of them OK.”
