Falcons to Get Second Opinion on Reed's Injury

It's a short week for the Falcons as they prepare to face the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. The team is working hard in Flowery Branch to get ready for the game.

Dan Quinn on Tuesday announced the Falcons have decided to get a second opinion on Brooks Reed's lingering groin injury. According to Quinn, surgery might be an option for the veteran linebacker, who has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason finale against Baltimore.

"We certainly are concerned," the head coach said of Reed's status. "We're just trying to get it right in terms of him getting the strength back to feel like it's just in the right spot. It certainly is (a concern) for us. He's got such toughness and edge-setting pressure. So we're just trying to get him where he's feeling at his best."

Reed, 28, racked up 41 tackles, three sacks and an interception last year with the Houston Texans. He signed a five-year contract with the Falcons in March.
