The NFL has decided to suspend Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed for one game without pay, for a helmet-to-helmet hit he committed during last night’s game against the Steelers.
While this seems a bit excessive, the NFL has to put their foot down with all the concussions that players have suffered over the past few weeks.
Safety ED REED of the Baltimore Ravens has been suspended without pay for one game for repeated violations of the rule prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players.
The suspension was imposed by NFL Vice President of Football Operations MERTON HANKS. Reed may not practice this week nor play in the Ravens’ game this Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. He may not be at the team practice facility or stadium for any other activities during the suspension. He will be reinstated on Monday, November 26.
