David Reed suspended for violating drug policy

When the news first broke last December that Ravens receiver David Reed had been the target of a police investigation, he didn’t seem all that worried about the fact the cops were in his apartment , searching for narcotics (officers did discover marijuana at his place).

Instead, he seemed more worried about his reputation.

Now, Reed really has to worry about his rep, because he’s been suspended for Baltimore’s season opener and fined an additional game check for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Which is unfortunate for Reed, because he’s performed well and impressed the coaching staff this preseason, despite the fact he was dealing with a wrist injury that delayed his training camp debut by two weeks. But even though the Ravens acquired Lee Evans and drafted receivers Torrey Smith and Tandon Doss this past offseason, Reed has done well enough to be considered the team’s possible No. 3 receiver.

“Last year, right when I got excited about him, he gets hurt,” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron told the Baltimore Sun last month. “Then, this offseason, he had to have the wrist done. Now he's back, and hopefully he'll stay healthy. There's no question that he's ahead of these guys (Doss and Smith) in the sense that he's not hearing most of this stuff for the first time. He has a good feel for NFL defenses. He knows what the expectation is. He's been nothing but a plus, not only this year so far, but he's come back with the right attitude. He's practiced well, and he played pretty good the other night."

Now, it’ll just take a few more weeks before we actually see him on the field.

In other drug suspension news, Redskins cornerback Phillip Buchanon will take a four-game vacation, as directed by the NFL. According to the Washington Post, Buchanon has declined all interview requests this preseason.
