The injury-depleted Ravens defense just got a little more depleted.
Second-round pick NT Terrence Cody had surgery to repair the meniscus in his knee and will be out two weeks, coach John Harbaugh told reporters, including Rapid Reporter Jon Gallo . Cody will be considered questionable to return in time for the season opener.
And while it seems unlikely Ed Reed (offseason hip surgery) could play this early in the season, the team will sit down with the perennial Pro Bowl safety to see if Baltimore should start him on the Physically Unable to Play list.
From t he Baltimore Sun:
Reed, who had offseason hip surgery, would miss the first six weeks of the regular season if he is put on the Reserve PUP list. It seem s like Reed is pushing to return soon after speaking with Harbaugh, general manager Ozzie Newsome, defensive coor dinator Greg Mattison and secondary coach Chuck Pagano on Monday.
"He wants to come back, but he understands the situation, too," Harbaugh said. "There’s a lot more that goes into it. We have until Saturday to make a decision and I’m sure we’ll take until Saturday to figure that out."
Harbaugh, though, didn't rule out the scenario of Reed playing in the Sept. 13 opener at the New York Jets after sitting out the entire preseason.
