Reed Joins List Of Ravens Skipping Pro Bowl

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens free safety Ed Reed has withdrawn from the Pro Bowl due to multiple injuries, becoming the latest of several players from his team to skip Sunday’s all-star game.

Reed, 33, is dealing with ailments that include a nerve impingement in his neck, a sore shoulder and a sprained left ankle.

He will be replaced by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark.

The Ravens lost to New England last Sunday in the AFC title game. Since that time, several Baltimore players have withdrawn from the Pro Bowl: outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (undisclosed), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (thigh) and running back Ray Rice (family reasons).

Fullback Vonta Leach, middle linebacker Ray Lewis and guards Marshal Yanda and Ben Grubbs are still slated to play.

    The way Suggs played against the Pats he should stay home. He was manhandled all day.

    good video to add in there, and well said, my friend. He may have been out of the laguee, but he’s missed as a player and a man, now more than ever.This is the worst summer for the sports/entertainment industry, as legends are dropping likes flies. it truly is a shame.
