OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens usually have a tough time against San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Fortunately, they won’t have to face him Sunday without safety Ed Reed as the last line of defense.

Reed, an eight-time Pro Bowl star, was suspended for one game on Monday for repeated helmet-to-helmet hits. He appealed the suspension and on Tuesday the punishment was reduced to a $50,000 fine.

Which means Reed will be on the field when the Ravens (8-2) take on Rivers, who has thrown for 955 yards and six TDs in his last three starts against Baltimore. Last year, he was 17 for 23 for 270 yards in a 34-14 win.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs says, “Last year wasn’t that pleasant. … It was like raining touchdowns out there.”
