Safety Ed Reed was determined to score when he picked off an Andy Dalton pass and sprinted 34 yards down the sideline for a touchdown in the Ravens’ 44-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night.
But the scoring play that made Reed the NFL’s all-time leader in interception return yards (1,497) came with a price as the veteran injured his hamstring and did not return in what was deemed more a precautionary measure with the game out of hand in the fourth quarter.
“I wasn’t going to let the [offensive] linemen catch me,” said Reed, drawing laughter. “That’s why I just dove. It strained my hamstring trying to dive. You know, I’m 34 in two hours. Father Time does catch up with you.”
Celebrating his birthday on Tuesday, Reed wasn’t concerned about the hamstring injury or his status for the Ravens’ next game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday as he said after the game that he will play in Week 2.
“It’s good, it’s minor,” Reed said. “Once the offense scored with that [pass interference] penalty on Torrey Smith, coach was like ‘you’re down, don’t worry about it.’ If there was a [reason], I could have played. I will play this week. I’ve been in this situation before. It’s just about managing and knowing it.”
Cornerback Corey Graham limped off the field with an apparent injury late in the third quarter, but the special teams standout was not listed on the injury report released in the Ravens’ post-game notes.
