B_Lo_Touchdowns Posted September 8, 2015 Share Posted September 8, 2015 Despite undergoing surgery to repair a damaged groin, linebacker Brooks Reed will not be placed on injured reserve, short-term or otherwise, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Instead, **** remain on Atlanta's 53-man roster.This decision allows the Falcons to use their one short-term IR designation on someone else if need be."There was no other decision other than that," Quinn said. "So, he was always going to be on the 53."Reed, 28, registered 41 tackles, 10 QB hits, five tackles for loss, four pass deflections, three sacks and an interception last year with the Houston Texans. He and the Falcons agreed on a five-year contract in March."He was always gonna be on the 53"What happened too "No sacred cows" "Not playing favorites" "Every roster spot has to be earned""Open Competition" "Blah blah blah"How is it a guy who was injured last season, hasn't practiced or played in a preseason game this year "always gonna be in the 53" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
