Ed Reed wasn't supposed to play for the Ravens against Atlanta on Thursday. The team's website announced he scratched about an hour before kickoff.
But there he was, No. 20 starting at FS right after kickoff. So what changed Reed's mind in order to get him on the field in Baltimore's first preseason game?
"A couple of teammates asked me to play and I was like, 'Cool. I'm not doing anything else,'" Reed said. "Physically, I could play. I was looking forward to playing anyway."
It looks like it doesn't take much to convince Reed to play some football.
