Ravens safety Ed Reed called the NFLPA last week in an attempt to reduce his mandatory six-week inactive stint on the PUP list. "I thought I could have got it reduced," said Reed, who is recovering from offseason hip surgery and won't be allowed to play before the Oct. 24 game against the Bills. "Maybe I should've called [commissioner Roger] Goodell. It's all in the game. You've got to abide by the rules and all I can do is take advantage of this time, and I know these guys are going to do their jobs."
