Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed will be in the lineup after all Sunday as he appealed his one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh's Emmanuel Sanders.
Reed was originally suspended for one week due to being a three-time offender of the rule, but on Tuesday, Ted Cottrell reduced Reed's punishment to a $50,000 fine.
In a letter to Reed, Cottrell said, “I have determined that your actions were egregious and
warrant significant discipline. However, I do not believe that your actions were so egregious as to
subject you to a one-game suspension without pay. Player safety is the league’s primary concern in
the formation of playing rules and all players are expected to adhere to those rules or face disciplinary
action. I hope in the future you will focus on ensuring that your play conforms to the rules.”
