Ed Reed Out Week 1

Mark Sanchez will not have to worry about Ed Reed next Monday.

Ravens safety Ed Reed(notes) will miss the first six weeks of the NFL season after being placed on the reserve physically unable to perform list Saturday.

....


Tom Zbikowski(notes) replaced the injured Reed in 2009 and performed well at the position this preseason. He is expected to start against the New York Jets in the Sept. 13 opener.

This will obviously make life easier for Mark Sanchez. A young mistake prone quarterback with fragile confidence doesn't need a ballhawk like Reed on the field. It also evens things up to a degree considering some of the key players the Jets are missing.

The game might be easier, but I'm not happy to see news like this. I'd rather see the Jets beat the Ravens at full strength.
