Brooks Reed questionable to return to Falcons-Buccaneers with a shoulder injury

The man is snakebitten, evidently.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Brooks Reed just left the game a short while ago, and he may not be back.

Reed got the starting nod at defensive end, somewhat improbably, after a strong summer that saw him show up looking leaner, faster, and stronger. We’ll hope he returns to this one.

With Reed out, the Falcons figure to mix in Adrian Clayborn and Courtney Upshaw more. The defense just unfortunately allowed the Bucs to march down the field and score a touchdown as I type this.
