Report: Ed Reed believes Tom Brady caused injury

Ed Reed believes his injury occurred when Tom Brady kicked him in the AFC Championship game.

Tom Brady has been known to hurt defenses with his arm, but he may have also done some damage with his leg last season.


Former Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, who is recovering from hip surgery before his first season with the Houston Texans, believes the injury occurred when the New England Patriots quarterback kicked him in the AFC Championship game.


"Only play I can look at is when I got kicked by a certain quarterback but even then I played in the Super Bowl and you saw what happened there," Reed told the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday.


Reed didn't have the surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip until April 30.


The kick apparently wasn't intentional. He said Brady has apologized for the incident.


Reed and the Ravens shut down Brady and the Patriots 28-13 for the AFC title and went on to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
