A professional athlete's willingness to compete often goes unmatched, but when it becomes a hazard, should the decision be for someone else to make?
Reed has never played the full 16 games in a single season, his highest mark coming in 2015 with 14 games. The former Florida Gator was a Pro Bowl selection the following year, appearing in 12 games and starting in eight of them.
Though concussion protocol is taken seriously and passing the required tests suggests a player is ready to go, there should be some type of exception made when a player has the same injury multiple times.
In addition to several concussions, Reed has missed time due to a toe injury last year, and hamstring injuries in 2014 and 2017.
