Reed (shoulder) is questionable to play Week 2 against the Raiders, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed suffered the injury Week 1, though the details of which remain unclear. His status will be confirmed prior to kickoff, but if he's ultimately unable to play, Adrian Clayborn and Courtney Upshaw project to see more playing time Week 2.

Reed (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed suffered the shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, and it could keep him sidelined for Week 2's matchup against the Raiders if he's unable to improve throughout the remainder of the week. According to Falcons coach Dan Quinn, Reed is expected to participate in conditioning off to the side during Wednesday's practice, but not be a factor in any team drills. An update regarding his status for Sunday's contest should become available later this week.

Reed suffered a shoulder injury Sunday versus Tampa Bay and is questionable to return, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The specifics of his injury are unclear at this point in time. Adrian Clayborn will likely see an uptick in snaps for the remainder of the game unless Reed is able to return.

Reed was limited to 17 tackles in 13 games with the Falcons in 2015.

EDGE Analysis

Reed failed to record a sack for the first time in his career, and he only played in 32.9 percent of the defensive snaps. He has four years remaining on his contract, so Dan Quinn will need to find new ways to get production out of Reed in 2016.

Reed (groin) is starting Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

In his Falcons debut, Reed will line up versus his former team at strong-side linebacker, where he'll act as more of a pass rusher than a tackle machine.

Reed (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Limited both Wednesday and Thursday, Reed finally logged a full practice Friday, setting him up for his regular-season Falcons debut. It's not entirely clear that he'll start, but he should get some snaps as both a strongside linebacker and defensive end. Reed can safely be ignored for IDP purposes.

Reed (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Brooks was trending in the right direction, practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday, but coach Dan Quinn was unwilling to rule Reed fit for game time which will force him to miss his third consecutive game. O'Brien Schofield will most likely take his place at outside linebacker when the Falcons face the Cowboys on Sunday.

Reed (groin) will be limited during practice Thursday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was initially going to be placed on the IR/designated-to-return list, but the Falcons rightly believed Reed could return sooner than the required eight week wait. While the 27-year-old linebacker has missed the first two games of the season, he was able to participate in some drills Wednesday without any setbacks. Still coach Dan Quinn is not quite ready to rule Reed ready for game-time action, however his practice status is certainly a step in the right direction.
