I think he's healthy enough to play & if this were the Ravens, he'd probably play. But since this is new to Reed, new to Jjo, new to Kj I would have been surprised if he played with just one week of practice.
I said the same thing about Iverson, it's not that we think he needs practice, but the guys around him have got to "acclimate" to him & he's got to get to know his teammates.
