    Ravens S Ed Reed suspended by NFL for 1 game

    NEW YORK (AP) — Baltimore Ravens star safety Ed Reed was suspended for one game by the NFL on Monday for repeated hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players.

    The 11-year veteran will miss Sunday's game against San Diego.

    Reed is suspended for three violations of the player safety rules in the past three seasons. The latest came in Sunday night's 13-10 victory over Pittsburgh when he was penalized for unnecessary roughness in the third quarter for a hit to the head of receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

    Reed also was penalized Sept. 23 against the Patriots for unnecessary roughness and fined $21,000 for striking Deion Branch when the receiver was defenseless. Before that, Reed hit Saints quarterback Drew Brees on Dec. 19, 2010, and was fined $10,000.

    ``We cannot tolerate repeated violations of rules, especially rules related to player safety,'' NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson said Monday. ``We will continue to take the strongest possible action to deter these types of violations and protect our players.''

    Under the collective bargaining agreement with the players' union, the suspension can be appealed within three days. An expedited hearing and decision would take place this week.

    Appeals are heard by either Art Shell or Ted Cottrell, the officers jointly appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association.

    Reed is the second player suspended this season for violating rules designed to protect players. Denver linebacker Joe Mays was barred for one game for an illegal hit against Houston quarterback Matt Schaub on Sept. 23.

    Not even close. If that was the case he wouldn't be suspended for every tackle he makes and suspended for much longer

    Ryan Clark needs to be careful now. They are making an example out of Reed and sending a message.

    It's the same thing they did to Harrison last year. 3 offenses within 3 years, 1 game suspension.

    Reed has been doing this for the last three years. It's about time they suspend him.

    I guess it was all right if h is a repeated offender. It was not really the worst hit I ever saw, but helmet-to-hemlet nevertheless I suppose.

    I see a player revolt in the future.

    Well, you know that Goodall hates us more then any team in the league. He hates us as much as he hates the Saints right now.
