Reed was penalized for a hit against Emmanuel Sanders, which is just the latest in a string of vicious hits to the head and neck area that have resulted in player injuries over the years.
NFL Executive VP of Football Operations Ray Anderson had this to say:
Taylor Mays is the only other player to receive a similar suspension this year.
We'll see if Reed adjusts his playing style at all, or if he continues as usual. If he keeps it up, it could lead to longer, more costly penalties. This suspension will result in him losing out on a $423,000 game check.
