NFL News: Baltimore Ravens Safety Ed Reed To Start Season On PUP

Reed will miss at least the first 6 weeks.

Reed underwent offseason hip surgery and did not practice at all in the preseason. The six-time Pro Bowl star missed four games last year because of hip problems after playing every game from 2006-08.

Tom Zbikowski replaced the injured Reed in 2009 and performed well at the position this preseason. He is expected to start against the New York Jets in the Sept. 13 opener.
