Formidable CB trio with Sauce, MCII

Reed finished the 2023 season with 76 tackles (62 solo) and one interception among his nine passes defensed in 15 games.

Sauce Gardner, Reed and nickel cornerback Michael Carter formed the league's stingiest cornerback trio. Reed is the senior member of that group at age 27, and he has been remarkably consistent, posting between 76 and 80 tackles and between nine and 12 passes defensed in each of his last three seasons. All three cornerbacks are projected to be back in 2024, with Reed entering the final year of his contract with the Jets.

Gets first interception of season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-25

Reed recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and an interception in Friday's 34-13 loss to the Dolphins.

In hindsight, it would have been better for the Jets if Reed hadn't recorded his first interception of 2023 just before halftime, as Tim Boyle threw a pick-six on the next play to close out the first half. The interception was remarkably Reed's first pass defensed of the season after the cornerback reached double digits in that category in each of the previous two campaigns. Reed has 19 tackles (17 solo) over the past two games, which is the most tackles he has posted in any two-game stretch since accruing 21 in Weeks 10 and 11 of the 2020 season.

Busy in Buffalo

Reed had nine solo tackles, including two tackles for loss, in Sunday's 32-6 loss to Buffalo.

Reed frequently had to take matters into his own hands, as all nine of his tackles Sunday were of the solo variety. In two games against the Bills this season, Reed has piled up 20 tackles (19 solo). He has just 25 tackles (20 solo) in six games against other opponents.

Clears concussion protocol

Reed has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol Friday and is on track for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Reed and Sauce Gardner are both clear of the concussion protocol Friday, giving the Jets back both starting cornerbacks. After a two-game absence, Reed is now on track to retake the field Sunday against the Giants.

Practices, still in protocol

Reed (concussion) logged a Rich Cimini of session Wednesday.

Reed has yet to officially clear concussion protocol, but his full participation indicates he is trending in that direction. He is looking to return from a two-game absence following the Jets' bye week.

Remains in concussion protocol

Reed is still in concussion protocol Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

Reed already sat out the Jets' last two games and had extra rest thanks to a Week 7 bye, but there are seemingly still outstanding steps before he can clear the league's concussion protocol. His name will be one to watch for on the Jets' injury reports throughout the week.

Missing second straight game

Reed (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Eagles, Rich Cimini of reports.

Reed will miss a second consecutive game due to this concussion, though at least he'll have extra time to recover with the Jets on bye in Week 7. With Reed out, Bryce Hall will slot in as a starter on the outside against Philadelphia.

Won't face Broncos

Reed (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Denver, Rich Cimini of reports.

Reed has yet to fully clear the league's concussion protocol, so his next chance to suit up will be Week 6 versus the Eagles. With Brandin Echols (hamstring) also ruled out for Week 5, the Jets' secondary could have a difficult time containing Russell Wilson and the Broncos' aerial attack.

Unavailable with concussion

Reed was a non-participant at the Jets' practice Wednesday due to a concussion, Rich Cimini of reports.

Reed played every defensive snap during the Jets' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs, so his appearance on the injury report Wednesday with a concussion comes as a surprise. Whether he suffered the injury at practice or against Kansas City, the cornerback now appears unlikely to be available Sunday versus the Broncos. If Reed can't go in Week 5, Michael Carter could be asked to step into a starting role in the secondary.
