How acquired: Selected by the Ravens in the fifth round of the 2010 draft.
Career stats: Has five career catches for 66 yards and 39 kickoff returns for 1,150 yards and one touchdown over three NFL seasons.
Quotable: "David Reed is a great receiver," Torrey Smith said. "He runs great routes, has great hands. It will be exciting to see everybody get their shot."
Where he stands: Reed had a couple of good days early in camp and looked dangerous at times in the slot, but he's missed the past three practices with a groin injury and is questionable to play Thursday. While his latest injury is not believed to be serious, it adds to the questions about Reed's durability.
He's played in just 16 games over the past two seasons because of knee and shoulder injuries. But the Ravens love his speed and work ethic and what he potentially could add to the return game so they rewarded him with a two-year, $2.5 million deal in March. If Reed can stay on the field, his special teams prowess gives him an inside track for one of the final roster spots.
