Seattle Seahawks cornerback Kalan Reed suffered a neck injury that not only resulted with him being put on injured reserve but is also likely career-ending, according to his agent Harold Lewis via Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport reports that Reed suffered injuries to the third and fourth vertebrae, leading to numbing after his final game. His health is at serious risk if he plays again. As Rapoport puts it, “A tough reality.”
Reed was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the seventh-round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was waived at the start of the 2016 season but signed on with the team’s practice squad. He was called up towards the end of the season.
The Titans placed Reed on injured reserve during the 2018 preseason and later waived him with an injury settlement.
The Seahawks signed Reed to their practice squad last October. They re-signed him as an exclusive rights free agent this past offseason.
Reed played in three games in 2017 and had a pass defense.
