Reed has had this chest issue for two weeks, ever since a game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Even though he wasn’t able to train much, he still played well against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.
And yet, he didn’t come back on the field in the second half against the Vikings. He was finally ruled out for the rest of the game. The Packers have been careful with Reed because they probably want to keep him for tougher games in the future.

st 10 touchdowns in a season, which was only the third time in Packers history for a rookie. He broke Sterling Sharpe’s record for most receptions by a rookie. Making him available for upcoming games is very important for the Packers because he has made a big difference in the offense.
Reed himself said in the days after the injury that he didn’t think it would keep him from playing in the next game, which was a good sign for his rehab. This feeling was shared in the locker room, where he talked about not making the injury worse and giving the Packers hope that he would be able to play in their next games.
