Ed Reed left Monday's game between the Ravens and Bengals with a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ed Reed went to the locker room with a hamstring injury during the third quarter of Monday night's game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. Reed had just made arguably the play of the game, returning an interception 34 yards for a touchdown to give the Ravens a 34-13 lead. He set the NFL record for career interception return yardage on the play.

Analysis: Immediately after making history, Reed hobbled into the locker room. The good news is that he returned to the sideline at the beginning of the fourth quarter still dressed but with his helmet off. With the Ravens holding a big lead, don't expect Reed to make a return to the game even if he's able. Be sure to follow up during the week if you own Reed in your fantasy IDP league, but it appears the future hall-of-famer will be okay going forward.
