    A week after watching Bryan McCann return kicks against the Houston Texans, David Reed re-assumed that role in the Ravens’ 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday night. Reed had missed two games after suffering a left shoulder strain against the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 18 before returning after the bye week. Reed said he was grateful for the opportunity to return kicks – an assignment that he had carried out well last season when he led the NFL with a 29.3-yard average. “Just getting back to where I used to be and just getting back used to things and stuff,†he said. “I’m just trying to get healthy and try to get consistent.†Special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said Reed’s improved health was a significant factor in shifting the return duties back to him. “We thought he was 100 percent healthy, we saw a really good week of practice," Rosburg said. "We saw him take some hits in practice, and we were confident that if he took a hit in the game, the ball would still be in his hands at the end of the play.â€
