Reed, who was slowed by a hamstring injury earlier in the offseason, signed a free agent deal with the Falcons after starring with the Texans.
"He had a strain so we held (him back)," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "He participated some (practice). It was more precautionary."
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, first-round pick
Beasley has yet to sign his rookie contract, which could keep him away from the team's facility. Reed is dealing with a groin injury that could keep off of the practice field.
Reed's absence is understandable due to to it being an injury. Beasley, however, is a different issue since there is little to negotiate due to the rookie wage scale.
The remaining draft picks the Falcons selected have signed.
The injury was termed "minor", but it still might keep Reed from full participation in the Falcons' upcoming OTAs, which start Tuesday.
