Falcons' Quinn says LB Brooks Reed (groin) might need surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Falcons linebacker Brooks Reed will get a second opinion on the groin injury that has sidelined him for most of the summer, coach Dan Quinn said Tuesday.

Quinn added surgery might be an option for the veteran linebacker, who signed a five-year deal with Atlanta in March.

“We certainly are concerned,” Quinn said. “We’re just trying to get it right in terms of him getting the strength back to feel like it’s just in the right spot. It certainly is (a concern) for us. He’s got such toughness and edge-setting pressure. So we’re just trying to get him where he’s feeling at his best.”

Freeman hurt his hamstring on Aug. 6 and has not played in any of the team's preseason contests. It's not clear if Freeman will play in the team's final game Thursday. 

"He ran it well today," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "Limited reps, but it was awesome to see him."
