Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Takes starting job in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed played 10 games (eight starts) and produced 62 tackles, seven pass breakups and two interceptions during the 2020 season.

Reed was claimed off waivers from the 49ers back in August as he was recovering from a torn pectoral muscle. The third-year cornerback fully recovered and made his Seahawks debut in November. Position mates Shaquill Griffin, Tre Flowers and Quinton Dunbar all battled injuries this season, so Reed made multiple starts and ended up surpassing both Flowers and Dunbar on the depth chart before they could return from their respective injuries. Reed drew high praise from head coach Pete Carroll along the way, and he's poised to lock down a starting cornerback job with the team next season.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Making most of opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed posted six tackles (four solo), three pass breakups and an interception in Sunday's 20-15 win over the Football Team.

Reed made his season debut in Week 8, and he's piled up 48 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions over eight games. His work in coverage is drawing attention too, as he's proven an ability to handle opponent's top pass-catching options, including Terry McLaurin. Coach Pete Carroll relayed after the game that Reed "deserves to keep playing," according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. That could mean that Reed will retain the starting outside cornerback role when Quinton Dunbar (knee) -- who may not be at 100 percent upon return -- is activated from IR, although that remains to be seen.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Set to start on outside Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed is expected to start at outside cornerback for Sunday's game versus the Giants following news that Tre Flowers (hamstring) has been listed as doubtful, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Reed started three games at slot corner earlier this year when Ugo Amadi was out. Amadi is back, but Quinton Dunbar (knee) is still on IR, and Flowers isn't expected to play Sunday. Reed will get his first shot on the outside as a result. He has let up 9.1 yards per target and a 77.8 completion percentage through five games. There could be some growing pains at the new position, which may be eased with Colt McCoy slated to start under center for the Giants.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Gearing up for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (foot) is active for Monday's game versus the Eagles.

Reed has started in each of the past three games due to injuries to Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) and Quinton Dunbar (knee). However, Griffin will return for this game. Reed's responsibilities Monday could take a hit, although he may have proven enough to usurp Ugo Amadi for the slot corner role moving forward.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: DNP on projected injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (foot) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's estimated injury report, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Reed has until Monday night to get himself ready for a matchup against the Eagles, but a DNP on Thursday is less than encouraging. The 2018 fifth-round draft choice of San Francisco was not noted as having an injury following Seattle's 28-21 Thursday night victory over Arizona in Week 11, so his status is certainly one to be mindful of going into the weekend. Reed has started three straight games for Seattle, collecting 21 total tackles, a fumble recovery and a pass deflection over the past two weeks.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Racks up 11 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed recorded a game-high 11 tackles (nine solo) and a pass defensed in Thursday's 28-21 win over Arizona.

The 21 points Seattle allowed was a season-best for the team's defense, and Reed led the way by posting a season high in tackles while hitting double digits in the category for a second consecutive game. The 24-year-old safety has started to see consistent playing time alongside Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams, and Reed is making the most of the opportunity by contributing both as a run defender and in coverage.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Reed tweaked his ankle during this past Sunday's loss to the Bills, but his ability to practice at full speed puts him on track to play Week 10 against the Rams. His role largely depends on whether Ugo Amadi (hamstring) plays, as Reed has operated as the slot corner during Amadi's two-game absence. Reed has been impressive in a small sample, allowing a 69.9 passer rating over those two contests, so he could retain the role even if Amadi returns.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Injury outlook optimistic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said that Reed looked good Monday after suffering an ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Bills, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Reed handled an 85 percent snap share Sunday, covering the slot receiver while Ugo Amadi (hamstring) was inactive. He left the game late with an ankle injury, though, and his status is uncertain for this week's clash against the Rams. Carroll downplayed the injury during Monday's practice, but Wednesday's official injury report should provide a better update on his condition. Even if Reed plays against the Rams, Amadi could return to action and push him back to a reserve role.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (pectoral/hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

The 23-year-old was activated from the non-football injury list Saturday and will immediately be in uniform for the Seahawks. Reed saw most of his time on special teams in 2019, but he could be used in the secondary with Shaquill Griffin (concussion), Jamal Adams (groin/illness) and Ugo Amadi (hamstring) inactive this week.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Lifted from NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (pectoral/hamstring) was activated from the non-football injury list Saturday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Reed is past the pectoral injury that forced him to miss the first seven weeks of the season, but now he's considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers with a hamstring injury. Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Reed is "ready to play," so he's expected to suit up and could start at nickel corner because Ugo Amadi (hamstring) is considered doubtful.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Returning to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (pectoral) received the return designation and will be back at practice this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 23-year-old has been on the NFI list all season after suffer the torn pectoral in early July. Reed figures to provide depth in the secondary once he's ready to join the active roster.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Shifts to NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (pectoral) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The Seahawks claimed Reed off waivers with full knowledge of his injury, and they're willing to be patient as he rehabs from the torn pectoral muscle he sustained in July. Reed will target a November return, and he'll likely serve exclusively in a special-teams role to start out in Seattle.

Seahawks' D.J. Reed: Claimed by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks claimed Reed (pectoral) off waivers Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The ex-San Francisco safety remains in the NFC West after finding a new home. Reed is working to recover from a torn pectoral suffered early July, so he'll stay on Seattle's active/non-football injury list until he receives full medical clearance.

D.J. Reed: Cut loose by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers waived Reed (pectoral) with a non-football injury designation, per the NFL's transaction log.

Reed kicked off camp on the active/non-football injury list, the result of a torn pectoral from early July. After a week on the list, he's been jettisoned from the 49ers entirely. It's unclear if the 49ers intend to bring back the safety, but he's not expected to be healthy enough to play until December by all indications.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Will be placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (pectoral) will be placed on the reserve/non-football injury list due to the torn pectoral muscle he suffered in June, ending his 2020 season, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

GM John Lynch stated that Reed may not be able to return until December, which made his placement on the NFI list seem like an easy decision. The 22-year-old recorded 13 tackles, two passes defended and a defensive touchdown while serving as a backup at both slot corner and free safety in 2019.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Reed (pectoral) on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Reed sustained a torn pectoral early July. He could be in danger of starting the season on the PUP list, which would require him to miss at least six weeks. When healthy, Reed stands to provide the 49ers with versatile depth in the secondary.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Suffers torn pectoral
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed sustained a torn pectoral on Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The timing of Reed's injury puts him on track to begin training camp on the Non-Football Injury list, and it's possible that he could likewise start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The 23-year-old contributes as a versatile depth option for San Francisco, as he boasts the ability to line up at either safety or cornerback while also returning punts and kicks.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Defensive TD highlights season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed recorded 13 tackles (11 solo) with a forced fumble and recovery for a touchdown through 16 regular season contests.

Reed spent most of the year as a backup, but he was able to make an impact defensively when he forced, recovered and returned a fumble for a score on one of his three defensive snaps in Week 11. The hybrid corner/safety also had experience returning kickoffs in 2018, adding to his versatility and appeal for a main roster spot. Reed has two more years left on his rookie contract, and his ability to contribute in multiple ways should keep him around for a third season in red and gold.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Back to practice as CB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (shoulder) returned to practice Sunday and switched positions from safety to cornerback, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Reed played corner at Kansas State, where he recorded 125 tackles (103 solo), seven interceptions and three forced fumbles over his sophomore and junior seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan says he'll be more likely to contribute to the secondary -- and stick with the Niners' roster -- at cornerback as opposed to safety.

49ers' D.J. Reed: Scheduled for shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed is scheduled to have surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Reed only missed one game this season, and none due to his shoulder. The issue reportedly was only discovered in his exit physical following the regular season. His recovery is expected to last six months, which means the 2018 fifth-rounder should return just in time for training camp.
