Bryan McCann served as the primary kick returner in the Ravens’ 29-14 win against the Houston Texans Sunday, amassing 53 yards on two returns. But David Reed, who had assumed that role for a good portion of last season, said he is no longer bothered by the left shoulder strain that had shelved him for three weeks.
So which one has taken the lead in the kick return competition as described by coach John Harbaugh? Jerry Rosburg isn’t saying.
Rosburg also wasn’t very illuminating in determining what factors help him decide between Reed and McCann.
“Well, we make that decision every week based on how they practice and what the scheme sets up like and who the opponent is and how they kick the ball,” Rosburg said. “There’s a lot of different things that go into it, but those are the key factors.”
One source said that Reed will return kicks against the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday night. Rosburg wasn’t as definitive.
“We’ll find out on Monday night,” he said with a grin.
