OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Pro Bowl FS Ed Reed skipped the Ravens' mandatory minicamp Tuesday.
Under the NFL collective bargaining agreement, Reed can be fined up to $63,000 if he misses all three days of practices.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he hasn't spoken with Reed, adding, "I'm not sure what the situation is."
MLB Ray Lewis downplayed the situation, saying, "I don't think it's an issue at all." Lewis expressed confidence that Reed would be in attendance at training camp in late July.
In other news, OT Bryant McKinnie didn't practice for conditioning reasons. Harbaugh said, "We're probably going to continue to do that to get him into good shape."
C Matt Birk was absent while recovering from surgery on varicose veins in his leg.
