"“Atlanta Falcons outside linebacker Brooks Reed suffered a “minor” groin injury, according to multiple sources, but the injury could keep Reed sidelined for the start of organized team activities next week.Reed apparently injured his groin during the team’s recent voluntary minicamp. The Falcons are set to begin their first OTA practice Tuesday.”"

Reed recently signed a 5 year 22 million dollar contract and is expected to start on the new renowned defense that Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff put together.

It is only a minor injury for Reed, and his groin shouldn’t set him back whatsoever when mandatory practice starts. He is not the only one who is recovering from an injury, according to ESPN.

"“The Falcons are likely to have their share of players sitting out OTAs. Left tackleJake Matthews (Lisfranc ligament surgery), center Joe Hawley (ACL/MCL), tackle Sam Baker (ACL), center/guard Peter Konz (ACL), strong safety William Moore (shoulder), running back Antone Smith (leg), and rookie cornerbackJalen Collins (foot) are some of the players recovering from serious injuries.”"

Organized team activities are set to start next week for the Falcons.
