Ravens safety Ed Reed will have his hip injury evaluated Wednesday in Miami, according to his agent, Eugene Mato.
Reed has missed the Ravens’ last three games with the ailment and will see specialist Dr. John Uribe.
Reed hasn’t been able to function normally at practice, though MRIs have come back negative.
“Ed is hopeful he can play Sunday, and he’s doing everything he can to be able to play,” Mato said.
Reed and the Ravens will know more Wednesday about the likelihood of his return to face the AFC North rival Steelers in a game with huge playoff implications. The Ravens hope Reed can play, and all involved are seeking ways to limit the pain and discomfort plaguing the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
