Greg Reid not likely to play Saturday for Blazers

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State's newest football player, senior cornerback Greg Reid, is not likely to play Saturday in the Blazers' season opener against Saginaw Valley State, according to head coach David Dean.

"If I had a guess, I'd say no," said Dean of the status of the two-time Region 1-AAAAA Player of the Year with the Lowndes Vikings. "If you ask him, yes, he is going to play. It is just going to depend on what the doctor says, but I wouldn't count on it."

The former Florida State cornerback and punt returner, who joined the Blazers Aug. 14 after being dismissed from the Seminoles' football team for violating team rules, injured his knee while returning a punt in the Blazers' final preseason scrimmage on Friday. 

He went to the ground after attempting to shake a tackler while returning a punt down the sideline. He was seen hobbling off the field after getting up from the ground. Valdosta State medical personnel escorted Reid to the medical training room, where he later reappeared with his knee heavily iced and taped.

Initially, the injury was believed to be minor, as Reid was seen jogging off the field with his teammates Friday night.

Now, the injury seems much worse.

"It is frustrating right now," Dean said. "He came into camp a little late and he gets injured. I know he is frustrated about it. It is was a non-contact deal. He was running down the field and plants and kind of tweaked his knee a little bit. We will find out a little more about him. He went for an MRI (Monday) and he was going to meet with the doctors this afternoon. So we'll find out how he is."

More information will be made available on Greg Reid's injury in Wednesday's edition of The Valdosta Daily Times.
