According to the Gainesville Sun, Florida Gators tight end has returned to practice after spraining a knee last week. “He’s fine. He’s practicing,” offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Reed played in 11 games for the Gators last season, including 10 starts. He caught 28 passes for 307 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns. It is important that Reed stays healthy for the Gators, who are already thin at the tight end position. Converted defensive end Tevin Westbrook has been playing well after making a switch to the offensive side of the ball this summer. Pease praised his attitude on Wednesday: “The kid’s got a great attitude. I probably can’t say enough good things about him. He’s done a great job. He can catch and block. He’s built our depth and he’s made our packages better.”   Be sure to check out other great articles at Heavy in the Games.
