Another UFL cut: Tuskers release safety Reed
Strange to have two UFL transaction notes in one day, but another USF alum was released on Monday, as the Florida Tuskers cut loose former Bulls safety J.R. Reed, who sprained his ankle in Monday's season-opening win against Las Vegas.
Reed, who had two tackles in the opener, said he'll be OK, but his stay in the UFL lasted just one game after he stepped down as a graduate assistant on Skip Holtz's USF staff this spring. Reed had returned to USF last fall, working with the Bulls defensive backs under coordinator Joe Tresey during the 2009 season.
It's the second prominent former Bull the Tuskers have cut loose, following quarterback Matt Grothe's release in the preseason.
