“First and foremost – thank you all for your support,” Reed said in a statement. “The good news is my ankle is okay. The bad news is I’ve been in the hospital with bilateral pneumonia. I’m on the road to recovery, once I’m cleared from the doctors. I look forward to returning. I wish you all the best and I can’t wait to get back out there!
“Thank you so much for your support, it means a lot to me. Also, a special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at The Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.”
