The 49ers placed Ford (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford will miss at least three weeks as he recovers from a neck injury that has kept him out of the last two games. The 49ers are quite banged up on the defensive line, so expect Dion Jordan, Ezekiel Ansah and Dekoda Watson to continue taking on increased duties behind starters Arik Armstead and Kerry Hyder.
