Reaser was waived by the 49ers on Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Reaser was let go to make room for cornerback Asa Jackson's promotion from the team's practice squad. Reaser did not play a defensive snap against the Panthers on Sunday, but did contribute 10 snaps on special teams.
Reaser entered Sunday's preseason loss to the Vikings with the second-unit defense, finishing with six tackles (all solo) in 43 snaps.
The 26-year-old has slipped down the depth chart this preseason and projects to be a backup/special teams contributor now that his knee injury has healed.
Reaser (knee) is considered day-to-day, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It looks as if Reaser is closing in on a return to the practice field, which bodes well for the reserve cornerback. If all goes well, expect Reaser to return within the coming days.
