Reed (shoulder) returned to practice Sunday and switched positions from safety to cornerback, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Reed played corner at Kansas State, where he recorded 125 tackles (103 solo), seven interceptions and three forced fumbles over his sophomore and junior seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan says he'll be more likely to contribute to the secondary -- and stick with the Niners' roster -- at cornerback as opposed to safety.
Reed is scheduled to have surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Reed only missed one game this season, and none due to his shoulder. The issue reportedly was only discovered in his exit physical following the regular season. His recovery is expected to last six months, which means the 2018 fifth-rounder should return just in time for training camp.
Reed racked up 12 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's 20-14 win over Denver.
Reed was able to see a huge spike in playing time with several defensive backs sidelined due to injury. The fifth-round pick was flying all over the field making plays, and he added his first career sack for good measure. Safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) could miss the Week 15 matchup with the Seahawks, and if he does, Reed could gain another start and provide IDP value against a run-heavy Seattle squad.
Reed (foot/chest) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Reed sat out Sunday's loss to the Seahawks due to lingering foot and chest injuries, and now appears to be nearing a return to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the rookie fifth-round pick to start against the Broncos in Week 14.
Reed (foot/chest) will not play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Curtis Pashelka of The Mercury News reports.
Reed exited the 49ers' game in Week 12 due the foot injury and didn't return. As evidenced by this news, the injury is serious enough to keep him out of the Week 13 contest, and it's worth noting Reed is also dealing with a chest contusion. Marcell Harris and Antone Exum should see increased snaps with Reed sidelined.
Reed is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers due to a heel injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Reed exited Sunday's contest during the third quarter. With starter Jimmy Ward (forearm) already ruled out, either Antone Exum, Tarvarius Moore or K'waun Williams could draw the start at strong safety if Reed is unable to retake the field.
Reed (undisclosed) has returned to Monday's game against the Giants, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Reed left the field after suffering an apparent injury on a kickoff, but has returned to the field. He'll continue to serve as a depth safety and special-teams asset for the remainder of Monday's contest.
Reed exited Monday's game against the Giants due to an undisclosed injury, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Reed walked off the field under his own power after being injured during a second quarter kickoff. Expect an update on the Reed's health if he's unable to return to the Week 10 matchup.
Reed will be starting at free safety after Adrian Colbert (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.
The rookie will make his first career start Sunday against the Cardinals. He has recorded 15 tackles (11 solo) across his first seven games of the season, with his best performance coming last week when he racked up seven tackles on the day.
Reed took most of his snaps with the first-team defense Monday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Reed has largely seen work as a free safety throughout training camp, but he took snaps in the slot on Monday's practice. The 2018 fifth-rounder looked passable in that role, and if Reed can increase his versatility, he stands to increase his share of future defensive snaps. Reed seems to be taking good advantage of the uptick in opportunity he's enjoying in the wake of Richard Sherman's absence due to a hamstring injury,
