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 he 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, one of Antone Exum, Tarvarius Moore or K'waun Williams could draw the start at strong safety if Reed is unable to retake the field.
