You can expect the 49ers to place Reid on injured reserve in the coming days.
According to Mindi Bach, the concern for 49ers S Eric Reid is that he may have a possible torn biceps, which would end his 2016 season. He will be evaluated further tomorrow. He left with his right arm in a sling.
Bach mentions that Reid will be evaluated further on Monday but he was seen with his right arm in a sling after the game.
Reid, 24, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $8.398 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $1,561,467 for the 2106 season when the 49ers picked his fifth-year option back in April.
The fifth-year option will run the 49ers $5.6 million in 2017, but is guaranteed only for injury and won’t prevent them from working on a long-term extension over the next year.
Entering today’s game, Reid had appeared in nine games for the 49ers and recorded 55 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 60 safety out of 86 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Reid’s injury as the news is available.
