The San Francisco 49ers announced some injuries leading into the team's fourth practice of training camp. A number of players will not participate in Monday's practice. The team announced that rookie tight end George Kittle and cornerback Keith Reaser, who happens to be celebrating his birthday, will not participate in practice and are day-to-day. Kittle is dealing with a hamstring injury while Reaser is out due to a knee injury.

The other players who will miss Monday's practice due to injuries are safety Eric Reid (ankle), wide receiver B.J. Johnson (hamstring), center J.P. Flynn (knee), and linebacker Jimmie Gilbert (knee). Of those names, Reid was the only other player who was listed as day-to-day.

Reid limped off of the practice field on Sunday during the second snap of 11-on-11 drills.

"I saw him limp off once," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Sunday. "Then I think he came in to try to go and then I saw him limp off again and then [athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson] pulled him for the rest of practice. So, the fact that he came back I'm being optimistic that it's not too bad, but he definitely couldn't go, it was bothering him."

On Friday, another safety, Jimmie Ward, was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list with a hamstring injury. Shanahan also addressed a question about a possible timeframe for his return.

"Anytime it's a hamstring, you know, we were hoping around the Denver time, but we're not sure," Shanahan said. "Hamstrings, everybody heals different. I've had some guys with hamstrings, it's less than a week and some guys it goes to eight weeks. You never know. That's where I would hope, but I know Jimmie is doing everything he can to come back as quick as possible and when he's ready I know he'll be back."

The 49ers kick off Monday's practice at 10:15 a.m. PT.
