Eric Reid done for the season with torn biceps injury

Nov 21, 2016 at 2:22 PM--


FS Eric Reid suffered a torn biceps injury in the fourth quarter of the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. It is an injury that will require surgery and will end Reid's 2016 season. Today on Twitter, Reid himself announced that his season was over.


The 49ers safety had an MRI today, which revealed the extent of the injury according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.


In his fourth season with the 49ers since being selected by the team in the first round of the 2013 draft, Reid has 251 career tackles, a sack, 30 passes defended, eight interceptions, and two forced fumbles. This season, he has 48 tackles and one interception through 10 games.

Earlier today, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly confirmed that, should the injury be serious, Jaquiski Tartt would replace Reid in the lineup. Tartt was a second-round selection in 2015.

Reid has played in 742 total snaps this season and is currently the 63rd ranked safety in the NFL, per advanced statistics site Pro Football Focus. That is a big drop from Week 1 where he was ranked as their top safety in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Jauan Jennings landed on the practice squad injured reserve list on October 24. Nothing was really said of his injury, though. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about his 23-year-old receiver and revealed that the rookie is dealing with a hamstring injury. Shanahan doesn't expect Jennings to remain out for the remainder season, though. The coach hopes his young receiver can return soon and maybe even contribute, if needed. "I'm hoping [he returns]," Shanahan told reporters. "We think (he's) about three weeks away. It was tough because he was doing really good in practice and definitely would have ended up helping us this year. But he pulled his hamstring really bad, as bad as anyone we've had this

Jason Verrett embracing his healthy season with the 49ers

Cornerback Jason Verrett has struggled to get onto and stay on the football field during his NFL career. He was labeled as injury-prone after landing on injured reserve during five of his first six pro seasons. It was a bit of a surprise when the San Francisco 49ers re-signed Verrett to a one-year deal in April. It turned out to be a good move. Richard Sherman landed on injured reserve after Week 1, and Verrett has since filled in for the veteran, regaining the Pro Bowl form he displayed in 2015. "You're just so excited and so happy to see that because of everything he's been through," Sherman said last month. "I mean, some of the most devastating injuries after
