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.

The 49ers are expected to bounce back next season, assuming they can safely navigate an uncertain offseason. The team had nearly 40 players playing on the final year of their contracts and have to deal with what is sure to be a greatly reduced salary cap.
