The San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have placed FS Eric Reid on the Injured Reserve List and promoted S Vinnie Sunseri from the practice squad to the active roster. To take Sunseri's place, the team has signed S Marcus Ball to the practice squad.

Reid suffered a torn biceps injury during the final minutes of the 49ers' loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. He had a successful surgery to repair the injury today.

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 had 48 tackles and one interception through 10 games.

Sunseri joined the 49ers practice squad on November 1 after being released from the New England Patriots' practice squad on October 24. He was drafted out of Alabama by the New Orleans Saints in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. In 2014, Sunseri played in nine games for the Saints and had five tackles on defense and six on special teams. He will wear number 40 with the 49ers.

Ball started his NFL career by signing with the Saints in April of 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis. During his rookie season, he played in 12 games, starting two. He had 12 tackles on defense and nine on special teams. In May of 2015, he signed with the Carolina Panthers' practice squad. He appeared in one game in 2016 with the Panthers but was released on October 11. He briefly spent time on the practice squad of the Jacksonville Jaguars before joining the 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is being joined by two of his teammates on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Niners announced today that they are placing safety Jaquiski Tartt and wide receiver Jauan Jennings on the list, which means neither will be present for the first training camp practice. 49ers players underwent their first COVID-19 tests yesterday morning, upon reporting to the team's facilities. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, Tartt was already dealing with a toe injury and was a candidate to land on the active/physical-unable-to-perform (PUP) list.

I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
