49ers place Eric Reid on IR, promote S Vinnie Sunseri

Nov 22, 2016 at 4:40 PM--


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.

49ers promote D-lineman to active roster ahead of Saints game

On Friday, the San Francisco 49ers listed defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is "questionable" as he deals with a hamstring injury. In preparation for potentially missing Armstead, the 49ers announced that they have promoted defensive lineman T.Y. McGill from the practice squad to the active roster. They could not temporarily elevate him from the practice squad because the team had already done so three times, the maximum for one season. San Francisco waived defensive lineman Kemoko Turay to open the roster spot necessary for promoting McGill. Turay has been inactive for five games this season, including the past three.

The San Francisco 49ers placed Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve for the second time this season after the running back suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. On Friday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers placing Mitchell on injured reserve was not a certainty. That's because the team has two remaining opportunities to bring players back from injured reserve, having already used six. They will presumably use one more for defensive Javon Kinlaw, who Shanahan said may return soon. "You're allowed eight, so that's the biggest thing," Shanahan explained. "I think we need to use them by [the start of the

Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains
