Week 7 Outlook
The 49ers placed TE Jordan Reed (knee) on the injured reserve Monday. He reportedly could be out six-to-eight weeks.
Reed was placed on the injured reserve Monday and could be out of action for six-to-eight weeks. “Reed’s knee sprain is serious enough it could keep him out six-to-eight weeks,” said 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan. The veteran TE exited Sunday’s Week 3 contest against the Giants early with a knee injury. With Reed out and star TE George Kittle banged up, look Ross Dwelley to see an expanded role.
Jordan Reed managed to catch 2-of-6 targets for 23 yards before exiting with an ankle injury during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants' in Week 3.
As if the 49ers' needed another injury to deal with, Reed left the game after landing awkwardly on his ankle while attempting to secure a touchdown catch. Ross Dwelley replaced him and filled in admirably, catching all four of his targets for 49 yards. With George Kittle (knee) likely to return in Week 4, Reed's time as the starting tight end may be coming to an end, but his health will remain the number one concern heading into the week. The 49ers' should provide an update on his status at some point in the coming days.
TE Jordan Reed has been ruled out the remainder of Sunday’s Week 3 contest against the Giants due to ankle and knee issues.
Reed exited Sunday’s game against the Giants early grabbed his left ankle after a near touchdown reception. He has been ruled out the rest of Sunday’s game. Ross Dwelley will handle tight end duties for the 49ers with both George Kittle and Reed out.
49ers TE Jordan Reed appeared to twist his ankle on the MetLife field turf after attempting to catch a touchdown pass in the back of the end zone.
This comes after the NFL deemed the MetLife field turf good to go after multiple injuries a week ago. Keep an eye on Reed’s injury status to see if he can come back in the game today.
Jordan Reed hauled in seven of a team-high eight targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns during the 49ers' 31-13 victory over the Jets on Sunday.
Reed surely took advantage of his increased role with George Kittle (knee) forced to miss this game as he headlined the 49ers' passing attack on Sunday. It's unclear how much longer Kittle will be out, but if he is forced to miss next week, there is no reason why Reed shouldn't be fired up as a top-15 TE with top-10 upside. It is worth mentioning that Jimmy Garappolo exited with an ankle sprain and could miss up to six weeks, leaving Nick Mullens at the helm moving forward. Fantasy managers should continue to pay close attention to Kittle's status throughout the week as Reed offers little to no fantasy value when the All-Pro TE is on the field.
