49ers.com's Andrew Pentis has the latest on Reid:
Reid’s last open-field tackle resulted in a concussion on Sunday in Seattle. He passed standard post-concussion tests on Wednesday and was wearing a blue, non-contact jersey during Thursday’s practice. He will have to pass one more test, on Friday or Saturday, to be eligible to play for the Week 3 matchup.
UPDATE: Wednesday, Sept. 18
From ESPN's Bill Williamson:
#49ers Harbaugh said Davis is day-day. Said Eric Reid is not showing any concussion signs.— Bill Williamson (@BWilliamsonESPN) September 18, 2013
From the Bay Area News Group's Cam Inman:
No sign of Vernon Davis (hamstring), Eric Reid (concussion), Ray McDonald (ankle) after #49ers a.m. practice— Cam Inman (@CamInman) September 18, 2013
UPDATE: Tuesday, Sept. 17
Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee transcribes this information from 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, via Sulia:
"On KNBR this morning, 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said both S Eric Reid and DL Ray McDonald would be wait-and-see this week. Reid suffered a concussion on Sunday. And while he showed no symptoms Monday, Fangio noted that Alex Smith didn't, either, immediately after last year's concussion, but that the symptoms appeared the day before the following game"
UPDATE: Tuesday, Sept. 17
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com confirms Eric Reid must still pass concussion tests before he is able to practice:
Meanwhile, rookie free safety Eric Reid is not experiencing any concussion symptoms, Harbaugh said. Reid sustained a concussion Sunday night in the 49ers' 29-3 loss. He did not play in the second half. Reid must go through the NFL-mandated concussion protocol before he can be allowed to return to practice and play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
Reid, who was selected in the first round by the 49ers and won the starting job in San Francisco, racked up an interception in each of his first two NFL games.
The 29-3 shellacking the 49ers endured is made worse by the string of injuries the team saw. Ian Williams broke his ankle in the game and as the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows indicates, Vernon Davis and Ray McDonald also sustained injuries in the game:

The 49ers take on the Indianapolis Colts in San Francisco in Week 3. Both teams come into the contest 1-1 and looking to bounce back from Week 2 losses.
Craig Dahl replaced Reid at free safety, and it's likely that if Reid cannot go, Dahl will be given the start against Indianapolis. There is no word yet as to whether or not Reid will be available for the game.
