Reid's Injury Another Blow to Struggling 49ers

Reid was injured in the fourth quarter, but he led the 49ers with seven tackles despite leaving the game early.

The fourth-year player entered Week 11 second on the team with 55 tackles while also adding one interception and five passes defended.

A first-round pick in the 2013 draft, Reid has started every game he has played for the 49ers, earning a Pro Bowl nod in his rookie season. Unfortunately, changes to the personnel have led to a dramatic decrease in the effectiveness of the entire San Francisco defense, which now rates among the worst in the NFL.

Sunday's loss was the ninth in a row, as the team dropped to 1-9 on the season.

With Reid missing the remainder of the campaign, Marcus Cromartie and Jaquiski Tartt should earn more playing time next to Antoine Bethea at safety.
