The San Francisco 49ers are activating tight end Jordan Reed off IR to play Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.
The #49ers are planning to activate TE Jordan Reed off Injured Reserve to play vs. the #Packers, source said. So one skill position being added, not subtracted. Reed has been on IR since early October.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 5, 2020
We saw Reed fill in for George Kittle back in Week 2 and catch seven of his eight targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns. He then promptly got injured Week 3 against the Giants and hasn’t played since. Still, given the lack of healthy pass catchers for the Niners tonight, taking a flier on Reed isn’t the worst idea.
