Former Pro Bowl but oft-injured tight end Jordan Reed is retiring after seven seasons in the NFL, ESPN and NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Reed, 30, never played a full slate of games and missed the entire 2019 season due to complications from a concussion. It was the seventh documented concussion dating back to his college career at Florida.

Knee and toe injuries also often sidelined the 6-foot-2 Reed.

Reed played in 10 games (one start) last season in San Francisco after six seasons with the Washington franchise, which drafted him in the third round of the 2013 draft. Reed made the Pro Bowl in 2016 despite playing just 12 games. He caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns.

His best statistical season came in 2015 when he had 87 receptions for 952 yards and 11 TDs, all career highs. He played in 14 games that season, also a career best. Three seasons he played in 10 games or fewer.

Reed finishes with 28 career TDs in 75 games (36 starts).

49ers activate WR Samuel, promote RB Hasty to roster

The San Francisco 49ers activated wide receiver Deebo Samuel from injured reserve and promoted running back JaMycal Hasty to the active roster, the team announced Saturday.

The 49ers also placed defensive end Dee Ford and tight end Jordan Reed on injured reserve.

Samuel broke his foot during the offseason and has missed all three games for the 49ers (2-1), who host the Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1) on Sunday night.

The 24-year-old Samuel caught 57 passes for 802 yards and three touchdowns during his rookie season in 2019.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said he will pick his spots per utilizing Samuel against the Eagles.

“It is his first time back, we have got to be smart with that,” Shanahan said. “I know he’ll be out there but it won’t be his normal role, that’s for sure.”

Hasty, 24, had two carries for nine yards in a brief call-up with fellow running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman injured.

Ford has been nursing neck and back injuries for the 49ers, who are also without 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa and fellow defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. Both of those players are out for the season with ACL injuries.

Ford, 29, recorded three tackles while playing on 46 defensive snaps in San Francisco’s 24-20 season-opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Reed is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks with an MCL sprain sustained in Sunday’s 36-9 win over the New York Giants.

Reed, 30, was injured in the first quarter in the 49ers’ road game at MetLife Stadium, which was also the site of San Francisco’s win over the New York Jets the prior week. In the Week 2 victory, Reed filled in for injured star George Kittle (sprained left knee), posting a team-best seven receptions for 50 yards and two touchdowns.

Reed, who had six productive seasons with Washington from 2013-18 (including a Pro Bowl selection after the 2016 season), sat out the 2019 season after being forced to step away from the game following a series of concussions that threatened his career. Before his two touchdowns on Sept. 20 against the Jets, his most recent scoring catch came in November 2018, and his latest game with multiple touchdowns occurred in October 2017.

Reed owns 340 career receptions for 3,456 yards and 26 touchdowns in 68 games (35 starts).

Cornerback Jamar Taylor and linebacker Joe Walker were also promoted from the practice squad on Saturday. They will return there after the game.

Report: 49ers to place DE Ford, TE Reed on IR

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Dee Ford and tight end Jordan Reed will be placed on injured reserve, NBCSportsBayArea.com reported.

Ford has been nursing neck and back injuries for the 49ers, who are also without 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa and fellow defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. Both of those players are out for the season with ACL injuries.

Ford, 29, recorded three tackles while playing on 46 defensive snaps in San Francisco’s 24-20 season-opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday.

Latest 49ers injury: TE Reed (knee) out 6-8 weeks

Just over a week after recording his first two-touchdown game in nearly three years, 49ers tight end Jordan Reed is headed to injured reserve, having hurt his left knee Sunday in San Francisco’s 36-9 win over the New York Giants.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that tests revealed an medial collateral ligament sprain, and the former Pro Bowler is expected to be sidelined for up to two months.

“I know he’s disappointed but not discouraged. I think he was really liking where he was at,” Shanahan said. “It’s something that’s going to take some time, probably six to eight weeks. I know he’s disappointed in that, but nothing that’s going to affect him after that.

“He’ll hit his rehab hard. Hopefully, we can weather the storm while he’s gone, and he’ll come back to a good team.”

Reed, 30, was injured in the first quarter in the 49ers’ road game at MetLife Stadium, which was also the site of San Francisco’s win over the New York Jets the prior week. In the Week 2 victory, Reed filled in for injured star George Kittle (sprained left knee), posting a team-best seven receptions for 50 yards and two touchdowns.

Reed, who had six productive seasons with Washington from 2013-18 (including a Pro Bowl selection after the 2016 season), sat out the 2019 season after being forced to step away from the game following a series of concussions that threatened his career. Before his two touchdowns on Sept. 20 against the Jets, his most recent scoring catch came in November 2018, and his latest game with multiple touchdowns occurred in October 2017.

Reed owns 340 career receptions for 3,456 yards and 26 touchdowns in 68 games (35 starts).

Ross Dwelley and Charlie Woerner were the 49ers’ only healthy remaining tight ends on Sunday after Reed left the game.

Despite their 2-1 start, the 49ers have been riddled with injuries already this season. They beat the Giants on Sunday without starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), Kittle, running backs Raheem Mostert (MCL sprain) and Tevin Coleman (knee) and All-Pro defensive end Nick Bosa (torn ACL), among many others.

49ers lose TE Reed, CB Moseley to injury vs. Giants

San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Reed and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley were ruled out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the New York Giants after sustaining injuries in the first half.

Reed suffered an apparent knee and ankle injury late in the first quarter while attempting to drag his feet along the back of the end zone on a throw from quarterback Nick Mullens. Reed promptly clutched at his left leg as he tumbled toward the ground.

Reed filled in admirably for two-time Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle in last Sunday’s 31-13 win over the New York Jets. He made a team-high seven receptions for 50 yards and two touchdowns.

Kittle has been sidelined with a sprained left knee that he sustained in San Francisco’s season-opening 24-20 loss to Arizona.

Ross Dwelley and Charlie Woerner were the 49ers’ only healthy remaining tight ends on Sunday.

Moseley was injured after colliding with safety Jaquiski Tartt as the pair converged on Giants quarterback Daniel Jones after a 19-yard run. Dontae Johnson replaced Moseley, who was ruled out with a concussion.

Report: 49ers sign TE Jordan Reed

The San Francisco 49ers have signed oft-injured tight end Jordan Reed to a one-year deal, ESPN reported Monday.

It’s an incentive-laden deal for Reed, who has suffered a series of concussions, according to the report. Reed reunites with coach Kyle Shanahan, whom Reed played for in Washington as a rookie in 2013.

It also gives the Niners a sold one-two punch with Reed and George Kittle, if the 30-year-old Reed can stay healthy.

Reed missed all of last season with a concussion, his seventh documented dating back to his college career at Florida. He has yet to play a full season.

Reed’s best season came in 2015 when he played in 14 games and caught 87 passes for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns. Reed caught 329 passes for 3,371 yards and 24 touchdowns in his six playing seasons with Washington, which drafted Reed in the third round of the 2013 draft.

Week 10 Fantasy Disappointments

Fantasy football is a game of almost constant disappointment because even the best players in the league occasionally have a bad game in a great matchup. This is what makes fantasy football such a fun, interesting and difficult game to play. These are the three biggest fantasy disappointments from Week 10 of the 2016 NFL season.
Tom Brady
Tom Brady became the most coveted quarterback in fantasy football when he returned from his four-game suspension, and he instantly proved that he was worth the hype. Brady put on an amazing performance in his first four games of the season, but he finally disappointed his fantasy owners in his Week 10 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. While he still managed to throw for 316 yards, Brady did not put up the fantasy numbers everyone has come to expect from him. The high yardage total did not account for many fantasy points because Brady ended up with zero touchdown passes. He also threw his first interception of the season. Brady is still the best quarterback in the NFL, so his fantasy owners should expect a few more great games before the end of the season.
Jordan Reed
No pass catcher disappointment his fantasy owners in Week 10 more than tight end Jordan Reed of the Washington Redskins. While Reed often struggles to stay healthy, he usually puts up great numbers when he gets on the field. While the Minnesota Vikings have one of the best defenses in the league, they usually give up a lot of yards to the tight end. The Vikings defense has a strong pass rush and great cornerbacks, so the quarterback is usually forced to throw the ball to the tight end. While the Redskins were able to get the ball to one of their tight ends for a big play, it was a great touchdown pass to Reed’s backup Vernon Davis. Jordan Reed’s two catches for 41 yards was his worst game of the season, so he should be able to quickly bounce back the rest of the season.
Jonathan Stewart
Few players in the NFL are as unpredictable as Jonathan Stewart. He can easily get several touchdowns in a game, or he can fail to find running room for an entire game like he did in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Since there are very few running backs in the league that get consistent carries, fantasy owners are forced to rely on Jonathan Stewart nearly every week. He may be coming off a game where he only got 39 yards, but Stewart has an extremely favorable schedule the rest of the season. Fantasy owners should be rewarded for sticking with the Panthers running back very soon.
