49ers TE Jordan Reed will miss 6-8 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Reed was injured on a low hit during their win against the New York Giants. Reed was placed on Injured Reserve.
The 49ers lose their top offensive weapon for at least Week 2. Jordan Reed or Ross Dwelley will start, and both figure to see targets from Jimmy Garappolo.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Kittle’s return to practice is a good sign for his potential Week 12 availability. He may be able to return this week but it’s no sure thing. Ross Dwelley would be a solid start if Kittle can’t play.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 11. Ross Dwelley saw seven targets last week with Kittle sidelined. The Cardinals are last in the league in TE aFPA, so it's a great matchup for Dwelley.
