49ers-Packers Final Injury Report: Cheering For Jeff Reed? Really?

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers released their final injury reports today and it's safe to say the 49ers are a big banged up. Aside from Frank Gore's hip, the injury report goes beyond the usual probables this week. David Baas sat our Wednesday and Thursday practices, but then got limited work in today. Of all the day-to-day injuries, this one worries me the most. I'm really hoping he can go on Sunday.

The questionable list is filled out with Parys Haralson and Shawntae Spencer. Haralson actually sat out the entire week of practice, while Spencer followed Baas' practice pattern. One has to wonder how much of this is serious concern, and how much was given banged up players some time to get fresh given the short week. Initially I was concerned about these injuries, but as I think about it more and more, I'm hoping it has more to do with the short week.

The one injury that concerns me as much from a non-playing perspective as a playing perspective is Joe Nedney's knee. The team officially announced the signing of former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed. Although the team is getting a bit of a mixed bag with Reed, I'd have to imagine he's a better option than Shane Andrus. I wish Andrus could have succeeded but he really struggled in his limited time. However, the reason I'm really concerned is because of the fact that we kind of have to root for this guy (if you can't see it, do a google images search for Jeff Reed). If he kicks a game-winning field goal so be it, but I have to say that I'm hoping he's only around this week. Seriously, is he the missing cast member from Jersey Shore?
