Eric Reid missed 49ers preseason opener for a very good reason

New, comments

Prior to Sunday’s game, the San Francisco 49ers announced who would not play, and they caught us off guard when they mentioned safety Eric Reid. Matt Maiocco later mentioned it was a family reason, and after the game, Reid provided the details. And I’d say it’s a really good reason.

The 49ers safety welcomed his second daughter, as his wife gave birth what would appear to be sometime this weekend. I’m guessing he’ll be back and playing next weekend against the Denver Broncos, but in the meantime, congratulations to Reid and his family on the birth of their new baby girl.
