The only late addition to the 49ers' injury report on Wednesday was linebacker Eli Harold. Harold was not listed on Monday or Tuesday but appeared with a foot issue on Wednesday. He has been solid as an edge setter against the run in the first two weeks. If he can't play, veteran Dekoda Watson would take his place.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan ruled out S Eric Reid and LB Reuben Foster for Thursday night's game earlier this week. While TE George Kittle (hip), S Jimmie Ward (hamstring) and S Jaquiski Tartt (neck) are listed as questionable, all three looked to be moving well and participating in the team's lone practice of the week on Tuesday. Tartt tweeted Wednesday morning that he was excited to be on the field with his teammates, a good sign he'll be ready to go against the Rams. Assuming Tartt and Ward are ready to play, they will start at strong and free safety, respectively.

During portion of practice open to media, 49ers S Jaquiski Tartt (neck) was participating. He went through warmups, special teams and individual drills. Good sign for the Niners who will be without Eric Reid this week because of a left knee injury.

NFL's best and worst QBs of Week 2: Brian Hoyer scuffles

Hoyer was at his worst when trying to throw the ball downfield, so it isn't surprising his 3.67 yards per pass attempt versus Seattle is the lowest single-game total so far this season.

For fans of 0-2 teams already looking toward 2018: the Jets are the current favorites to land the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, though there are plenty of bad teams lurking behind them that have a shot.

49ers' Reid (knee) out Thu., maybe longer

The already-thin 49ers defense will miss safety Eric Reid Thursday against the Rams -- and likely longer. Reid suffered a knee injury over the weekend.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says S Eric Reid doesn't need surgery on his injured left knee but will definitely not play this week. Will probably a bit longer than a week. Reid is dealing with an injured PCL.

The 49ers did not practice on Monday but with short week turnaround for Thursday night, they released an approximated injury report. Here's the breakdown of what the following players would have been expected to do had there been a practice: Did not participate: LB Reuben Foster (ankle), TE George Kittle (hip), S Eric Reid (knee), S Jaquiski Tartt (neck) Limited Participation: S Jimmie Ward (hamstring)

The 49ers made a minor roster move Monday, signing OT Pace Murphy to the practice squad. Murphy takes the spot vacated by CB Asa Jackson, who was promoted to the active roster over the weekend. Worth noting: Murphy played for the Los Angeles Rams last year. The Niners meet the Rams on Thursday night. It's the second time this season the team has signed a player to its practice squad with ties to an upcoming opponent. They previously did it with LB Ben Boulware, who spent training camp time with Carolina.
