Eric Reid said on Thursday afternoon that he was feeling good after initially suffering a concussion against the Seahawks. He made a hard tackle on WR Sidney Rice, but Reid himself didn't see anything wrong with the hit when reviewing the film.
After seeing the doctors this past week, Reid is confident that he will be ready to go for Sunday.
"I went to the doctor yesterday as post concussion tests were yesterday," Reid said. "I should be fine. It's a day by day thing and they'll let me know."
Reid admitted he wanted to return to the field after the hit, but the 49ers had him exit to the locker room to further examination ruling it a concussion. He said he felt no headaches or symptoms when the game was over. Reid remains on pace to play against the Colts on Sunday.
In yesterday's practice, Reid was wearing a blue non-contact jersey and participating with the other safeties.
The rookie safety also talked about the Colts acquisition of Trent Richardson from yesterday. He played against the new Colts RB in two games while playing for LSU when Richardson was at Alabama.
"I'm aware of the type of back he is," Reid said. "He's a hard runner and likes to fall forward without the tendency where doesn't go backward. He has extra yards after contact."
Reid said it will be a challenge to put Richardson on the ground with his strength to fight through tackles. The game plan shouldn't change, but there is a bigger emphasis to execute in tackling with a new RB on the Colts, according to Reid.
