49ers sign Reed replacement who spent time with team in 2019

The 49ers were without their first string tight end the last two weeks. They’ll be without their second stringer for the next few as well.

Though there is hope for a George Kittle return this Sunday, Jordan Reed will be on the shelf for six to eight weeks with a sprained MCL. That’s good news for Ross Dwelley, who caught four passes for 49 yards last Sunday. It also means that the 49ers will need another body, which is why they signed old friend Daniel Helm from the Bucs practice squad on Tuesday.

Helm, 25, spent some time on the 49ers active roster last season, but did not get into a regular season game. Helm will compete with rookie Charlie Woerner for playing time.
