SANTA CLARA -- Offensive lineman Ross Reynolds, who spent all of his rookie season on the 49ers’ practice squad, was carted off the field Sunday due to an apparent leg injury.

Reynolds, whom the 49ers signed last year as an undrafted free agent from Iowa, is competing for a job on the 49ers’ 53-man roster as a backup interior lineman.

"It's obviously extremely tough seeing something happen like that to one of your brothers and one of your teammates, especially in our own unit," 49ers right tackle Mike McGlinchey said after practice. "Ross is a guy who comes into work every single day and battles his ass off for us.

"He does everything we ask him to do, whether it's playing both guard positions, he's done a lot at center this camp. He's a very versatile football player and he's had some success this camp, so far."

Reynolds sustained the injury during an 11-on-11 period late in practice. His teammates on the offensive line gathered around the cart and wished him well before he was taken back to the 49ers’ locker room for further evaluations.

"Hopefully, it's not as bad as it looked," McGlinchey said. "And we can say our prayers for Ross today on the Lord's Day, and hopefully it all turns out OK and we get him back as fast as we can. It's obviously very, very tough to see when one of our favorite guys like that goes down."
