With Joe Nedney still nursing a sprained knee and Shane Andrus missing two field goals in Monday night's win over the Cardinals, ProFootballTalk.com reports the 49ers have brought in former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed.
Reed is the second-leading scorer in Pittsburgh Steelers history, and was Pittsburgh's Old Reliable until a 15-for-22 start to the 2010 season. He had been a Steeler for eight seasons, and becomes the only guy on the current 49ers roster with a Super Bowl ring.
The Packers are 9½-point favorites at home in Sunday's 10 a.m. PST contest.
