San Francisco 49ers receiver Torrey Smith is finally free of symptoms from a concussion he suffered Dec. 11, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

Smith suffered what he described as a "pretty bad" concussion when he fell while trying to make a catch and smacked his head against the turf against the New York Jets in Week 14. He didn't play another game the rest of the season and was placed on injured reserve as a result.

It was a deeply disappointing season for Smith, who finished the year seventh on the team in receptions, despite the 49ers owning a shallow talent pool at receiver.

He'll be entering the third year of a five-year, $40-million contract next season.

In other injury-related Niners news, safety Eric Reid, who suffered a season-ending biceps injury, has been cleared to practice with some limitation and expects to be a full go for OTAs, Wagoner reports.
