Davis did not practice Saturday due to personal reasons, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

There are various reports circulating that Davis is once again considering retirement. While nothing is set in stone, Davis' situation is something to keep an eye on as San Francisco preps for Monday's season opener. If Davis does not play Monday, Andrew Tiller is expected to start at right guard for the 49ers.

Davis will switch from tackle to guard, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Before his brief retirement during the 2015 season Davis was considered an above-average right tackle. With Trenton Brown holding his own at that position Davis will make the move from right tackle to right guard this season in an effort to earn a starting job. It is generally believed that tackle is a harder position to play than guard so he shouldn't have too much difficulty making the switch. Davis will play with the first unit this Friday against Green Bay.

Davis -- who was recently reinstated off the reserve/retired list -- will have to compete for a starting job during training camp, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

This should come as no surprise after Davis missed the entire 2015 season during his brief retirement. He reportedly performed well during his conditioning test Saturday and should have no problem winning the right tackle job if he is anywhere close to his 2014 self.

Davis announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday, ESPN reports.

Davis' retirement statement details his desire for time off from football for his brain and body to heal. As already one of the NFL's premier offensive tackles at just 25 years old, Davis' retirement is certainly surprising, but it appears health concerns played a prominent role in his decision. In retiring, Davis joins Patrick Willis, Justin Smith and Chris Borland as key 49ers that have all decided to hang up their cleats this offseason.
