Vernon Davis' lone Divisional Round catch went for a one-yard touchdown as the 49ers topped the Panthers in Week 19.

Davis' first target came on a deep-seam route in the back of the end zone, but he was well covered and Colin Kaepernick's pass was too high. Davis had another end-zone target toward the end of the second half, but Kaepernick missed low. Though he was initially ruled out of bounds, Davis finally converted his third-end zone target of the first half to give San Francisco a 13-10 halftime lead when officials checked the replay. That, of course, would go down as Davis' lone reception. Davis and Michael Crabtree will have to do more next week for the 49ers to upset the Seahawks.

Vernon Davis caught two balls for 37 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Wild Card win at Lambeau.

The Packers kept Davis quiet early with double teams and brackets, forcing Colin Kaepernick to go elsewhere with the ball. Just a few plays after having a deep-seam pass broken up by CB Davon House, Davis caught a 28-yard touchdown on a similar route to give the Niners a 20-17 fourth-quarter lead. Davis now has six TD catches in six career playoff games. San Francisco heads to Carolina for the Divisional Round.

Vernon Davis was held without a catch in Monday night's Week 16 win over the Falcons.

Davis was targeted three times on the night. His goose egg likely decided plenty of fantasy title games. Davis got something in his eye early on in the game and was noticeably not himself after. He dropped a low throw from Colin Kaepernick in the third quarter, and then didn't get his hands up in time for a pass that likely would have resulted in a lengthy touchdown. For those leagues that play into Week 17, Davis gets the leaky Cardinals in the finale.

Vernon Davis caught four passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's Week 11 loss to the Saints.

Davis was targeted only five times, but made the most of his limited looks by nabbing his eighth touchdown of the season. Posing as a blocker on a Colin Kaepernick rollout, Davis hauled in a perfectly-lofted ball for a 17-yard score in the third quarter. Davis' season has been marred by injury and Kaepernick's inconsistency, but he's still a weekly top-five option at tight end.

Vernon Davis (concussion) is fully expected to play in Sunday's game at New Orleans.

Davis has passed his impact test. Barring a surprise occurrence of symptoms in warmups, he'll start and won't be limited at all. Davis also a nice matchup with Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro (concussion) out and slow-footed Roman Harper in. Vernon is a fine TE1 in a potential shootout.

The Sacramento Bee considers Vernon Davis (concussion, questionable) "on track to play" Sunday at New Orleans.

The 49ers promoted TE Derek Carrier from their practice squad on Saturday, but it's believed that was more a reflection of Garrett Celek's (hamstring) status. Celek isn't going to play. Keep checking back for updates, but Davis underwent his final concussion protocol test on Friday, and is tentatively scheduled to start against the Saints. Beat writer Matt Barrows wrote again on his blog Saturday that Davis is "expected to play."

Vernon Davis (head) practiced in a no-contact jersey on Friday.

Davis would be practicing in a normal jersey if he'd passed all of his concussion tests. He may before Sunday's game against the Saints, but fantasy owners need to be prepared on the off chance he doesn't. Vance McDonald is his backup at tight end. If Davis can't play at New Orleans, Colin Kaepernick's fantasy outlook would take a major blow. He's painfully short on weapons.
