Vernon Davis TE SF 7 Days

Davis is slated to undergo an MRI on his left ankle, Matt Maiocco of reports.

Davis' Week 3 status is uncertain at this stage, especially given that he was spotted on crutches after Sunday's loss to the Bears. With No. 2 TE Vance McDonald dealing with a right knee injury, Derek Carrier currently slots in as the team's healthiest option at the position.

Davis (ankle) was seen on crutches after Sunday's game,'s Paul Gutierrez reports.

Davis left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter after his ankle got trapped under Bears linebacker Jon Bostic. The most likely diagnosis is a sprained ankle, but said injury still leaves a wide range of possibilities. Fantasy owners will hope that this isn't the dreaded high-ankle sprain, and while the crutches aren't a good sign, they also aren't cause to panic. If Davis misses time beyond Sunday, Vance McDonald and Derek Carrier will take on increased roles in the offense, with McDonald the more intriguing fantasy option.

Davis left Sunday's game with an ankle injury and will not return,'s Stephania Bell reports.

Davis' ankle got trapped under the body of Bears linebacker Jon Bostic when the tight end made an eight-yard catch early in the fourth quarter. Should Davis miss time beyond Week 2, Vance McDonald and Derek Carrier would be in line for added opportunities at tight end. McDonald, a 2013 second-round draft pick, is the more interesting of the two players from a fantasy perspective, but the 49ers often struggled to keep Davis involved, so it would be unwise to expect big things from a lesser tight end. Davis finished his night with three receptions for 39 yards on three targets.

Davis grabbed four passes (six targets) for 44 yards with a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 28-17 win at Dallas.

Davis scored twice in the second quarter, as San Francisco built a huge lead. Even with all the weapons that the 49ers have this season, Davis remains a sure bet to approach double digits in touchdowns, with his impressive size and speed.

Davis caught one pass for 16 yards on two targets in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Davis dealt with an unspecified minor injury at the beginning of the month, but he has now played in consecutive exhibition games. He's likely done for the preseason, and should enter Week 1 at full health. The receiving corps surrounding Davis appears to be the best of his career, so this probably won't be the year in which he finally gets the target totals afforded to other top players at his position.

Davis started Sunday's preseason game against the Broncos, but he finished with no targets on the only series he played.

Many of the Niners regular starters, such as Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, played only the first series, so there's no reason to read anything into Davis' limited playing time. He was reportedly dealing with a minor unspecified injury earlier this month, but he didn't appear limited at all during Sunday's game.

Vernon Davis has reported to 49ers training camp.

ESPN 49ers reporter Bill Williamson believes it would be a "big surprise" if Vernon Davis continued his holdout through training camp.

Williamson cites Davis' inconsistency throughout his contract quest, and admission that it wouldn't be the end of the world if a new deal couldn't be hammered out. CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco hinted last week that Davis will continue to hold out, so we may not get a definitive answer before practice starts.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco wrote in a fan chat that "there are indications" Vernon Davis' holdout "is going to continue."

Davis' actions have been consistently inconsistent since the holdout began, promising one thing and doing the other. Maiocco goes so far as to write, "I'm not sure how important the game is to him at this stage of his life." Please keep in mind Maiocco was writing in a chat, but he is a plugged-in reporter with a takes worth noting. It sounds like there may more to this story than we know.
