Vernon Davis suffers a right knee sprain

Sep 23, 2007 at 3:41 PM--


According to Matt Maiocco's Instant 49ers blog, San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis suffered a right knee sprain in the third quarter.

He suffered the injury during the now infamous momentum changing bad call that was ruled a non-catch by Davis. Instead of putting the 49ers into a 1st-and-goal situation at the Steelers 10-yard line, they were forced to kick a field goal.

Kwon Alexander suffered a 'possible' high-ankle sprain; Shanahan not counting on Richard Sherman for 49ers-Rams

Kwon Alexander could be the latest San Francisco 49ers player sidelined. On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the linebacker suffered a "possible" high-ankle sprain on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. That doesn't necessarily mean injured reserve just yet, though, as the injury's severity hasn't been determined. Alexander played 66 of the 67 total snaps on defense against the Dolphins. "We could be wrong, but right now, they told me that they believe it's a high-ankle sprain," Shanahan told reporters. "They're not sure of the severity of it.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Jimmy Garoppolo would be a full participant in practice on Wednesday, indicating that the plan is for the quarterback to start on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. At least, that remains the hope. "He's ready to go out there and go today," Shanahan said. "He's still coming back from it, but I expect him to have a full practice, and I'll evaluate him out there."

Peter King went through his list of "Goats of the Week" in his latest Football Morning in America column for NBC Sports. No, not G.O.A.T., as in the greatest of all time. Although, one of those — Tom Brady — was on the list for his fourth-quarter mishap against the Chicago Bears. It's for the scapegoats, or those bearing much of the blame, of the week. Another quarterback — Jimmy Garoppolo of the San Francisco 49ers — made King's list. The 49ers signal-caller was returning after missing two games due to a high-ankle sprain. Garoppolo earned a career-low passer rating of 15.7 before being benched at halftime and replaced with C.J.
