Injury Report: TE Vernon Davis unlikely to play Sunday

Oct 2, 2015 at 2:01 PM--


San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (knee) was supposed to practice today, but he returned to the team's weight room after warming up. He is unlikely to play against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, October 4.

Other than that, the 49ers appear to be fairly healthy.

RB Reggie Bush (calf), who is looking to return from a week 1 injury against the Minnesota Vikings, has been practicing all week and the team feels real good where he is at. He did not travel with the team for their road games against the Pittsburgh Steelers or Arizona Cardinals.

For the Packers, T Bryan Bulaga (knee) has been ruled out.

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



49ers rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price reveals ideal playing weight, seeks to deliver punches to the mouth

Rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price weighed in at 211 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds. He was about 225 pounds during his time at LSU. That's about where the San Francisco 49ers want Davis-Price to be in his first NFL season. "I'll be between 220, 222 this season," Davis-Price told reporters on Friday. "... That's what I'm best playing at, around that weight, 220, 222." According to the team's official weight listings, that's bigger than any of his new running back teammates. Trey Sermon comes close at about 215 pounds. That ideal weight hints at how the 49ers envision using the third-round draft pick—as a power runner more than a finesse weapon. Remember, Elijah Mitchell dealt with several injuries while



What the 49ers drafting of Ty Davis-Price might signal

For the second time in as many years, the San Francisco 49ers selected a running back in the third round of the NFL Draft. Last season it was Trey Sermon, out of Ohio State University, via the University of Oklahoma. This time it was Ty Davis-Price out of LSU. The pick left many shaking their head, especially fans who couldn't understand why the team needed to draft a running back so high when it did so a year ago. After the draft, head coach Kyle Shanahan answered that question. "We're a running team," said Shanahan. "We like to run the ball. Anytime you have a chance to get a good back, if that is what's best for your team compared to all the other positions, I don't think you can ever go wrong with a back." Maybe Davis-Price is a depth piece. "I don't think



49ers rookie OL Nick Zakelj could play center in the NFL

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood. Zakelj is a Cleveland native, drawing a connection to Alex Mack, whom the rookie watched while growing up. Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers. "I think definitely watching guys like Alex, especially growing up in Cleveland, being drafted, I
