Rumor: Joe Staley defended Kaepernick against Vernon Davis’ criticisms

Oct 27, 2015 at 3:58 PM--


File this within the "Take it for what it is worth" category. Kyle McLorg of Bay Area Sports guy is reporting that – according to a source – the two involved in a locker room quarrel are San Francisco 49ers T Joe Staley and TE Vernon Davis.

McLorg states that the first "tense" discussion was following the team's week 4 loss to the Green Bay Packers, which was later confirmed by head coach Jim Tomsula. Staley expressed some doubts about the severity of the knee injury that caused Davis to miss multiple games.

According to the source, on the day after the Packers loss, Davis was told by a trainer that there was nothing wrong with his knee. Staley called Davis out on this the next day and they exchanged words over it.

Another verbal altercation took place following the 49ers' loss on Thursday night to the Seattle Seahawks. According to McLorg's source, this was the player argument over QB Colin Kaepernick. Staley was defending Kaepernick against Davis, who was speaking out against him.

During a radio interview earlier today, Tomsula shot down accusations of a divide within the locker room, the accusation that Kaepernick was 'alone on an island,' and compared the heated team meeting to that of an Italian dinner table.

In the five games this season that he has played in, Davis has 12 catches for 170 yards and no touchdowns.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't officially been ruled out of Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants. Most don't expect him to play, though. Garoppolo sustained a high-ankle sprain on Sunday and did not practice on Wednesday. The most likely scenario is that fans see Nick Mullens leading the 49ers offense against the home-team Giants at MetLife Stadium. Giants coach Joe Judge is familiar with Garoppolo. The coach was with the New England Patriots during the quarterback's time serving as Tom Brady's backup. "One thing that stuck out to me about Jimmy early on was he never backed down from any competition," Judge told reporters on Wednesday. "He's a guy, it didn't matter what room he was in, who he was competing with,

Quarterback Nick Mullens started against the New York Giants in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. It is Mullens' ninth career start, with his first eight coming in 2018 after Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL. Mullens currently has 231 passing yards against the Giants with San Francisco leading 23-9 in the third quarter. That total puts the fourth-year quarterback in some legendary company. Mullens has become the first 49ers quarterback to throw for 220-plus yards in nine straight starts since Joe Montana did so over the 1985 and 1986 seasons. San Francisco signed Mullens as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2017, and the quarterback spent his rookie season on the practice squad. Mullens' 2,277 passing yards in 2018 were the
