49ers activate Mike Davis for finale against Rams; Place Michael Wilhoite on IR

Jan 2, 2016 at 1:09 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers activated rookie RB Mike Davis to the active roster on Saturday, making him available to play in the team's finale against the St. Louis Rams at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. He was placed on the IR/Designated for Return List on November 7th.

To make room for him, the 49ers placed LB Michael Wilhoite on injured reserve.


Davis, a fourth round selection out of South Carolina by the 49ers, had surgery in November on the fractured hand he suffered during a road game against the Rams.

This season, he has 24 yards on 25 rushing attempts with his longest run being just five yards. Davis also has 23 yards on five receptions.

"It'll be real weird just to come back for the last game, but any time I can battle with my team, I don't care if it's the last game or not, I'll be ready to have fun with it," Davis told 49ers.com earlier in the week.

ESPN: It would take the 'Deshaun Watson effect' for the 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo is the most likely candidate to be San Francisco's starting quarterback in 2021, and it sounds like that's fine by the 49ers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently reported that the Niners are among the teams that Deshaun Watson is "intrigued by." The quarterback wants out of Houston, but the Texans have no desire to trade him and are still hoping to reconcile their differences. Fowler added on SportsCenter this weekend that it would take a monumental opportunity, like adding Watson, for the 49ers to even consider moving on from Garoppolo. "I'm told San Fran is looking at potential upgrades, but they still like Jimmy G," Fowler said via

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,

Sheil Kapadia of The Athletic made 10 bold NFL predictions for this offseason, and two of them involved the San Francisco 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo has to be the odds-on favorite to be the team's starting quarterback in 2021, but fans and the media continue to keep an eye on what's happening in Houston with Deshaun Watson. After all, if anything can tempt Kyle Shanahan to move on from Garoppolo, it might be the thought of adding an exciting playmaker like Watson to his offense. Kapadia admits that several things could happen in Houston that keep Watson from being traded. Maybe the two sides reconcile and move forward. Maybe the star quarterback decides to push
