No timetable for possible Anthony Davis return

Feb 16, 2016 at 9:43 PM--


Earlier today, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that, according to a source close to Anthony Davis, there is no timetable for a return by the former San Francisco 49ers tackle.

Prior to the start of the 2015 season, Davis had retired due to health concerns. He had said that he was going to take a year off due to concussion issues and even guaranteed that he would return.

Davis has had no problem being honest with fans on social media so there is no reason to doubt that he intends to return. If he does, the 49ers would retain his rights.

The following is an excerpt regarding Davis from Maiocco's article, which focuses on addressing the offensive line durging the offseason.

Davis has yet to file for reinstatement off the NFL's reserve/retired list. There is no timetable for his return, according to a source close to Davis. And even when/if it does happen, it's difficult to believe the 49ers' offseason plan will be altered in the least. The 49ers cannot assume Davis will re-emerge as the same player they had in his prime.

Maiocco also brings up that it is unknown how Davis would fit into new head coach Chip Kelly's zone scheme.

In February last year, Anthony Lynn had already put his former team, the Detroit Lions, in the rearview mirror. He spent only one season in Detroit, serving as the offensive coordinator on Dan Campbell's staff. You could tell it wasn't the best experience for Lynn. Last offseason, when asked about the Lions' future, Lynn responded, "Well, that ain't my problem anymore. I'm just worried about what the 49ers are going to do now." Lynn had agreed to join Kyle Shanahan's staff in Santa Clara, serving as the San Francisco 49ers' assistant head coach and running backs coach. There was a sense of familiarity there. After all, Lynn has remained close with the Shanahan family over the

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



49ers' Kyle Shanahan still not optimistic about Jimmy Garoppolo's return this week

It seems it's time for your weekly Jimmy Garoppolo update. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been sidelined since suffering a broken foot on December 4. However, there is a slight chance Garoppolo could return and suit up for the playoffs, likely serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup. That probably won't be this week, though. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the quarterback probably wouldn't be ready for an NFC Championship Game appearance. However, Garoppolo suiting up for the Super Bowl, should the 49ers make it that far, might be more likely. On Monday, Shanahan was once again asked about Garoppolo's recovery and
