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.

Montana, Young weigh in on Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo's return to 49ers

Is a San Francisco 49ers quarterback controversy brewing? That depends on who you ask. Many have discussed the possibility this week because it's a hot topic considering the Chicago Bears' upset win over the Niners in Week 1. The far-more-talented 49ers should be 1-0 right now, but they aren't. Trey Lance, being the starting quarterback now, will have to shoulder much of the blame whether that is fair or not (it's not, by the way). Meanwhile, Jimmy Garoppolo, who most expected to be traded or released this offseason, remains on the roster. He watched from the sidelines as his one-time protégé dealt with the rainy elements in his third career NFL start. Lance struggled. That much cannot be denied. His inexperience showed. Suppose things don't get



'It's an emotional game': Jimmy Garoppolo woke up fast in return as 49ers starter

Before kickoff against the Seattle Seahawks, Jimmy Garoppolo felt he was ready if his number got called. Remember, the veteran quarterback spent most of the offseason recovering from shoulder surgery and didn't participate in team meetings or even have a playbook until signing a restructured one-year deal just before the start of the regular season. On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers did call Garoppolo's number. The quarterback entered the game late in the first quarter due to a devastating and heartbreaking injury to second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who will undergo season-ending surgery on his broken ankle on Monday. "Right away, I felt sorry for Trey," Garoppolo told FOX

"San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance underwent successful surgery on his injured right ankle this morning, an injury that occurred in yesterday's game versus the Seattle Seahawks," the 49ers said in a statement. The team also provided more details on the injury itself. "Surgery was performed at Stanford Hospital and repaired two injuries to Lance's ankle, a fibula fracture, and ligament disruption," the 49ers announced. "Lance will start the rehab process, and head team physician



49ers' Kyle Shanahan: QB Trey Lance won't return this season

There has been some chatter that Trey Lance might return this season after foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung told the San Francisco Chronicle that the quarterback could fully recover within 10 to 12 weeks. Kyle Shanahan shut that speculation down on Wednesday. The head coach was asked if Lance might return sooner than the 49ers initially anticipated, as indicated by the article from the San Francisco Chronicle. "No. He'll be out until next year," Shanahan responded. A reporter asked if he meant next season, as "next year" could mean the playoffs. "Next season," Shanahan added. "Thank you.
