Anthony Davis will apply for reinstatement and wants to play in 2016

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that former San Francisco 49ers tackle Anthony Davis, who abruptly retired last year prior to the start of the season, will apply for reinstatement and wants to play in 2016.


Davis, who is 26, retired after dealing with a number of injuries during the 2014 season, including a concussion. He stated that he wanted to get healthy before returning to the NFL. His injuries limited him to only seven games in 2014. Davis, who is very vocal on Twitter, has repeatedly confirmed that he planned to return to the 49ers, who continue to hold his rights.

His absence left the 49ers with free agent acquisition Erik Pears starting at right tackle, contributing to making the offensive line one of the worst in the NFL. Davis was the 11th overall selection out of Rutgers by the 49ers in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has played his entire career with the 49ers and started every game prior to 2014.

"[Tight end] Tyler Kroft had an MCL sprain," Shanahan said. "He'll be out a few weeks. [Rookie running back] Ty Davis-Price had a high-ankle sprain. He'll miss a few weeks also." Shanahan added that they just learned about the injury to Davis-Price. The team will expect their other rookie running back, Jordan Mason, to step up in Davis-Price's absence.

George Kittle made it through his second consecutive practice of the week and feels pretty good. The San Francisco 49ers tight end suffered a groin injury on September 5 and missed the season's first two games. Sunday may be different, though. Kittle didn't officially confirm he will play against the Denver Broncos. However, how he spoke to reporters on Thursday gave the impression that he is ready to make his 2022 season debut. "I'm pretty happy, I would say," Kittle responded when asked about his excitement level for playing this weekend. "Just a breath of fresh air, honestly. It feels good to be back on the football field with our boys. I love our performance staff. They do a fantastic

He's likely to be on the field with his teammates on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the Denver Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High. "I'd be surprised if he doesn't play," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "We can't say for sure yet but he's been good in these two days of practice. Should be good today, and if we don't have any setbacks, he should be playing." Friday's typically lighter practice is the last before the 49ers board a plane for Denver. "Any time you add one of your better players out there, it helps in every area," Shanahan added. "George is really good in the run game, and he's good in the pass game, so
