Chip Kelly: No discussion of moving Anthony Davis to guard

Aug 15, 2016 at 1:47 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers coaching staff has had no discussions about moving OT Anthony Davis to guard, something that was strangely brought up on Sunday by the announcers during the local broadcast of the game.

"We haven't had any discussions about that right now," said head coach Chip Kelly on Monday. "AD's getting solid at the tackle spot and again, we just played our first preseason game so we got a lot of ways to go. As we kind of look at the different combinations that are out there, still looking at AD at tackle."

"I think Anthony can play anywhere on an offensive line whether it be right tackle, left tackle, center, left guard, right guard," continued Kelly. "I think when you got someone 6-5, 330 pounds that moves like he moves, I think he can play any position along the offensive line."

Davis has been battling to regain his starting job at right tackle after returning from a year-long retirement. The man ahead of him is the bigger (6-8, 355) and younger (23 vs 26) Trent Brown, who has also been practicing well during training camp.

There was a lot of concern surrounding the interior of the San Francisco 49ers' offensive line heading into this season. How would the largely inexperienced starting guards perform? One player responded to the concern by playing some impressive football in the first two weeks. Pro Football Focus handed second-year guard Aaron Banks the team's highest overall grade (77.7) among offensive players. In addition, Banks is the 49ers' highest-graded offensive lineman this season, even beating out veteran Trent Williams by a slight margin. Banks' pass-blocking grade of 82.2 ranks second on the team. Who beat him out? The 49ers' other starting guard, Spencer

Quarterback Trey Lance wasn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who suffered an injury during the team's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters this afternoon and provided injury updates, as he typically does on the day after a game. "[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. "He needs to [step up] now," Shanahan said of Mason. "Last week was his first week getting a lot
