Vernon Davis injury: 49ers TE suffers hamstring strain


The San Francisco 49ers were on the wrong end of a 29-3 loss to the NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks in the Sunday Night Football match up to conclude yesterday’s action. Unfortunately for the 49ers, they may have suffered a bigger loss during the game as their top tight end Vernon Davis went down with a leg injury near the end of the game.

Davis pulled up lame while running a nine route in the final quarter of the game, but the good news is that the team is just calling the injury a “hamstring strain” following the game and initial medical evaluation.

The news comes from CSN Bay Area.

After the game, the team gave no further details on Davis’ injured hamstring, but it doesn’t look to be serious.

Until he undergoes further evaluation and the team provides an official update, you should consider Davis as day-to-day.

If he is unable to go next week against the Indianapolis Colts, rookie Vance McDonald will get the start.
