San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis suffered a concussion last week and that had his status for the game against the New Orleans Saints in doubt. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, he is expected to play today.

Last week, Davis and rookie safety Eric Reid finished the game in the locker room watching on television.

“We just sat there watching the game” in the locker room, Davis said. ”Anytime you’re sitting back, whether it’s on the sideline or you’re watching the game on TV, it’s pretty frustrating.”

It isn’t Davis’ first concussion. He said this concussion was less severe than on he suffered against Seattle in December of 2012.

“I think it was a little less than that,” he said.

It is the 49ers first trip back to the Superdome since losing in the Super Bowl to the Baltimore Ravens.

“It’s a whole other game. The situation is different,” Davis said on Tuesday evening. “We’re playing for a spot in the playoffs at the moment.”
