San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (elbow) suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, Feb. 3, but returned to the game.
Huddle Up: The injury nor the Ravens could slow Davis down as he matched Ravens' WR Anquan Boldin with a game-high 6 catches for 104 yards -- topping the century mark for the fourth time in five career postseason games.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and he is officially listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: It's not looking good for Davis to play Sunday. He must pass a simulated contact test before receiving final clearance to take the field against the Cardinals. If we don't find out the results Saturday we'll head into a game-time decision Sunday before kickoff.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) should be available for the team's Week 17 game.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the head injury TE Vernon Davis' suffered Sunday night was minor.
Huddle Up: Davis reportedly suffered a concussion, and in the NFL of 2012, there's nothing minor about that. Expect a bevy of tests this week for Davis as he attempts to return for the regular-season finale.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis suffered a concussion in the first quarter of the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks and did not return.
Huddle Up: The lost late-season continued for Davis, who had one grab for 27 yards in the game, giving him only 5 receptions for 56 yards over his past 5 contests. Even if he's able to give a go in Week 17, fantasy GMS are strongly advised to explore other options at the position.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis is having to rebuild chemistry with QB Colin Kaepernick. 'That's something me and Kap don't have right now,' said Davis, who was held to one catch in Week 15. 'We don't have it. You have to expect (that because) he just stepped in. Me and Alex - we've been there. It takes time. It took time for me and Alex to get like that.' Davis has had only four catches and 29 yards in four games since Kaepernick's debut, in which Davis had a season-high six receptions for 86 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: It's most definitely been a slow process, and it's likely not going to bear fruit for Davis' fantasy owners over the the regular season's final 2 games. In the meantime, fellow TE Delanie Walker has actually outperformed Davis during the past 4 games, hauling in 7 passes for 137 yards and a TD over that span.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis was targeted just once in the Week 12 game against the New Orleans Saints, and he went without a catch in the victory.
Huddle Up: Davis has been an unwavering supporter of deposed 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, so you have to wonder if there's a connection between Davis' relationship with Smith and his lack of looks from Colin Kaepernick--or vice versa. It's already been tough to trust Davis, who only recently ended a two-month touchdown drought, with a fantasy start; the doughnut certainly won't help matters.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis had six receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Davis hadn't scored since Week 3 and had recorded only 6 receptions for 64 yards over his past 3 games, but was involved early Monday night and was a primary weapon for first-time starting QB Colin Kaepernick. Don't expect a TD every week out of Davis going forward, but don't look for any more prolonged scoring droughts, either.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis said he's fine with his decreased workload and lack of productivity lately. 'Yes. Definitely,' Davis said. '(It's) easy to accept when you're winning because you're winning. And we're getting somewhere, getting toward the playoffs.' Davis had his fourth straight game with less than 40 yards receiving in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Davis may say he's OK with his current workload, but his fantasy owners certainly aren't. After catching 4 TD passes over the season's first 3 weeks, Davis hasn't found the end zone since and only has 16 receptions over that 6-game span. If you need more production out of the position, it's time to make a move.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis will face the St. Louis Rams in Week 10, and he could be in line for a big week. The Rams have allowed the 10th-most yards to opposing tight ends through Week 9 this season. Davis has been limited to five catches for 71 yards over his past three games, and his 58-game streak with at least one reception ended during that time.
Huddle Up: Davis also hasn't scored since Week 3, so he's way past due for a big fantasy game.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis posted two receptions for 34 yards in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: After notching 4 TDs on 13 receptions over his opening 3 games, Davis has cooled considerably with 12 catches and no scores in the 5 games since. Do what you need to do during the Niners' bye this week, but it would be a big mistake to hastily dump Davis given his track record (30 TDs since the start of the 2009 season) over the past 3 and half campaigns.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis didn't catch a pass Thursday night in a 13-6 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Even more shocking, Davis wasn't even targeted in the contest which featured only 1 TD -- a 12-yard scoring reception by fellow TE Delanie Walker. It was the first time Davis has gone without a catch in a game since Week 13 in 2008 against the Bills. Davis came into the night with 23 catches for 340 yards and 4 TDs.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 28, and is probable for Week 4.
