Anthony Davis had surgery for 'f---ed up' shoulder

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

49ers right tackle Anthony Davis posted a picture on Instagram detailing surgery he recently had for his left shoulder. We break down what it means moving forward.

Fooch's Update - Davis updated it:

The San Francisco 49ers are back at the facility conducting strength and conditioning work, as well as rehab for injured players. One player who would appear to be on the rehab side of things is offensive tackle Anthony Davis. The 49ers right tackle posted a picture on Instagram with the following caption:

I recently had surgery for the first time ever. Played the majority of the season with a f----- up shoulder. I hurt it against the Bucs. Never made excuses just got the job done. This game has a way of seeing what you're really made of. One of the reasons I love it. Next season I get to use both arms. lol it's on.

In the comments, he mentioned that it was labrum and bicep issue. Here is the picture:

If he hurt it against the Bucs, that means he went through all three playoff games with the issue. He didn't go into details as to why he had the surgery so recently, but he seems to suggest he'll be good to go before the season.

I don't think anyone has every doubted Davis's toughness. He's got a nastiness that is perfectly suited for offensive line work, and this toughness only adds to it. In his rookie year, we saw flashes of his potential, but we also saw a lot of inconsistency. In each subsequent year, we've seen improvement from Davis, and the 49ers have as well in locking him up to a long term deal.

The 49ers head into the 2014 season with four of their five offensive linemen returning. Daniel Kilgore will look to replace Jonathan Goodwin at center, but the biggest competitions will likely be for the reserve guard and tackle roles. Adam Snyder was the primary backup along the line, but the 49ers have numerous young options to compete with him. Jonathan Martin was acquired in a trade with the Dolphins, and will compete with Snyder, Luke Marquardt and Carter Bykowski for swing tackle work. Martin also might compete with Snyder, Joe Looney, Ryan Seymour and Al Netter for interior line work
