The San Francisco 49ers will be without right tackle Anthony Davis this Sunday when they host Washington. Davis suffered a concussion at the end of last week's game against the New York Giants, and according to head coach Jim Harbaugh, he is still dealing with symptoms. He did not take part in practice this week, which means he could not work his way entirely through the concussion protocol.
Jonathan Martin will get the start in his place. Davis has dealt with several injuries this year, including this concussion, and knee and hamstring injuries. Martin has gotten quite a few starts this season, so he is not going in blind. He has been a bit up and down, but he has had solid moments. He will face Ryan Kerrigan this week, so he will dive right in against one of the better pass rushers in the league.
Glenn Dorsey is listed as out with a forearm injury. Jim Harbaugh would not say if it was the same as his injured reserve injury. He said Dorsey was getting a second opinion on it Thursday night, so we'll see what happens with it. On Thursday, Vic Fangio said Dorsey was still in a similar position to last week, so my guess is the injury listing is not something new, but rather just an extension of his injured reserve stay. I guess we'll find out in the coming weeks.
Tramaine Brock is listed as questionable, but he got in zero practice reps this week. Odds are pretty good he will not play, which means Dontae Johnson gets another look at the nickel spot, with Perrish Cox and Chris Culliver starting in the base defense.
We broke down the Washington injury report earlier Friday.
