Fooch's Update: Anthony Davis is officially ACTIVE

We have an early indication that Anthony Davis is likely to be active for the San Francisco 49ers Week 4 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. We'll get final confirmation at around 11:55 a.m. PT, but in the meantime, Maiocco reported this:

The 49ers run through specific routines, and one such routine involves the practice squad and inactive players. This early work indicates Farrell will be inactive. The only question mark at offensive line this weekend was Anthony Davis, so Farrell's potential deactivation would have to mean Davis would be active.

Assuming this plays out as such, my guess is Davis moves right back into the starting lineup. There is no guarantee given the 49ers kept Alex Boone sidelined his first week active. However, Davis's situation has involved a steady rehab progress, so I have to think he'll be in at right tackle. That moves Jonathan Martin out of the starting lineup. Martin would seemingly operate as the swing tackle, while Looney would be the primary backup at guard and center.
