Anthony Davis injury update: Walking with limp but no cane, crutches; says injury not serious

New, comments

The 49ers are awaiting word on the status of right tackle Anthony Davis. He suffered an injury to his knee and ankle on Sunday against the Eagles. He had an MRI and was spotted on Tuesday with a limp but no cane or crutches.

San Francisco 49ers right tackle underwent an MRI on his knee and ankle, and does not believe the injury serious. Davis was expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, but it sounds like the swelling in his knee had not come down completely. The wait is necessary to get a clearer look at the knee, and any potential damage.

The beat writers spotted Davis during locker room availability, and he was walking with a limp, but was not using a cain or crutches. Davis injured his knee on Sunday when Colin Kaepernick was sacked into him. Kap rolled over his ankle and knee, sending Davis to the ground. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but he had a limp. When the players were departing the stadium, he was observed using a cane.

It is hard to tell exactly what "serious" entails, but this does not guarantee he will not miss some time. The 49ers will provide their first injury report Wednesday afternoon. I would be surprised if Davis participated in practice. We'll find out if he perhaps sprained an MCL or PCL. Such a sprain can cost a player a few games at least, but again, we don't know exactly where that stands. We don't know if he'll miss any games, but it is important to take a measured approach to the news until we know for certain where his knee is at.
