49ers-Giants injury report: Ahmad Brooks listed as doubtful, several Giants defensive players out

New, comments

We break down the 49ers and Giants injury reports as they prepare for their Week 5 matchup.

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants released their final injury reports on Friday. We got into some of the details of the 49ers report Friday afternoon, but I wanted to make sure I posted the whole thing today.

Vernon Davis was the biggest surprise. He was limited in practice all week, but apparently the pain issues remained. Jim Tomsula said it was more of a pain tolerance issue than a structural issue in his knee. I have no idea how much pain he may or may not be in, so I can't come right out and say, "Well, he's soft." He very well may be, but I've never really been comfortable commenting on the toughness of most football players.

Ahmad Brooks is listed as doubtful, but nobody expects him to play. His agent said he would not play, but my guess is the 49ers want to leave open the opportunity for him to change his mind. If he were listed as out, he would not be allowed to play on Sunday. By listing him as doubtful, they leave open the chance for him to change his mind this weekend and re-join the team. If not, all indications are that he will re-join the team next week for the Ravens game.

Meanwhile, the Giants face questions on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive end Robert Ayers and linebacker Devon Kennard have both been ruled out
