49ers-Packers injury report: Vernon Davis doubtful, everyone else expected to play

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers each released their final injury reports for Week 4. There are no real surprises on the lists. Vernon Davis is listed as doubtful after missing all three practices this week. Last week, Reggie Bush was listed as doubtful before being downgraded on Saturday to out. Since the 49ers are not traveling this weekend, I could see them just waiting until Sunday and deactivating him.

Speaking of Bush, he is listed as probable after getting in a full week of practice. Bush missed the last two weeks with a calf strain, but he will be ready to go on Sunday. He joins Bruce Ellington who was dealing with an ankle injury. Getting the two of them back could prove to be a big boost for the 49ers offense. None of it matters if the offensive line sucks, but they provide unique skillsets that could help this offense get going with a bit more consistency.

Fingers crossed, but it'd be nice particularly to see Ellington get in the mix in the passing game. He has struggled to stay healthy in the NFL, but there is big play ability in those legs. The 49ers could use him in a variety of ways to keep the Packers defense guessing. We'll see if they actually do it.
