by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis was unable to practice Wednesday.

(9/16/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has avoided a significant ankle injury and could play Week 3 against the Cardinals, a source told CSNBayArea.com. Davis underwent an MRI Monday, which revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage to his left ankle, the source added.

Vernon Davis undergoing MRI Monday

Vernon Davis suffers ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis suffered an ankle injury in the second half against the Bears and did not return. Davis was dragged down from behind after making his third catch.

He caught all three of his targets for 39 yards. The severity of his injury was unclear.


Vernon Davis scores twice Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis found the end zone twice Week 1 against the Cowboys. 

Davis played a big role early. On the team's first drive, Colin Kaepernick found his tight end for a 29 yard score. The second drive produced more of the same. With the 49ers on the two-yard line, Kaepernick again found Davis for the score. Davis' first two catches went for touchdowns.

Davis had a 6-yard catch in the second quarter, and then didn't catch his fourth pass until the final quarter. Davis nearly had a big 32 yard reception late, but the play was wiped out by a questionable offensive pass interference penalty.

Davis finished with 4 catches for 44 yards and two scores. He'll take on the Bears Week 2.


Vernon Davis ready to put up some big numbers Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis is ready to put up some numbers Week 1 against the Cowboys.

With the weapons the 49ers brought in during the offseason, there’s some thought Davis might see his touchdown total decrease. While that may be the case over the course of the season, he should still be a focal point in this offense.

Davis is set up for success Week 1 against Dallas. The Cowboys ranked as one of the worst defenses in the league last season. The club allowed 9.00 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. That figure ranked as the fourth-worst in the league. 

With Michael Crabtree dealing with a calf issue, Davis could be even more of a focus for San Francisco. The tight end obviously has a great rapport with Colin Kaepernick, particularly in the end zone. With that in mind, Davis is a must-start Week 1. 


Vernon Davis 'looks faster than ever'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is having a great camp, according to coach Jim Harbaugh. "On his assignments. In great shape. Doing just one heck of a job," Harbaugh said.

Added quarterback Colin Kaepernick: "He looks faster than ever. Been running really clean routes. Been mentally on top of everything and I think everyone’s happy with what he’s doing right now."


Vernon Davis still seeking new contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Although he reported for training camp, 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is "definitely" not O.K. with his current contract, reports Pro Football Talk. The website suggests Davis might have reported after getting the team to waive fines he incurred for skipping minicamp.

The 49ers reportedly won't negotiate with players who hold out -- another possible reason Davis showed up, the report said.


Vernon Davis reports to training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, a potential holdout due to his unhappiness with his contract, reported to training camp, teammate C.J. Spillman tweeted. Davis skipped a mandatory minicamp in June and earlier voluntary workouts in a bid to get his contract reworked.

Report: Vernon Davis leaning toward holdout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) A source told Pro Football Talk that as of now, 49ers tight end Vernon Davis won't report to training camp. Davis is unhappy with his contract and showed it by skipping the offseason program.

Vernon Davis not stressing over contract


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis said he isn't losing sleep over his contract situation, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"It hasn't been difficult at all," Davis said. "There are no worries. There is nothing that I can stress about. It’s obvious that we want a new contract. I want a new contract. It's just like any athlete, we all want a new contract. But I'm not going to stress over it. It’s not the end of the world if I don't get it. If I get it, that’s good. It’s moving slowly, but surely. At the end of the day, if I don't get the deal, at least I tried and I put my foot down. If I don’t get it at the moment, I'm not going to lose any sleep."

Davis is hoping Saints tight end Jimmy Graham wins his case to be designated a receiver, which will help his cause.

"I pray that Jimmy Graham passes as a wide receiver. Because at the end of the day, if he passes as a wide receiver, that’s better for the rest of the tight ends," Davis said. "He will have opened up a door, a pathway for the rest of the group."


Vernon Davis not at minicamp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis did not show up for the start of Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, reports ESPN.

Davis is expected to hold out with the hopes of getting a new contract. He previously said he would attend the mandatory minicamp, but he is taking a stand in hopes of getting a raise.


Vernon Davis explains holdout


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis wrote a column for Sports Illustrated and explained his reason for a potential upcoming holdout.

"In 2010 I signed a five-year, $37 million contract extension with $23 million guaranteed. It was the biggest contract for a tight end in league history," Davis wrote. "Four years later, and I'm playing at a higher level than I was then, which brings me to why I'm holding out. It’s all about getting paid what you deserve. It's not that complicated.

"I want the 49ers to win the Super Bowl, and I want to be on the field this summer working toward that goal, but I have to worry about my future first. Most of my teammates and many players in the NFL understand that. A few don't. Behind closed doors, they'll say they're all about the team and would run through a brick wall for the organization. But when you look closer, they're doing things to contradict themselves. I can't listen to anyone but my family and my advisors, because those are the people who are going to be there when football inevitably dumps me."


Vernon Davis says he'll attend minicamp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Tight end Vernon Davis said he'll participate in the 49ers mandatory minicamp later on in June, he told ESPN on Thursday. Davis has reportedly been unhappy with his contract and skipped OTAs already, though he said he never voiced his displeasure with his deal. Davis has two years left on it. 

"If it's mandatory, I think I should be there," Davis said of attending OTAs. "Everyone was just assuming I wanted a new contract. I just take it one day at a time. If they offer me a new contract, I'll gladly take it. I'll accept it."


Vernon Davis watching Graham case


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis on Wednesday admitted he was watching Jimmy Graham's contract situation closely, reports the Sacramento Bee. Davis is hopeful Graham gets a huge raise no matter how his dispute is settled over being designated a tight end or a receiver.

Davis hasn't taken part in the 49ers offseason workouts because he wants a new contract. He said if Graham gets a huge raise, especially if he's getting paid wide receiver money, then Davis is hopeful of a new deal as well.

"You know what? I'm a tight end. I'm a tight end. But I must say, if it happens, then I'm sure every tight end's going to try to follow behind Jimmy Garham," Davis said, per the report. "But my role is to play the tight end position. I do everything they tell me to do."

Davis said last week he wasn't sure whether he would miss this month's mandatory minicamp. All of the workouts thus far have been voluntary, though Davis did forfeit a $200,000 workout bonus by skipping them.


Report: Absent Vernon Davis wants new contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is skipping OTAs because he's unhappy with his contract, reports CSNBayArea.com. Davis, who has two years left on his deal, is forfeiting a $200,000 workout bonus with his absence.

Davis' contract pays him $7.35 million annually, which puts him third among tight ends behind Rob Gronkowski ($8 million) and Jason Witten ($7.4 million), the report said.


Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Vernon Davis confronts commissioner about health care


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, working with Monday Morning Quarterback, asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a press conference why players are not offered lifetime health benefits considering the effects of head injuries, per the Boston Globe.

Goodell responded that the current benefits are the "best in the world."


Vernon Davis held in check by Seattle's secondary


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was not much of a factor in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Davis was not able to overcome Seattle's physical play, and was held without a grab through the first three quarters. He caught a 5-yard pass in his team's first offensive series in the fourth quarter, and then came down with an 11-yard pass with under a minute remaining in the game. On the next play, Colin Kaepernick was picked off by Michael Smith with 22 seconds remaining.

Davis was limited to only two catches for 16 yards in a 23-17 defeat.
