49ers TE Vernon Davis Limited, Status For Sunday Still Up In The Air
Vernon Davis is anxious to get back on the field with the San Francisco 49ers and help them build momentum for the playoffs during Sunday's regular-season finale against Arizona but has yet to be cleared to play first.
Davis practiced in a non-contact black jersey for the second consecutive day Friday and is taking the necessary steps, according to NFL-mandated protocol, to return from a concussion he sustained during last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Davis was hurt in the first quarter after absorbing a crushing hit from safety Kam Chancellor that dislodged the football from Davis near the goal line. Davis left the game after that play and did not return.
Chancellor was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play, and Davis said Friday the hit was ''brutal'' and one of the hardest he ever has taken in seven NFL seasons. Davis, who gained clearance from an independent neurologist and the 49ers' team physician to resume non-contact activity Thursday, could be cleared to play if he passes the final step in protocol - contact simulation - before Sunday's game.
''Tomorrow he'll go through the final progression,'' 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday. ''He's on course, but that's something the doctors have full control over.''
