| Vernon Davis optimistic he will return Week 4 -- Tue Sep 23 4:00 pm --|
"It's going to be a great week for me"
|Vernon Davis' crutches were gone, and so was his limp, as he looked ready Tuesday to return to a 49ers team that historically can't win without him. An ankle injury kept the typically durable Davis out of last Sunday's 23-14 collapse at Arizona. (San Jose Mercury News)|
FF Today's Take: The 49ers waived practice squad tight end Asante Cleveland which is good sign that Davis and/or Vance McDonald (knee) will be available in Week 4.

|Itís doubtful 49ers star TE Vernon Davis (bruised ankle) will play today vs. #Cardinals Iím told. He was on crutches until Thursday. (Ian Rapaport via Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: This has been the feeling all along this week. With Davis out and backup TE Vance McDonald battling a knee injury, third-string tight end Derek Carrier will likely draw the start and be a TE2 in Week 3.
| Vernon Davis still on crutches -- Wed Sep 17 4:46 pm --|
Deep ankle bruise
|The 49ers began practice today with just one healthy tight end from their 53-man roster, Derek Carrier. The other two, Vernon Davis (ankle) and Vance McDonald (knee), were working out in the teamís weight room. Davis emerged using the same crutches he was seen using after Sundayís loss to the Bears. Earlier in the day, Jim Harbaugh said the team ďdodged a bulletĒ with Davisí injury, which occurred when he was tackled awkwardly from behind in the fourth quarter. Still, itís unknown whether the teamís top tight end will be ready in time for Sundayís game against Arizona. He has a deep bruise on his ankle, a source said.
FF Today's Take: It's still possible that Davis plays this weekend so fantasy owners should keep a close eye on the final practice reports this week before making any changes to their lineup. Meanwhile, Davis' backup, Vance McDonald, is also dealing with a knee injury that may keep him out this week. Derek Carrier was inserted late in the game Sunday night and could be in line for considerable work if the 49ers' other options are unable to suit up for Week 3.

FF Today's Take: Backup tight end Vance McDonald injured his knee in the first half and was limited the rest of the game. Derek Carrier filled in with 3 catches for 41 yards.
