The 49ers are hopeful tight end Vernon Davis‘ absence will span just one game.
According to the club’s Twitter feed, head coach John Harbaugh said he was “optimistic” Davis would be able to suit up for Sunday’s matchup against 3-0 Philadelphia.
Davis exited the Week Two loss to Chicago with knee and ankle injuries. He was inactive for Sunday’s defeat at Arizona, as was second-string tight end Vance McDonald (knee).
He will make for a great play against an Eagles defense that gave up 500-plus yards to the Redskins in Week 3. The Birds will also likely be without LB Mychal Kendricks.
