With San Francisco taking Week 8 off as its bye, you can be assured that there was no player more thrilled with the timing than the 49ers' most prolific tight end, Vernon Davis.
“I think the bye week was a great opportunity for me to try and work on a couple of things and get healthy,” Davis told reporters on Thursday. “It was pretty good for me overall.”
Davis said his speed has returned this week at practice. Greg Roman also has witnessed a determined pass-catcher.
“He’s got a very focused glare when it comes to what he wants to accomplish from here on out,” the team’s offensive coordinator said.
Davis is currently our #12 TE for Week 9. He hasn't done much since Week 1 thanks to a few nagging injuries, most recently a back injury. He should perform better down the stretch.
