Vernon Davis just has a deep ankle bruise

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Vernon Davis left Sunday night’s game on crutches, but he could be back on his feet soon.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, Davis avoided a serious ankle injury and could be back as soon as Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

An MRI yesterday revealed a deep bruise, but no structural damage.

Davis wasn’t able to return to the game after being rolled by Bears linebacker Jon Bostic. That left them thin, with backup tight end Vance McDonald suffering a knee injury and Derek Carrier is the only healthy tight end on the roster.

Fantasy Impact: 

Davis wasn’t able to return to the game after being rolled by Bears linebacker Jon Bostic. That left them thin, with backup tight end Vance McDonald suffering a knee injury and Derek Carrier is the only healthy tight end on the roster. Keep an eye on his progress this week. Davis has a potentially good matchup against the Cards who struggle to defend the TE. Since it's a late afternoon game, owners will still need a backup plan in place in case Davis can't go.
