-- 49ers TE Injury Update - Vernon Davis May Play This Week --
Tue Sep 16, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) avoided a significant ankle injury and could be back on the field Sunday for the 49ers’ game against the Arizona Cardinals, a source said. Davis underwent an MRI examination on Monday that revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage to his left ankle, according to the source. Davis sustained the injury on a fourth-quarter play in which his foot got caught under Chicago Bears LB Jonathan Bostic at the end of Davis’ 8-yard reception. Davis did not return for the final 10 minutes of the game, and was seen on crutches in the 49ers’ locker room afterward. It is not known if Davis will participate in practices this week, as the 49ers prepare for a matchup against the NFC West’s only unbeaten team. The status of 49ers backup TE Vance McDonald (knee) is not known. McDonald sustained a right knee injury on RB Frank Gore’s second-quarter touchdown run that was nullified due to a penalty. McDonald was blocking DE Jared Allen when LB Shea McClellin rolled into the back of his leg after missing a tackle on Gore. McDonald returned briefly after the half but did not see any playing time in the fourth quarter. TE Derek Carrier is the only healthy tight end on the 49ers’ 53-man roster. He had the first three receptions of his NFL career for 41 yards in the 49ers’ 28-20 loss to the Bears.

Sat Sep 13, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The San Francisco 49ers official website reports 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (torn ACL - PUP) has taken a sizable step forward in his recovery from a torn ACL in his left knee. The San Francisco 49ers linebacker recently began sprinting, an activity that Jim Harbaugh has kept a keen eye on at practice. “I must admit there’s times when I look out of my peripheral vision and see them doing their workouts on the turf over there,” Harbaugh said on Friday. “It looked like he was moving pretty good, so that’s very positive.” Bowman is on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List and will be sidelined at least for the first six games of the season. The 49ers hope he can return at some point in the second half of the year.
