News: Davis (back) caught 2-of-5 targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Broncos. Impact: Davis once again couldn't get anything going, even though the 49ers were forced into a pass-heavy approach. Colin Kaepernick mostly honed in on his deep group of wide receivers, as Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd combined for 30 targets. Davis may still be a bit hobbled by the back and ankle injuries he's dealt with this season, as he has just 10 receptions for 98 yards and no touchdowns over the last four games, after posting a 4-44-2 receiving line in the season opener. He's averaging just 4.6 targets per game, in an offense that throws nearly half of its passes to either Crabtree or Boldin. While Davis should eventually get more involved, volume has often been an issue with him. The bye week should help his ailing back improve prior to the 49ers' next matchup against the Rams.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Impact: Davis was able to practice fully all week, a sign that he should healthy enough to see a full complement of snaps Sunday, barring any in-game setbacks.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 17, 2014
News: Davis (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Denver. Impact: Davis practiced fully all week, so he's turned a corner in his recovery. The 49ers will probably need to throw more aggressively than they're accustomed to if they're to keep pace with Peyton Manning, so this week seems to be one of Davis' more favorable matchups on paper so long as the 49ers don't need him to help pass block against Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 16, 2014
News: Davis (back) practiced in full Thursday, the 49ers' official site reports. Impact: Davis is as healthy as he has been since the start of the season and seems to be headed for a "probable" designation when the official injury designations are released Friday.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 15, 2014
News: Davis (back) practiced in full Wednesday, the Sacramento Bee reports. Impact: Davis was unhindered in practice for the first time since sustaining a bruised left ankle in Week 2. Along the way, back spasms started to afflict him, and he appeared in just two of four games during that stretch. As long as a setback is avoided, he should be active for a second consecutive outing Sunday in Denver, who have surrendered 10.5 YPC and two touchdowns to opposing tight ends through five contests.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 13, 2014
News: Davis (back) caught 3-of-6 targets for 30 yards in Monday's 31-17 win over the Rams. Impact: Davis made it through the game healthy but also missed some excellent opportunities. He dropped a pair of easy catches, including one in the flats that would have left him with just one defender to beat for a long gain. He also collided with Vance McDonald in the end zone on a play that saw both tight ends converge on the ball without any defender to break up the pass. After turning in just his second full game of the season, Davis will likely be ready for a tough road matchup at Denver next week.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 13, 2014
News: Davis is active against the St. Louis Rams after missing two of the previous three games with a back injury. Impact: Davis was limited all week in practice and had been questionable.(STATS, 6:38pm)
Mon. Oct 13, 2014
News: Davis (back) is active and will start Monday's game against the Rams. Impact: After missing Week 5's contest against the Chiefs, Davis is back in action, though it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent he'll be in his return, and how well he'll hold up in the process. To date, Davis, who turned in a two-TD effort in Week 1, has only finished one of the three games in which he's played thus far this season.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 11, 2014
News: Davis (back) is officially questionable for Monday's game against the Rams. Impact: Davis appears on track to return against St. Louis, despite being limited throughout the week by the back ailment. However, he was still sporting a non-contact jersey in Saturday's practice, and Davis left some wiggle room when asked about his status, telling Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times that he will decide Sunday if he can play. "I don't feel like I'm where I need to be at the moment but I'm getting there," Davis said.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 11, 2014
News: Davis (back) practiced in a non-contact jersey again Saturday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports. Impact: Although Davis was restricted from contact throughout the week, the report notes that he is likely to start Monday against the Rams, a sentiment echoed by CSN Bay Area. However, it's possible he could be on a snap count, and the Rams haven't given up more than 49 yards to a tight end all season.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Davis (back) is "on pace" to play in Monday's game against St. Louis after logging a limited practice for the second straight day Friday, CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Getting Davis back would be a nice reassurance for the fantasy value of Colin Kaepernick, and it might even help loosen up the coverage Michael Crabtree has seen lately. We'll want to see one more practice Saturday before advising his owners to take the Monday plunge, but the signs to this point are definitely encouraging.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Davis (back) logged a limited showing in Thursday's practice, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports. Impact: Davis' appearance in a no-contact jersey equated to a capped practice, as expected, but as the week unfolds, owners will have a better understanding of his Week 6 availability at St. Louis.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Davis (back) returned to practice in a no-contact jersey Thursday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: While the appearance likely implies a limited showing in drills, the development is nonetheless encouraging for Davis earning active status Monday in St. Louis. No matter, the week must proceed, with Saturday's injury report ultimately revealing his potential to take the field.(RotoWire, )
