Tuesday Niner News & Notes - Sept. 25th

TE Davis likely out two games

Ron Kroichick, San Francisco Chronicle

Vernon Davis sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee on the play, an MRI exam revealed Monday. He probably will miss the next two games, the team announced, removing a key option from an offense already struggling to reach the end zone.Davis caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's 37-16 loss to Pittsburgh, in the first game after he requested a more prominent role in the offense. Now, as the 49ers prepare for home games against Seattle and Baltimore the next two weeks, Davis' injury temporarily leaves him with no role in the offense.The 49ers trailed 17-6 when Davis corralled Smith's pass near the Pittsburgh 10-yard line; he landed awkwardly after a crunching tackle and the ball popped loose. Steelers safety Ryan Clark plucked the ball out of the air and ran to San Francisco's 47-yard line.
Nolan challenged the call - and clearly was angry when Austin turned the play into an incomplete pass, rather than a completion and 49ers first down.

The 49ers (2-1) opened the game showing far more offensive creativity than in their first two games. Smith rolled out several times against the Pittsburgh defense and operated out of the shotgun on several other plays. Offensive coordinator Jim Hostler also got Davis involved for the first time this season. He went 31 yards on a catch and run in the first quarter and finished with 56 receiving yards before leaving in the third quarter. Davis was limping noticeably after the game but said he didn't think the injury was serious. The 49ers finished with 289 total yards after averaging 190 yards in their first two games. Still, they had trouble finding the end zone, settling for three Nedney field goals before Smith found Taylor Jacobs on a 21-yard touchdown when the game was out of reach.

"Red zone killed us," Hostler said. "We're not putting points on the board. We've got to get that (rectified)."
