In his standard Monday afternoon news conference, 49ers coach Mike Singletary threw out a bit of interesting information – TE Vernon Davis will have an MRI on his knee.
To the transcript:
On whether Davis’ knee injury happened on his touchdown:
“I think so. I’m not certain about that but I think so.”
On whether Davis returned to the game after his injury :
“I think he did.”
On whether he considers Davis’ injury serious:
“We just want to make sure we’re smart about it and get the MRI and make sure everything’s stable.”
After catching the 17-yard TD pass, Davis underwent a precautionary exam on his head, neck and shoulder. He eventually returned to the game. Perhaps they should have checked his knee as well.
If the 49ers lose Davis for any significant time, that’s … well … it’s not a good thing. But for now, it sounds like the MRI is strictly precautionary.
