Vernon Davis leaves with hamstring injury

The 49ers were without one of their most important offensive players for much of the fourth quarter of Sunday’s lopsided loss to Seattle.

Tight end Vernon Davis departed early in the period after suffering a hamstring injury. He was the intended target on Colin Kaepernick’s second interception of the game early in the fourth quarter. On the 49ers’ next drive, NBC’s Michelle Tafoya reported that Davis had ice on his leg and had been ruled out.

Davis caught three passes for 20 yards before leaving Sunday’s game. He hauled in six passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns in San Francisco’s Week One win against Green Bay.

Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek and Demarcus Dobbs are the 49ers’ other tight ends.

    You know there is all this hype about the great Hawks-Niners rivalry, but I don’t know. Is it really a rivalry if one team just beats the tar out of the other team everytime? I mean the 49ers aren’t very competitive. Maybe the rams or cards will be more of a challenge. 29-3, 42-13. GO HAWKS

    I figured he had to be hurt, on the Sherman INT, he made one of the lamest attempts I’ve seen to try and knock that ball away. its his job to make sure that ball doesn’t get picked off, and he gave such little effort, it would make sense if he hurt himself on that play or before that play and explains why It seemed like he flat out gave up.

    I’d say that’s a much better result then what got last year when he came to seattle.

    Maybe all that time whining about the packers could have been spent focusing on the seahawks.

    The 49ers, seahawks ,and packers, in that order, are very close. Alot closer than any of these teams would care to admin or on field action would suggest.

    Like Davis would of made a difference. Niners were absolutely dominated in every phase of the game.
    Seattle is in a different weight class. Niners were exposed, big time. Again.
