Chip Kelly on Anthony Davis: It was a miscommunication that’s been ironed out

49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis didn’t take part in the team’s practice on Saturday, a development that was followed by reports that Davis was thinking about walking away from the team for the second time since the end of the 2014 season.

It didn’t take long for Davis to decide to remain with the team and Davis was in uniform for the 49ers for Monday night’s 28-0 rout of the Rams. He played the final three snaps at right tackle in place of Trent Brown, although he’s been spending time at right guard since returning to the team this summer after sitting out the 2015 season. Coach Chip Kelly called on the uncertainty about Davis’ plans the result of miscommunication.

“It was just a miscommunication,” Kelly said, via CSNBayArea.com. “I had a long talk with Anthony on Saturday and everything has been ironed out. He’s good to go. It was a miscommunication between myself and Anthony and we don’t have a miscommunication any longer.”

Andrew Tiller started at right guard for the Niners, something Kelly said was his decision when faced with going up against “a pretty formidable front” with Davis just getting back on the field after his self-imposed layoff.

    As a Seahawks fan I love how the Rams are horrible, the Niners have guys who don’t even want to play pro football.

    Davis: “I want to play for another team, any team other than this one.”

    Kelly: “No, you’re stuck with us.”

    Miscommunication but “we don’t have it any longer”. Yeah, it sounds like Chip told Anthony the way it’s going to be.

    Translation: He realized the team is not as bad as predicted and now wants in.

    Read the rest of the CSN article. The big turd was benched for a better player. My guess is he threatened to retire again. Please do AD we can then activate our first round pick and build for the future

    Kelly seems to have had a lot of “miscommunication” with players since he has been in the NFL. Something tells me it’s him who needs to look in the mirror.

    Ive never actually met a Seahawks fan yet that knows anything about football……..

    Chip finally figured out you need talent on both sides of the ball? That, or he just inherited it – it’ll be next year when he completely annihilates the talent pool on defense.

    A. Davis is an odd duck. Nice enough guy & good player but he’s on then off, then off on a Twitter tangent, then off again about something else. I’m Thinking it’s best if the Niners find someone that want to play ball instead of his sideshow routine.

    That’s because you’re too stupid to figure out those are Claranette posers.

    Haha, “ironed out”. With an iron fist, I bet.

    Well, the twin attention divas, Kaepernick and Davis (two of the highest paid players on the team), got on the field for one series and moved the team 0 yards. Not quite as indispensable as they think they are.

    Chip Kelly and a player on his team had a “miscommunication” with each other?

    Naw, couldn’t be!

    Dude? Gabberts best pass was the one that deflected off of the Ram’s D lineman and back into his hands.

    There seem to be an awful lot of miscommunications in the world of Anthony Davis. And Chip Kelly, for that matter.
