Washington finally placed tight end Vernon Davis on injured reserve.

The move came Friday as the team called up defensive lineman Ryan Bee from the practice squad, JP Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com reports.

Bee’s promotion adds more doubt to Daron Payne’s status for Sunday. Washington lists Payne as doubtful with an ankle injury after he missed practice all week.

Davis’ season ends with 10 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. He was diagnosed with a concussion in Week Four and has not played since.

He turns 36 in January and becomes a free agent in March, so Davis’ football future is in serious doubt.

  1. He’s 36, made a lot of money even after he was forced into a backup role, and coming off a bad concussion. Seems like a good time to retire. I wonder what happened with that investment scheme where you could buy stock in his future salary? I don’t think he earned much of that 1 big deal he signed (Arian Foster was another one) and I’m curious if he has to live off that one lump sum from back then or how that works out.

  2. He’s still one of the 32 best TEs when healthy, no hyperbole (and I don’t view my Skins through rose colored glasses at all, probably just the opposite). If he’s done it’s because of the concussion, not the ability.
