Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com confirms 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh did not offer any timetable for Vernon Davis' return following his hamstring strain suffered against the Seahawks in Week 2:
Harbaugh did not have any injury updates on defensive lineman Ray McDonald or tight end Vernon Davis, both of whom were injured in the fourth quarter. X-rays on McDonald's ankle were negative, and Davis sustained a left hamstring strain. The 49ers will see how those players progress during the course of the practice week before determining their availability for Sunday's game.
UPDATE: Monday, Sept. 16
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com states Vernon Davis strained his hamstring against the Seahawks in Week 2:
... [Vernon] Davis exited with a hamstring strain – the third significant injury the 49ers sustained in the game.
Vernon Davis' injury capped off a miserable performance for the defending NFC champions at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The entire offense struggled as the Seahawks defense put the clamps down on Colin Kaepernick and Co.
Davis' production dropped off last season, catching 41 balls for 548 yards and five touchdowns after racking up at least 792 yards in each of his past three seasons.
But the former Pro Bowler was huge for the 49ers in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers this season, posting six catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the exhilarating 34-28 victory. He's been a secondary weapon for Kaepernick after Michael Crabtree tore his Achilles and was placed on the PUP list by the team.
The 49ers were stunned by the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday, one week after a resounding victory over Aaron Rodgers' Packers. The last thing they need is for Davis to miss significant time.
