San Francisco 49ers starting right tackle Anthony Davis is out against the Seattle Seahawks after concussion symptoms stemming from an injury sustained in the team’s Nov. 16 win over the New York Giants have persisted, the team announced on Friday.
Davis has not played since Nov. 16, and has been unable to pass the NFL’s concussion protocol. The 6-foot-5, fifth-year pro had yet to miss an NFL game heading into the season after starting all 64 games of his career.
Second-year lineman Jonathan Martin figures to start in his place for Sunday’s matchup at CenturyLink Field. The loss will make an already-difficult task more challenging as San Francisco is fighting for its postseason life with every snap. Colin Kaepernick’s poor play of late coupled with the entire offense’s inability to move the chains will make any hope of an upset in the Pacific Northwest far-fetched.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh may be in his final days with the Gold Rush. Multiple reports around the league are giving the former Stanford leader his last rites in San Francisco after a tumultuous 2014 season.
