Vernon Davis says he’ll be fine after suffering back spasms

The 49ers got tight end Vernon Davis back in the lineup for the start of their game against the Eagles after he missed Week Three, but Davis wasn’t able to make it all the way through the contest.

Davis was listed as questionable heading into the game with an ankle injury, but that wasn’t the injury that forced him out of the 26-21 Niners victory. Davis left after getting hit in the back by Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher following a catch and had to be helped to the back in what looked to be a fair amount of pain.

After the game, Davis said he experienced back spasms after the play and that he felt confident that all would be well enough for him to be on the field against the Chiefs next weekend.

“I’ll be good,” Davis said, via the San Francisco Chronice. “I’ll be fine.”

Davis had two catches for eight yards and helped the 49ers roll up some of their 218 rushing yards as a blocker before departing on Sunday. His status, along with that of right tackle Anthony Davis, will be closely monitored this week as the 49ers try to build on Sunday’s strong outing.
