Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis didn't catch a pass Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: How can a player with his talent level be playing so poorly all season? Davis remains the biggest bust among tight ends in 2014 and shouldn't be started. Since a two-touchdown opening game, Davis hasn't cracked the five-point mark.

Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was targeted five times Sunday, catching three of them.
Insight: Davis posted his first multi-catch game since Week 9. That's not saying much and he's still not fantasy worthy after a three-catch, 21-yard afternoon.

Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis (ankle) has officially been declared out today against Arizona.

Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis (ankle) was walking around in the locker room without crutches, but he was still "hobbling around." according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.
Insight: It looks like he will miss his second straight practice. At least Davis did not need his crutches, but it still does not look promising that he will play in Week 3 against the Cardinals. With Vance McDonald (knee) also nursing an injury, third-year undrafted free agent Derek Carrier is in line to start at tight end.
