49ers placed RT Anthony Davis on the reserve/retired list.
25-year-old Davis' plan is to resume his career after "a year or so." He's left his team in a bind, following LG Mike Iupati's free agent departure and with a massive amount of turnover throughout the roster and coaching staff. When Davis is ready to play again, the 49ers will maintain his rights. Jun 8 - 5:14 PM

"Retired" 49ers RT Anthony Davis tweeted Friday that he plans to return to football "in a year or so."

The Niners will maintain Davis' rights, and his contract will be "tolled" during his time away. "I'll be 26 or 27 years old," tweeted Davis, referring to his planned return to football. "I'm taking this time to allow my Brain and Body time to heal and recoup." Davis is currently under contract through 2019. He'll be under contract through 2020 after sitting out 2015.

49ers RT Anthony Davis announced his retirement from football for "a year or two."

Only 25 years old, Davis joins Chris Borland, Patrick Willis, and to a lesser extent Justin Smith in a string of unexpected 49ers retirements. A 2010 first-round pick, Davis was a mainstay at right tackle the last five seasons. He plans to "take a year or so away from the NFL," and left open the possibility of unretiring down the road. Losing Davis is a massive blow to a 49ers offensive line that lost Mike Iupati in free agency. Seventh-round pick Trent Brown, Bills castoff Erik Pears, and RG Alex Boone are candidates to take over at right tackle.

49ers RT Anthony Davis has been cleared to resume playing.

Davis has missed the 49ers' past four games, but finally gained full clearance. In addition to his concussion issues, Davis has also dealt with knee and hamstring problems this season, limiting him to five games. The five-year veteran had never missed a start before 2014.

49ers RT Anthony Davis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

49ers RT Anthony Davis (hamstring) is expected to return this week.

Wed, Sep 24, 2014 04:21:00 PM

The 49ers are "hopeful" RT Anthony Davis (hamstring) will resume practicing this week.

That "hope" comes after fill-in Jonathan Martin got embarrassed in Sunday night's loss. Even were Davis to be ready for Week 3, he'd likely be on a snap count after missing the entire preseason as he recovered from shoulder surgery.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 03:30:00 PM

49ers RT Anthony Davis (hamstring) is not expected to return for Week 2.

49ers RT Anthony Davis missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices with a hamstring injury.
