49ers | Vernon Davis working with WRs
Sun, 28 Jul 2013 19:02:18 -0700
San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis has been lining up as a wide receiver during the early part of training camp, although he didn't see much work there Sunday, July 28. "I'm willing to step up and do whatever they ask me to do," Davis said. "They've been having me work with the wide receivers, line up with the wide receivers, pretty much all over the place."
With Michael Crabtree (Achilles') out indefinitely, and Mario Manningham (knee) slow to recover from an injury, the team is not as deep at wide receiver heading into the preseason. The team has capable, albeit young, tight ends in Vance McDonald and Garrett Celek, so Davis could very well split wide during the early going.
