49ers tackle Anthony Davis progressing from concussion

Niners right tackle Anthony Davis was able to drive home following a cross-country flight from New York last month despite feeling “loopy” from a concussion he didn't initially realize was so severe.

“After the game, adrenalin's still pumping. You're just a little loopy,” Davis said, sitting at his locker Thursday.

Davis is still experiencing symptoms, though he wouldn't specify except to say “not 100 percent.”

He said he took an elbow to the head during the Nov. 16 victory over the New York Giants. Davis hasn't played in two games since, and leaves a big void on the 49ers' offensive line. His status for Sunday's game against the Raiders is unclear, though considering Davis hasn't practiced, it would appear to be a long shot. He did lift weights and do cardio work Wednesday as he checked off a step in the concussion protocol to be medically cleared to return.

“He took a step forward yesterday,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Thursday.

Said Davis: “It was good. I felt like part of the team again.”

Niners owner John York has been active on the NFL Owners Health and Safety Advisory Committee, and recently spoke to Davis in passing.

“The only thing he said was 'Be smart about it, make sure I'm 100 percent,'” Davis said.
