Offensive tackle Anthony Davis, whose NFL comeback wobbled two days before the 49ers’ season opener, retired on Monday for the second time in 15 months, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Davis, 26, abruptly left the game last year and sat out the 2015 season for health reasons. He returned for the most recent training camp seemingly reinvigorated and ready to resume his career. But he had second thoughts on the eve of the 49ers’ first game against the Rams and then, according to the team, suffered a concussion in practice a few days later. Reporters did not witness the injury because the full sessions are not open to the media
Davis hadn’t practiced or been in uniform since then.
The 49ers’ starting tackles are Joe Staley on the left and Trent Brown on the right. The offensive line has allowed only two sacks this year — tied with the Raiders and Jets for fewest so far — after giving up an NFC-worst 53 sacks a year ago.
