TE - FA - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Washington tight end Vernon Davis has been ruled out for Week 9 with lingering effects from a concussion.
In what looks to be a much tougher concussion protocol around the league, Vernon Davis has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills. Jeremy Sprinkle remains the team's top tight end in his absence.
Vernon Davis has been ruled out ahead of Thursday night's game against the Vikings due to his concussion.
Davis was a limited participant all week, indicating that he could be ready to return following the extended time off ahead of Week 9. While he hasn't been fantasy-relevant this year given Washington's struggles and his own injury issues, he could develop into a streaming option at a shallow tight end position if he's able to return to full health.
Tight end Vernon Davis has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Vernon Davis has been ruled out for the second consecutive week due to a concussion. With Jordan Reed placed on IR, Jeremy Sprinkle is expected to soak up the majority of the tight end snaps. He disappointed with just 44 percent of the snaps in Week 5, but appears to have a prime matchup for production against a hapless Dolphins defense.
Washington tight end Vernon Davis is inactive for the team's Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots as he continues to work his way through the concussion protocol.
Davis was already filling in for Jordan Reed, who is out indefinitely with his own concussion issues, so Washington is down to Jeremy Sprinkle and Jerome Cunningham at the tight end position this week.
Tight end Vernon Davis has entered the league's concussion protocol, and is in danger of missing Week 5 against New England.
Vernon Davis missing game action would mean Washington is down to its third string tight end in Jeremy Sprinkle. Sprinkle has just five receptions on the season, but could be in for a massive role against New England with Colt McCoy expected to be under center. He will make for a solid bye week filler addition if Davis misses any time.
