49ers Injury Report: Vernon Davis, Tramaine Brock, Anthony Davis

By on 10/13/2014 08:00:00 AM

The San Francisco 49ers will have a chance for their straight victory when they take on the St. Louis Rams on “Monday Night Football,” but could be without a few starters:

Cornerback Tramaine Brock has already been ruled out of the contest with a toe injury that has kept him sidelined since the first game of the season. Perrish Cox will likely start in place of Brock again alongside Chris Culliver.

San Francisco has no other players officially listed as out, but will have a few game-time decisions. Tight end Vernon Davis was able to participate in limited practice with a back injury that kept him out of last week's game, but is listed as questionable.

Right tackle Anthony Davis is also listed as questionable with knee and ankle injuries. Davis has only appeared in part of one game this season due to various injuries, with the inconsistent Jonathan Martin taking his place.

Backup center Marcus Martin is questionable with a knee injury, meaning San Francisco could be a little short on depth on Monday. Backup linebacker Nick Moody will also be a game-time decision with a hamstring injury.

The 49ers have quite a few other players with nagging injuries, but all are listed as probable and should play. Defensive linemen Ray McDonald (knee), Ian Williams (ankle) and Tony Jerod-Eddie were all limited in practice earlier in the week before returning at full participation on Saturday.

Cornerback Chris Cook was limited in the week with a quadriceps injury. Punter Andy Lee is also dealing with an ankle injury, but should be able to play.

Even with the injuries, San Francisco will be a heavy favorite, but could get a tough fight from a division rival playing at home and will need to get healthy before a showdown with the Denver Broncos next week.
