It’s all smiles in San Francisco after the 49ers, in a somewhat surprising affair, steamrolled the Los Angeles Rams 28-0 in a Monday night rout.
The contest was so lopsided that Anthony Davis saw action to cap off a bizarre week for the offensive lineman.
Davis reportedly contemplated retirement for a second time leading up to San Francisco’s Week 1 game, but opted to remain with the Niners and participated at Sunday’s practice.
The offensive lineman played during the final three snaps in Monday’s win.
“There was just a miscommunication, but he was back on Sunday and he had a real good Sunday for us and was good today,” 49ers coach Chip Kelly said, according to CSNBayArea.com. “Got a chance to get a couple snaps in there at the end.”
Monday marked the first time Davis did not start at right tackle. The sixth-year lineman played right tackle in the waning moments against the Rams, but is expected to replace Andrew Tiller in the starting lineup at right guard.
It appears as though Davis, who sat out all last season to give his body a chance to heal, is becoming accustomed to football again after moments of indecisiveness prior to the team’s opener.
“It was just a miscommunication,” Kelly said. “I had a long talk with Anthony on Saturday and everything has been ironed out. He’s good to go. It was a miscommunication between myself and Anthony and we don’t have a miscommunication any longer.”
