49ers' Davis, Willis questionable vs. Rams
By Bill Williamson
ST. LOUIS – I have arrived here for Thursday night’s San Francisco 49ers-St. Louis Rams game, to predictable 49ers injury news.
Both tight end Vernon Davis (hamstring) and linebacker Patrick Willis (groin) are listed as questionable for the game. Davis, who missed Sunday’s loss to the Colts, is more likely to play than Willis, who was hurt in the third quarter. Davis practiced on a limited basis the past two days. Willis did not practice this week; he and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio nevertheless expressed hope he would play.
Both will be game-time decisions Thursday. Nnamdi Asomugha, the No. 3 cornerback, is also listed as questionable with a knee injury he suffered Sunday. He hasn't practiced all week.
Backup running back LaMichael James, meanwhile, was not on the injury report Wednesday. He has missed all three games this season with a knee injury. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Tuesday that James will likely be a game-time decision. If he doesn’t play, it will most likely be because he is a healthy scratch.
