SANTA CLARA – Tight end Vernon Davis is scheduled to return to practice on Friday after missing two days of on-field work due to a knee injury.
“We’ll see how he’s moving around,” 49ers coach Jim Tomsula said. “(He) feels good enough to get him out there, so we’ll see. I don’t want to make any proclamation.”
UPDATE: Davis took part in some warmup drills on the field before practice but went to the weight room to continue his rehab as practice starts. Davis' lack of practice time this week appears to place his status for Sunday's game in doubt.
The 49ers play Sunday against the unbeaten Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium.

The 49ers also expect running back Reggie Bush to be completely healthy for Sunday’s game after he went through full practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Bush has sat out the past two games after sustaining a calf strain in the season opener on Sept. 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.
When asked how Bush’s absence impacted the offense the past two games, Tomsula said, “We don’t’ have any excuses like that. We’re not handicapped. We haven’t been handicapped.”
Linebacker NaVorro Bowman was given a veteran day off on Wednesday. He and Eric Reid (hip) were limited in Thursday's practice. Both players are expected to be on the field for Friday's practice.
