SANTA CLARA -- Right tackle Anthony Davis sustained a concussion on the 49ers’ final offensive snap of the team’s victory over the New York Giants.
Davis is going through the NFL’s concussion protocol this week, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed on Wednesday. Davis must pass the protocol in order to return to practice, then play in the 49ers' game Sunday against Washington.
Davis wrote on Twitter that he was briefly knocked out on the 49ers’ first play after the two-minute warning, a 5-yard run play on third and 7. The Giants did not have any timeouts remaining.
“I remember waking up to Harbaugh saying "get him up and off the field!, We don't want the clock to stop!” Davis wrote on Twitter.
Harbaugh confirmed he yelled to get Davis off the field, but did not know the severity of Davis’ condition until he reached the sideline and the team’s medical staff diagnosed him with a concussion.
Because the clock did not stop, Andy Lee punted the ball with 1:22 remaining, and the Giants took over at their own 15-yard line with 1:09 remaining.
