According to reports, RG Anthony Davis did not make the trip to Carolina because he suffered an apparent concussion. What does this mean for the San Francisco 49ers?

Well, not very much.

Against the Los Angeles Rams, Davis did not do much. Although he was active, he remained behind starting RG Andrew Tiller,  for the entirety of the game, other than the final few snaps when the 49ers were trying to run out the clock.

The offensive line was, for the most part, fantastic against the Rams. Even without Davis, who took a year off to become the best tackle in the league, was a non-factor in the 49ers’ week 1 game. When Tiller was absent for four snaps due to injury, C Marcus Martin filled in for him. This shows that the 49ers don’t rely too much on Davis to be healthy.

Now that Davis is injured, LG Joshua Garnett, a first round draft pick, will get the opportunity to showcase his talent. In a vastly improved offensive line, Garnett should get a few snaps to be able to prove his worth; he was inactive for week 1 against the Rams.

Davis, who was just another addition to the improved offensive line, began having “misgivings” about playing right guard, eventually trying to switch back to right tackle. With this concussion and lack of use in week 1, he has now become very expendable, as he hasn’t had a chance to demonstrate his skills. Was his move to right guard ever the correct choice?
