With Carlos Hyde doubtful to play Sunday, Davis is next on the depth chart, but he could split the duties with Shaun Draughn and DuJuan Harris, CSN Bay Area reports.

Davis projects to see the bulk of early-down work Sunday, as his skill set resembles that of an every-down back moreso than those of Shaun Draughn or DuJuan Harris. While none of the 49ers' running backs are "must-starts" against a stout Tampa Bay rush defense, Davis is the most appealing option and would likely see any goal-line carries that present themselves Sunday.
