Redskins' Vernon Davis: Set to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) plans to retire as an NFL player, ESPN's John Keim reports.

An official announcement to that effect is in line to be made later this month, but the 36-year-old -- who earlier in his career had a run as a quality fantasy tight end -- will call it quits after concussion symptoms limited him to just four games and 10 catches for 123 yards and a TD for Washington this past season. Tabbed No. 6 overall by the 49ers in the 2006 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-3, 248-pounder racked up 583 catches for 7,562 yards and 63 touchdowns over the course of 198 regular-season games as a pro.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Contemplating retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) hasn't made a decision on retirement, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Davis will turn 36 on Jan. 31, after missing the final 12 games of the 2019 campaign due to concussion symptoms. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, with the potential to earn a backup role if he decides to continue his football career. Davis has caught 583 passes for 7,562 yards and 63 touchdowns in 14 NFL seasons, and his showing at the 2006 combine remains one of the all-time-great workouts in league history.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins are placing Davis (concussion) on injured reserve, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The 35-year-old hasn't been able to play since he suffered a concussion Week 4, leaving Jeremy Sprinkle as Washington's top choice at tight end. Given his age as well as the serious nature of his injury, it won't come as any surprise if Davis decides to retire. His contract expires at the end of the season.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Still limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Davis has been limited during practices for seven weeks now, with Washington offering little indication of when he might be ready to resume taking contact. Barring a change in the status quo, Davis will presumably be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions shortly after Friday's practice concludes.

November 21, 2019 01:40 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Davis hasn't advanced beyond limited participation in practice since sustaining the concussion in Week 4, so his activity Wednesday represents no change in his status. The tight end will need to upgrade to full participation by Friday to have a realistic shot at playing Sunday against the Lions.

November 15, 2019 03:40 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Missing sixth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Since entering the concussion protocol after the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, Davis has remained in a holding pattern in his recovery from the head injury, as he hasn't advanced beyond limited participation in practices. With Davis still having yet to receive clearance for contact, Jeremy Sprinkle will get another turn as the Redskins' starting tight end this weekend.

November 14, 2019 05:36 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Still in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim coach Bill Callahan said Wednesday that Davis remains in the concussion protocol, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

There doesn't seem to be an end on sight to Davis' absence, which reached five games before the Redskins' Week 10 bye. Prior to the team-wide respite, he was able practice in a limited capacity for the better part of a month, so he seems to have passed a few phases in the protocol. In the end, though, Davis is subject to an evaluation by an independent neurologist before he'll gain clearance to play again.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Out for another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Davis has been a limited practice participant for four weeks, unable to advance to full status. His continued absence leaves Jeremy Sprinkle as Washington's No. 1 option at tight end in Dwayne Haskins' first NFL start.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Gets in limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

The tight end has been limited in practices for four weeks now, so his activity Thursday can't be taken as a sign that he's on track to play Sunday in Buffalo. Davis would likely need to advance to full-contact work in Friday's practice and receive clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up Sunday. With that in mind, Jeremy Sprinkle seems likely to garner another start in place of Davis.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Remains limited this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Davis has maintained such activity for a fourth consecutive week, but until he can get in front of an independent neurologist, he'll remain with an indefinite return timetable. As long as he's sidelined, the Redskins will trot out Jeremy Sprinkle and Hale Hentges at tight end.

October 23, 2019 02:44 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest in Minnesota.

For the third straight week, Davis was listed as a limited participant on every Redskins injury report. And for the fourth consecutive game, he won't be available to the offense. In Davis' stead, Jeremy Sprinkle will continue to start at tight end, with Hale Hentges playing a complementary role.

October 22, 2019 09:28 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Logs limited participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

The tight end hasn't progressed beyond limited activity in practices since he was diagnosed with a concussion coming out of the Week 4 loss to the Giants. Per Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington, Davis' inability to log full participation Tuesday likely renders him ineligible to play in the Redskins' Thursday night game in Minnesota this week, though he may not be officially ruled out until a day before the contest. In any case, Jeremy Sprinkle is on track for another start at tight end in Davis' stead.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Limited on practice estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Davis was a limited participant in every practice for the last two weeks, and he'll remain in this stage of the concussion protocol for now. It'll be a battle for him to get back to full health by Thursday's game against the Vikings. Jeremy Sprinkle stands to be the main beneficiary of a continued absence by Davis.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Ruled out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Davis has been a limited participant at every practice the past two weeks, unable to pass through the final stages of the concussion protocol. Jeremy Sprinkle will get at least one more start at tight end, following a 2-24-0 receiving line on three targets across 54 snaps last weekend in Miami.

October 17, 2019 04:44 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Davis has been limited in each of Washington's last five official practices, suggesting he hasn't made much meaningful progress in his recovery from the concussion over the past two weeks. Even if he advances to full participation Friday, Davis would still need clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up Sunday against the 49ers. Jeremy Sprinkle will start and see the bulk of the snaps at tight end if Davis can't go.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Davis logged a trio of limited practices last week. The veteran continues to progress through the league's concussion protocol, the final step of which will be to receive clearance from an independent neurologist. If Davis is able to get healthy and suit up Sunday against the 49ers, he'll serve as Washington's top option at tight end.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Miami.

As expected, Davis will miss a second straight game, leaving Jeremy Sprinkle and Jerome Cunningham as Washington's top options at tight end. Davis was listed as a limited practice participant throughout the week, but he hasn't been cleared from the concussion protocol.

October 11, 2019 01:40 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) isn't likely to play in Sunday's game at Miami, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

A limited practice participant the previous two days, Davis is being held out from Friday's session, hinting at a game absence for a second straight week. With Jordan Reed (concussion) out indefinitely, Jeremy Sprinkle is left as Washington's top tight end.

October 10, 2019 03:44 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

While Washington is likely encouraged by Davis logging some practice activity for the second straight day, he'll need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before he's ultimately removed from the NFL's concussion protocol. If that doesn't happen in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a combination of Jeremy Sprinkle, Jerome Cunningham and Hale Hentges would be in line to fill the available snaps at tight end.

October 9, 2019 05:24 PM
Redskins' Vernon Davis: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Davis is making his way through the concussion protocol for a second straight week. While he's getting some on-field reps in the first Week 6 session, he'll have to clear a number of hurdles to be cleared for game action, the final of which includes an appointment with an independent neurologist. If Davis joins Jordan Reed (concussion) on the inactive list this Sunday at Miami, the Redskins will turn to Jeremy Sprinkle (47 percent of the offensive snaps Week 5), Jerome Cunningham (22 percent) and perhaps newcomer Hale Hentges, who was claimed off waivers from the Colts on Monday.
