Vernon Davis wants to join his 49ers teammates in Sunday's regular-season finale against Arizona. In a late-Friday article entitled “Vernon Davis likely won’t play Sunday,” Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Davis “sounded not at all like a player expecting to return to action” during Friday interviews with reporters, and “he’s not optimistic about playing” against Arizona. “I’ve just got to get a little more comfortable,” said Davis, who suffered the concussion in last Sunday night’s loss to Seattle. Michael Crabtree is the only available receiver with more than Davis' 40 catches this season. Coach Jim Harbaugh described Davis as "on course" to play, but Harbaugh routinely overstates an injured player's chances of coming back.
