49ers Vs. Lions Postgame Injury Report: TE Davis Poked In Eye, But OK

At one point in the first half, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was poked in the eye and had to leave the game for a few plays.

Davis had already caught his first touchdown pass of the game, and apparently the eye didn't bother him later, as Davis caught a second TD pass late in the fourth.

Also for San Francisco, punter Andy Lee made due despite a right hand injury. But the 49ers did activate third quarterback Scott Tolzien to hold in case Lee was unable to do so.

The 49ers also were without return man Ted Ginn and running back Brandon Jacobs, neither of whom were missed much. Jacobs, according to the Bee, warmed up wearing a metal brace on his left knee.

Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson shrugged off a missed practice on Wednesday of game week and caught eight passes for 94 yards.
