San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis recently underwent surgery on his left shoulder, he revealed Thursday on social media.
Davis stated on Instagram that he injured his shoulder against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He posted a photo of himself with a sling on his left arm. He later corrected himself, writing on Twitter he sustained the injury in a Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Davis appeared on the 49ers' injury report the next five weeks after the Colts game and typically took part in only limited practices. After the bye week, Davis no longer appeared on the injury report. Davis has not missed a start in four NFL seasons with the 49ers.
“Never made excuses just got the job done,” Davis wrote. “This game has a way of seeing what you're really made of. One of the reasons I love it. Next season I get to use both arms.”
When asked if he sustained a torn labrum, Davis answered "labrum and bicep." There is no timetable for his return to football activities. The 49ers opened their offseason conditioning program on Monday.
