Few tight ends in the entire NFL can break open a game with wide receiver-like athleticism and soft hands like Vernon Davis , but the San Francisco 49ers offense has to operate without him for the time being. Davis, 30, suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, per the team's official Twitter account: Davis' injury is particularly worrisome for San Francisco because he has been so productive throughout his career.

Week two is upon us, which means that the San Francisco 49ers will play host to the Chicago Bears in brand-new Levi's Stadium.
