The 49ers top two tight ends are getting better by the day -- but in very different ways.
Davis' backup, rookie
"I'm certainly ready and willing to step up and do it," McDonald said after Tuesday's practice. "Just like I have the last two weeks: prepare, get the game plan down, know my assignments and go from there."
As for his knocking over Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman at the end of his 19-yard catch and run, McDonald was pleased with his Week 2 highlight.
"That's always my first mentality, to run over anyone who gets in the way," he said. "I'm glad it worked out for me."
