49ers’ Vernon Davis Claims He Was Tackled By Groin

Vernon DavisSan Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis claims that St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald went below the belt to make a tackle Sunday and wouldn’t let go.

“I’m still thinking about it. I can feel it,” Davis said after the 49ers’ 23-13 victory, according to the team’s website. “It was a crossing route. I made the play, and as soon as I got my hands on the ball, [McDonald] was grabbing me right there in that space, that area, and I kept telling him, ‘Let go, get off me, get off me,’ and he wouldn’t let me go.”

Davis also tweeted about the third-quarter play Monday, saying “it should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis,” calling it “the most painful thing ever!”
