49ers downgrade DT Kalia Davis (ankle) to out for Super Bowl

The San Francisco 49ers announced Saturday that defensive tackle Kalia Davis has been ruled out of the Super Bowl XVIII matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Davis has an ankle injury and was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. He was a full practice participant during the week.

Davis, 25, played in three regular-season games for San Francisco this season. He sustained the ankle injury against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 17 and has since been sidelined.

The 49ers also elevated defensive linemen Alex Barrett and T.Y. McGill from the practice squad on Saturday.

Barrett, 29, last played in an NFL game during the 2020 season for the 49ers. McGill, 31, played in two games for San Francisco this season.
