The Sports Xchange

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis denied a published report that he and left tackle Joe Staley had a verbal altercation after he reportedly called out quarterback Colin Kaepernick in a players-only meeting earlier this month.

Published reports suggested the altercation escalated into a physical confrontation. Davis shot down both reports – claiming he didn’t criticize Kaepernick and he didn’t get into a dispute with Staley.

“No, I didn’t call Kap out,” Davis told reporters on Thursday. “I don’t know where you got that from. I didn’t call Kap out at all.

“It’s not my job or my role to call Kap out. I let coaches do that. We’re all together. There’s nothing that can separate any of us. We’re inseparable, I would think.

“Me, Kap, Joe are all on the same page. We’re captains, we’re leaders so we have to stay together in order for things to happen.”

Kaepernick said Wednesday that he has no issues with any of his teammates. Staley was unavailable to comment during the team’s open locker room period on Thursday.
