SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Right tackle Anthony Davis is set to start for the San Francisco 49ers against the Eagles, which would be his season debut after missing the first three games with a hamstring injury.

Tight end Vernon Davis also is active after missing part of two games with a left ankle injury, while backup tight end Vance McDonald was inactive for the second straight week after injuring a knee against the Bears on Sept. 14.

Left guard Matt Tobin and center David Molk are set to make their first career starts for the Eagles on a beat-up offensive line. Molk replaces Jason Kelce, who had sports hernia surgery this week. With All-Pro left guard Evan Mathis and backup right tackle Allen Barbre already hurt and starting right tackle Lane Johnson serving the final game of his four-game suspension, left tackle Jason Peters is the only player in his usual spot.
