Vernon Davis begged Rams defender to let go of his groin

Vernon Davis, in between a day of leaping over defenders at will, suffered what may have been one of the season's most painful tackles on Sunday, getting dragged to the ground by his penis.

Davis laid on the ground for a while, understandably. Afterward, he related his first person account of the incident, in which he begged his tackle to please, for the love of god, let go.

"I'm still thinking about it. I can feel it," said Davis, who was in good spirits. "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."
