SAINT LOUIS (CBS SF) – Injured 49er lineman Anthony Davis may have found a second career as a journalist while sitting out Monday night’s game against the St. Louis Rams.

Here’s a different angle on the incident sent to Deadspin.
It’s not clear which security agency is involved in the incident, but law enforcement in general has been under the microscope in the St. Louis area following the shooting of Michael Brown in August. Just days before the game, an 18-year-old was shot by a St. Louis Police officer, setting of a new round of anti-police protests. Both of the men killed in those incidents were black.
During the game Monday, protesters briefly hung a banner reading, “Rams fans know on and off the field black lives matter,” over of the top of a jumbo video board in the north end zone during the 49ers’ go-ahead drive in the third quarter. Minutes later, a few dozen protesters marched through the stands with their hands raised.MORE NEWS: CA Drought: New Marin Water Restrictions Catch Some Residents Off Guard
