UPDATE: NBC Sports has provided quotes from Vernon Davis on the incident.

"I’m still thinking about it. I can feel it. 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."

Davis later tweeted (and eventually deleted):

"It should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis. #NFL the most painful thing ever! #NFL"

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis fell to the ground in pain after St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald tackled him in the groin. Ouch.
