Carrier will step in for Celek, and gives the 49ers another tight end option given that Davis has also been hobbled. Carrier, a former receiver should have the hands to make a few plays but the real question will be his ability in the blocing game. He may not see much play time though if McDonald and Davis can stay active and healthy.
