Default What's the deal with Davis?

Is there and injury I should be worried about here? I went away on vacation and come back hearing some weird things.

I think he is just has some swelling in his knee. Said he is going to rush for 2000 yards and cant even get through training camp...

I too am becoming increasingly nervous about Davis. He hasn't practiced much, been in the scrimmage, and he didn't play in the game against the Cowboys.

IIf he is going to be our featured back shoulnd't he make it at least a week in training camp?

I hope I'm wrong here because he's one heck of a player.

Well it is good to know that his absence from practice or games has been a coach's decision to be cautious about the injuries. The one thing to remember is that last year Davis had an injury prior to camp as a rookie and still had a very good season. I agree I am a little nervous about the injuries but I am not ready to hit the panic button.

A lot of running backs don't see much action in training camp. You don't want to use up many of the limited number of carries a running back has during training camp when he really doesn't have a lot to prove.

I'm not too nervous about Davis being injured because of Hollings showing what he can do. The fumbles are a problem, but those will be fixed. I'm not saying Hollings is better than Davis, but I'm just saying that until Davis is 100% healthy...it's not a big problem because we have a guy that can fill in and do a decent, solid job. Hopefully Davis will be back soon and we can see whether or not Hollings will make a push for the starting job.

It's a long season and we already know what he can do. I really don't want to see him in too many preseason games because of the injury risk. Most backs have a hard time making it through the grueling 16 week schedule anyway so why push it now especially since he has a little history. I think I'm more concerned about Hollings' hands than I am DD's legs.
