- Arkansas RB Davis out to prove health, talent...Perhaps more than any of the workout participants, Davis is a wild card entering Friday's on-campus pro day and next month's NFL draft. The problem for the Texas native, though, is there's no way he can answer the one question everyone has. Can he stay healthy? "You can't prove that you're not going to get hurt," Davis said. "That's why I don't understand the injury-prone tag. You can't say someone's injury prone, because anyone on the field can get hurt. You can have a hot No. 1 pick, and he can get hurt, too. And then someone who's been hurt can never get hurt again. There's no way to prove it."
There's no way to fully shake the label, as the former first-team All-Southeastern Conference running back knows all too well - given an injury history that dates to high school. All Davis can do is prepare for auditions such as Friday, when he's expected to run routes and catch passes from Wilson, and hope for a chance. "I'm a realist; people have short memories," Davis said. "The media, coaches, it's `What have you done for me lately?' So, yeah, I definitely have something to prove. I have something to prove to myself that I can play at the next level." - AP Sports
