Running back coach Eric Bieniemy likes what he sees so far from Jamaal Charles' backup.
"First and foremost, Knile has taken a tremendous jump mentally," Bieniemy said. "The beauty of it is last year was his first time going through it. Now he's been through it. Now we're just rehearsing everything, and we're going over the things we made mistakes on. He has a better awareness of what's going on with the game. Obviously he comes out here every day and he works his tail off. The beauty of it is he's learning how to become a professional. He's gaining a better understanding of awareness, of what it takes to be a professional, what it takes to see a blitz coming, how to apply the proper technique when pressure is coming. So he's doing a great job so far."
Reid said Davis is "healed" and "doing everything" at offseason workouts. Davis had 70 carries for 242 yards and four touchdowns and 11 catches for 75 yards as the primary backup to Jamaal Charles last year.
The report says if Davis can't participate in any of the offseason work, that will set him back greatly because his is a game that needs development in many areas.
Filling in for Jamaal Charles, who suffered a concussion on the first drive of the game, Davis led the team in rushing yards before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. He was unable to return.
Davis had 18 carries for 67 yards in the game, scoring on a 4-yard run just before haltime. He added a second score minutes after halftime on a 10-yard reception, while finishing the game with seven receptions for 33 yards.
The extent of the injury is not yet known, but Davis' season ended with the 45-44 loss to the Colts.
