Davis was limited to 25 yards on 15 carries and caught four of five targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 21-12 victory over the Cowboys. The Dallas defense limited Seattle to just 136 total yards on the day, but untimely turnovers from the opposition helped key the Seahawks' road victory. Though Davis struggled to find much running room Sunday, it was at least encouraging to see him dominate the backfield work, as Thomas Rawls (five touches) and J.D. McKissic (none) were mostly non-factors. The Seahawks' much-maligned offensive line may continue to inhibit Davis' efficiency in the regular-season finale against an Arizona defense that has yielded just 3.5 yards per carry for the season, a mark that ranks third in the NFL.
Davis rushed six times for 19 yards and reeled in both pass attempts directed his way for 20 additional yards in Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Rams. All of Davis' touches came in the first two quarters, but the Seahawks turned to J.D. McKissic once the second half started and they were down 34-0. After successive weeks of at least 15 rushes and 64 rushing yards, it was certainly a disappointing result for anyone counting on the 25-year-old in the fantasy playoffs. He ought to rebound during Week 16 at Dallas.
Davis (ribs) isn't on the Seahawks' final injury report for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Davis injured his ribs in the fourth quarter of last week's 30-24 loss to Jacksonville, finishing with 15 carries for 66 yards. He returned to full practice participation Thursday and is locked in as the lead rusher for Sunday's matchup with a Rams defense that has giving up 4.7 yards per carry and 124.1 rushing yards per game this season.
Davis (ribs) was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports. Davis came out of Sunday's hard-hitting contest at Jacksonville with a rib injury, but not before cranking out 15 carries for 66 yards. As of Wednesday, Davis seemed confident he'll be ready for a Week 15 matchup against the Rams, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. With one practice -- albeit a walk-through -- under his belt, Davis is setting himself up to add to his workload as the week continues. Ultimately, his listing on Friday's injury report will forecast whether an appearance is likely this weekend.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Davis (ribs) will practice Wednesday, Tony Drovetto of the Seahawks' official site reports. Davis didn't earn a touch after injuring his ribs with five minutes remaining in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville. Carroll told Brady Henderson of ESPN.com that Davis was "moving around pretty good" Monday, and the running back himself relayed an expectation that he'll play Sunday against the Rams. Davis' activity level Wednesday will set the tone for his Week 15 preparations.
