Davis is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons due to an ankle injury, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Davis was initially listed as questionable to return to Sunday's season finale but will ultimately remain sidelined. With the rookie second-round pick sidelined, Javien Elliott could benefit from a small uptick in snaps.
Davis (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Ravens, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. The rookie's return to action is a welcome sight for a Bucs secondary that has been particularly thin in recent weeks. Davis last suited up in Week 12 against the 49ers and will presumably slide back into his right cornerback spot opposite Brent Grimes on Sunday.
Davis (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Davis was able to progress to a full practice participant Friday but couldn't shed the questionable tag. The 21-year-old has missed the last two games but appears on track for a return at Baltimore this week.
Davis (knee) will not play Sunday against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Davis sustained the injury Sunday against the 49ers. The Buccaneers could be thin in their secondary with fellow rookie M.J. Stewart (foot) also ruled out and Brent Grimes (knee) listed as questionable. Ryan Smith and Javien Elliott project to each see an increase in snaps against the Panthers as a result of the multiple confirmed absences, and even more so if Grimes also fails to suit up.
Davis posted five tackles (three solo), including 1.5 for loss, in the Buccaneers' 16-3 loss to the Redskins on Sunday. The rookie had another busy afternoon in both run support and as a pass defender, posting his second straight five-tackle effort in the process. Davis' 1.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage marked the first time he checked off that box in his short career. With a seemingly secure starting cornerback job, the 21-year-old should continue generating serviceable tackle numbers, while his aggressive style should eventually lead to an increase in the three defensed passes he's been credited with thus far, as well as some interceptions.
