Davis (concussion) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Davis will close out his 13th season with back-to-back absences due to a concussion. In 14 prior appearances, he mustered a 25-367-2 line on 36 targets working behind Jordan Reed (foot/ankle) for most of the campaign. With both tight ends sidelined, the Redskins will turn to Jeremy Sprinkle as the primary receiving TE, though Matt Flanagan will earn some snaps as well.
Davis (concussion) is listed as doubtful to play Sunday against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. A little birdie told JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington that Davis wouldn't suit up this weekend, and while that may come to pass, the Redskins have yet to rule out the veteran tight end. On the other hand, Davis' listing isn't exactly encouraging. With a concussion still in tow, he likely is facing an evaluation from an independent neurologist Saturday, at which point his availability for Week 17 could be confirmed. With Jordan Reed (foot/ankle) on IR, Jeremy Sprinkle is the next man up at tight end in Washington.
Davis (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Eagles, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. With fellow tight end Jordan Reed (foot) already on injured reserve, Jeremy Sprinkle could be looking at an every-down role Week 17. Davis will turn 35 in January and has one season remaining on a three-year, $15 million contract, with Washington able to save $5 million by releasing him during the offseason, per overthecap.com.
Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports. A late addition to the injury report last week with a concussion, Davis ultimately didn't suit up for a Week 16 loss at Tennessee. In the Redskins' first session since that contest, he's progressed enough to handle some on-field reps, but an independent neurologist still must clear him for game action. If he's able to return Sunday versus the Eagles, Davis could be Josh Johnson's primary tight-end option with Jordan Reed still tending to foot and ankle injuries.
The Redskins downgraded Davis (concussion) from questionable to out for Saturday's game against the Titans. Washington ruled No. 1 tight end Jordan Reed (foot/ankle) out for the game a day earlier, so Davis' absence now leaves Jeremy Sprinkle as the next man up at the position. Reed's injury appears significant enough to sideline him for the season finale Dec. 30 against the Eagles, so Davis could reclaim a starting role in Week 17 if he's able to clear the five-step concussion protocol beforehand.
