Justin Davis: Cut from practice squad
The Cardinals cut Davis from the practice squad Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Davis spent a month on Arizona's practice squad, but he's now been cut to make room for Miles Brown on the unit. The 23-year-old running back will look to catch on in a depth capacity elsewhere in the league.... See More ... See Less
Justin Davis: Signs with Cards' practice squad
Davis signed with Arizona's practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Davis had a solid performance in the Rams' preseason finale Thursday, rushing 16 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in addition to a 14-yard reception. The 23-year-old had a very slim chance at making Los Angeles' roster -- what with their multitude of options in the backfield -- but now he can focus on developing with Arizona's practice squad....

Rams' Justin Davis: Produces 92 scrimmage yards
Davis carried 16 times for 78 yards and a touchdown while adding a 14-yard reception during Thursday's preseason win over the Texans.
Davis averaged a respectable 4.9 yards per carry as he easily led the team in rushing yardage. After coming into the game on the team's third possession, he scored on a two-yard touchdown burst in the third quarter before punching in the extra point attempt. While Davis' effort surely caught the eye of the coaching staff, the team already has a multitude of backfield options and could still part ways with him when roster cuts are announced....

Rams' Justin Davis: Returns from concussion
Davis (concussion) carried five times for 22 yards and caught both his targets for an additional six yards during Saturday's 14-10 win over the Rams.
Davis missed last week's game after suffering a head injury, but he returned after healing up and led the team in rushing yards while averaging 4.4 yards per carry. He appears to be fully healthy moving forward and will now look to lock up a roster spot at the bottom of a crowded backfield. Davis' next opportunity to stake his claim will come Saturday against the Broncos.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Suffers concussion
Davis did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders due to a concussion, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Davis suffered the concussion during practice earlier this week and has likely been going through the league's concussion protocol since. He should be considered day-to-day until he is clear of any concussion-like symptoms.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Fighting for roster spot
Davis seemingly finds himself in a competition with John Kelly for the final roster spot in Los Angeles' backfield, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.
Even with Todd Gurley fighting through knee issues, it seems the Rams' backfield has become fairly crowded. Malcolm Brown signed a two-year contract March 22 and the Rams selected Darrell Henderson in the third round of the 2019 Draft, and both seem like the clear choices for any reps not given to Gurley this season. That leaves Davis to compete directly with John Kelly for the final spot in the backfield. Kelly appeared in four games last season, recording 29 touches for 101 total yards, while Davis saw action in 11 games and logged two carries for 19 yards.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Sitting divisional round
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's playoff game against the Cowboys, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Davis was previously dealing with a shoulder issue but he had no limitations at practice this week. Todd Gurley (knee) is set to retake his starting role with C.J. Anderson serving as the No. 2 running back, sending Davis back to the inactive list.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Ready to go for Week 17
Davis (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
While nursing the shoulder injury ahead of last week's win over the Cardinals, Davis was ultimately active for the game but didn't log any snaps on offense or special teams. After taking part in every practice in Week 17 -- including a full showing Friday -- Davis looks to be in a better place on the health front entering the season finale. That could enable Davis to have a role in the game plan this time around with Todd Gurley (knee) still sidelined, though it's likely that C.J. Anderson will rank as the top option out of the backfield after turning in a credible performance last week in his team debut (20 carries for 167 yards and a touchdown).... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Listed as questionable again
Davis (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official website reports.
Davis was active last week while dealing with the same shoulder injury, but he didn't play any snaps in a 31-9 win over the Cardinals. He may be headed for another week as nothing more than an emergency option, with C.J. Anderson and John Kelly both better bets to handle the snaps vacated by Todd Gurley (knee).... See More ...

Rams' Justin Davis: Maintains limited participation
Davis (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
In a Week 16 win at Arizona, Davis missed out on a chance to fill in for Todd Gurley (knee) due to a shoulder injury of his own. With more reps under his belt than Gurley this week, Davis could get in the act behind C.J. Anderson and John Kelly in a backfield sans the Rams' top runner. Coach Sean McVay has said Gurley doesn't need to practice in order to play, so Davis could be relegated to special-teams duty or even inactive status in that reality, with Anderson and Kelly better options to spell Gurley....

Rams' Justin Davis: Limited by shoulder
Davis (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through session, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
Davis' listing is merely an estimation, but the Rams still have two practices in which he can put in some on-field reps this week. While he was active for Sunday's win over the Cardinals, Davis didn't take the field. Instead, C.J. Anderson (20 carries) and John Kelly (10) benefited in the absence of top back Todd Gurley (knee). A similar breakdown may happen in the regular-season finale if the Rams opt to get Gurley and Davis healthy for the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Available in absence of Gurley
Davis (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday in Arizona, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Despite missing practice all week due to a shoulder injury, Davis will be available to a backfield without the services of Todd Gurley (knee). The breakdown of potential touches between Davis, John Kelly and C.J. Anderson is unclear, but coach Sean McVay hinted Anderson would get the start if this was the reality. Perhaps Davis' availability will change that, especially since the second-year back has turned three career carries into 20 yards.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Status uncertain Sunday
Davis (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Davis and fellow running back Todd Gurley (knee) are the only players that will carry designations into the weekend after neither player practiced in any fashion Wednesday through Friday. Coach Sean McVay noted that Gurley's status would be decided after a pregame workout, but it's not known if the same opportunity will be extended to Davis. Even if Gurley sits out and Davis plays, the Rams would likely take a committee approach to the backfield that would likely keep the newly signed C.J. Anderson and rookie John Kelly involved....

Rams' Justin Davis: No go Thursday
Davis (shoulder) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
If healthy, Davis would stand to benefit in the event Todd Gurley (knee) is limited or sidelined Sunday in Arizona. Unfortunately, Davis has joined Gurley in the trainer's room all week due to a shoulder injury. There's an expectation within the organization that Gurley will give it a go this weekend, but no such sentiment has been expressed about Davis. The remaining backfield options in LA are John Kelly and recent addition C.J. Anderson.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Misses walk-through
Davis (shoulder) didn't take part in Wednesday's walk-through practice, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
If he was healthy, Davis likely would be the primary running back to target in a backfield that may be without Todd Gurley (knee) down the stretch. Though coach Sean McVay expects Gurley to suit up Sunday in Arizona, the stud back could be shut down early if the Rams get out to a big lead. Before that scenario can be pondered, though, Gurley and Davis will have to both prove their health this week. With the duo sitting out Wednesday, John Kelly and veteran C.J. Anderson took on all the backfield reps.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Justin Davis: Candidate for increased reps
Davis (shoulder) could see additional snaps Sunday if Todd Gurley (knee) is unable to play, though Davis' status will be monitored throughout the week as well, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Davis exited Sunday's contest against the Eagles with a shoulder injury, which could put a possible role expansion in Week 16 on hold. Given how heavily the Rams utilize Gurley, it isn't surprising that Davis saw just four offensive snaps versus the Eagles on Sunday and has taken just five overall this season. Davis would likely slot in behind John Kelly in the pecking order for carries against the Cardinals if Gurley sits, but Davis' status is something to watch as well.... See More ... See Less
