Davis signed with the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday.
Davis was waived by the Chargers prior to Week 2 when the team needed to sign cornerback Michael Davis to account for injuries in the secondary. Los Angeles has now elected to keep the wideout within the organization after he cleared waivers this weekend.
Davis was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.
Davis played six offensive snaps but did not receive a target in Monday's game against the Broncos. The Chargers opted to sign cornerback Michael Davis with Jason Verrett (knee) ruled out for Week 2, but the third-year wide receiver could easily find himself back with Los Angeles if Verrett returns and the team's injury issues at wide receiver persist.
Davis was productive over the last three preseason games, catching nine passes for 68 yards, and he signed onto the team's practice squad after being waived. Davis was likely called up for depth purposes with Mike Williams (back) ruled out and Dontrelle Inman (groin) a game-time decision. Davis would figure to be used in a limited capacity if Inman was ruled out.
Davis signed with the Chargers' practice squad Monday, Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times reports.
Davis was a hot target in the final three preseason games, catching nine passes for 68 yards, but no touchdowns. He suited up in three games last season, but mainly because the Chargers were getting skimp due to injuries. If the same thing happens this season, Davis will be a top candidate to be activated.
Davis (hamstring) made an impressive one-handed catch during Wednesday's practice, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.
Davis missed a valuable showcase opportunity last Saturday due to a hamstring injury, but his presence at practice Wednesday suggests he could be in line to play in the Chargers' second preseason tilt. He'll attempt to once again crack the 53-man roster as a specialist for the club.
