Davis has played in five games with the Chargers over the last two seasons, mainly as a special teams player. He'll act as a depth option at wide receiver, but his contract extension does not guarantee he'll make the final 53-man roster come the fall.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Since being promoted back to the Chargers' 53-man roster, Davis has made just one appearance for the team, logging six offensive snaps in the Week 13 win over the Browns. With fellow wideout Mike Williams (knee) back in the fold Sunday, however, Davis will don street clothes as usual.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that Davis would be signed off the practice squad and onto the 53-man roster prior to Sunday's game against the Patriots, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. "Geremy Davis is the guy who's next in line [to replace Dontrelle Inman], absolutely," Lynn said. "He's done a great job from Day 1. He was up for a little while, then we put him down. And he deserves to be back up. He can help us on special teams."
Davis was previously cut by the Chargers following their season-opening loss to the Broncos before signing on with the team's practice squad. He'll assume the roster spot for Inman, who the team traded to the Bears on Wednesday in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick. As Lynn noted, it's likely that Davis will make most of his impact on special teams rather than as a receiver, where he'll sit fifth on the depth chart behind Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Mike Williams.
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.
