Davis is making his case for a role on offense, Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com reports.
A 2016 fifth-round pick, Davis enters the final year of his rookie contract with eight receptions in 29 career games, though he did see regular work as a return specialist his first two seasons. He then missed most of 2018 with hamstring injuries, returning healthy this spring for the offseason program. While still a long shot to earn a key role on offense, Davis at least has some time to make his case.
Davis (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Davis will end the year where he left off, as the third-year receiver played in two games before aggravating a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the first nine games of the regular season. Jake Kumerow (shoulder) will take his spot on the roster and is expected to see some opportunities at kick returner.
Davis (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's contest against the Cardinals.
This statement comes straight from coach Mike McCarthy. Davis was forced out of Sunday's game with this hamstring injury, and it is seemingly serious enough to again keep him off the field. Tramon Williams or Marquez Valdez-Scantling could take over special teams duties, particularly on kick and punt returns. Davis' injury may also leave room for fellow wide receiver Jake Kumerow (shoulder) to return to the team after standing out -- and getting injured -- in preseason.
Davis (hamstring) was unable to return to Sunday's loss to the Vikings after his injury, Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Davis spent the first half of the season on IR due to a hamstring injury and this most recent setback came in just his second game since returning. He had been handling kick and punt returns and operating as a gunner on punts as well. The severity of his injury is unknown, and he should be considered questionable for next week's game against the Cardinals for the time being. Look for Tramon Williams or Marquez Valdes-Scantling to handle the return duties if Davis is held out.
Davis injured his hamstring and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
This isn't good news for Davis, who spent the first nine games of the season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. In his absence, the Packers will likely use Tramon Williams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to handle return responsibilities.
The Packers activated Davis (hamstring) from injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game against the Seahawks.
Davis will offer the Packers an extra body at receiver with Randall Cobb (hamstring) sidelined for his fifth game of the season, but it's special teams where the 25-year-old is expected to make his biggest impact. The 2016 fifth-round pick was among the NFL's most productive punt returners last season, ranking third among all qualifiers with 12.0 yards per runback. Davis' return to the roster will result in Tramon Williams shedding his special-teams responsibilities and focusing solely on his duties as one of the Packers' starting safeties.
Davis (hamstring) is expected to return from injured reserve and suit up against the Seahawks on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Davis has already spent the mandatory eight weeks on injured reserve and appears fully healthy, so he'll be eligible to suit up against the Seahawks in Week 11. The third-year wideout will serve as Green Bay's primarty kick returner, but he's unlikely to see a significant role outside of special teams.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Davis (hamstring) will be one of the two players the team designates to return from injured reserve, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
That means Davis will return to practice this week, initiating a 21-day window with which the Packers can evaluate him for an addition to the 53-man roster. Though Davis' designation comes a day after the team placed fellow wideout Geronimo Allison (groin) on IR, it's unlikely that the third-year player would be counted on to pick up much of the slack on offense. Instead, Davis is expected to make his biggest impact on special teams, where he had served as a return specialist through his first two seasons in Green Bay. Since Davis has already spent the mandatory eight weeks on IR, he'll be eligible to play as soon as Week 11 in Seattle.
Head coach Mike McCarthy does not expect Davis (hamstring) to practice this week, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Davis, who's eligible to return to practice this week for the first time, is considered one of Green Bay's most likely candidates to be activated off IR this season. However, it doesn't seem as if the return specialist is particularly close to being ready for game action, which presumably keeps the door open for Ty Montgomery to continue handling kickoff returns while Tramon Williams takes care of punts.
Davis (hamstring) can practice for the first time next week, which would open a two-week window to activate him from injured reserve, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Davis was inactive Week 1 due to a hamstring injury that afflicted him at various points during the offseason program, training camp and the preseason slate. On Sept. 11, the Packers decided to place him on injured reserve, likely to allow Davis to focus solely on his health. Whenever he returns to practice, he'll have to prove his hamstring isn't an issue within a two-week span, or risk getting released. If he's activated to the 53-man roster, Davis likely would retake both return jobs, but a regular spot in the receiving corps may be difficult to procure with Geronimo Allison (hamstring), Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown filling in capably as secondary or tertiary options in the passing game.
The Packers placed Davis (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Davis first battled the hamstring issue early in the preseason but was able to prove his health before the end of the exhibition slate and earn a spot on the team's final roster. However, it appears he aggravated the injury at some point prior to the Week 1 game against the Bears, resulting in him being one of the team's inactive players for that contest. The Packers either didn't feel Davis was close to making a full recovery from the injury or were satisfied with the existing options at receiving and the return game, prompting the decision to shift him to IR. The third-year player would likely make his greatest impact on special teams if the Packers designate him as one of their two players eligible to return from IR this season.
Davis is inactive for Sunday's season opener against the Bears due to a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
It's unclear whether Davis' current injury is related to the hamstring issue, which derailed him for months during the offseason. Expected to have served as Green Bay's top kick returner, Davis will need to return to health soon to hold on to his spot on the 53-man roster.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's season-opening game against the Bears, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Davis managed to earn a spot on Green Bay's 53-man roster, but will not suit up for Week 1. In Davis' place, Ty Montgomery and Jaire Alexander stand to share kick return duties.
Davis totaled 160 yards on seven kick returns and minus-four yards on his only punt return during Thursday's preseason finale against the Chiefs.
The Packers clearly gave Davis plenty of opportunities to prove himself as a special-teams asset -- which is Davis' only ticket to a spot on the 53-man roster ahead of Saturday's cutdowns. While Davis came close to breaking one loose on a kick return, he also fumbled on a different attempt and had a so-so night overall. It will be interesting to see if Green Bay opts to keep him in favor of one of their three draft picks at receiver.
Davis returned to practice Monday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Davis immediately began working as a kick returner, with no Packers player emerging in the return game in the 2016 fifth-rounder's absence. Though Davis is not a lock to make the 53-man roster, his success as a return man last season (12.0 yards per punt return) could help the 25-year-old's case. Davis has not yet seen any preseason action, and his last chance to suit up before Week 1 will be this Thursday against Kansas City.
Davis (hamstring) did not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.
Davis has not played in either of the Packers' exhibition games thus far, and he is not a sure bet to make the cut. The best thing going for him is no one has emerged in the return game in his absence, and he has a track record of success there after averaging 12.0 yards per punt return a year ago.
Davis (hamstring) did not play in Thursday's preseason opener.
Davis has dealt with a hamstring injury for a few months now, and the setback is preventing him from taking part in game action. That's an unfortunate development for Davis, who is facing strong competition for his roster spot from several young receivers.
Davis (hamstring) did not participate in Saturday's practice, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Davis returned to training camp Thursday after dealing with a hamstring injury in May and June, so Saturday's absence may have simply been a scheduled day of rest as the Packers ease their return man back into action. Davis will have a chance to climb the depth chart at wide receiver following the departure of Jordy Nelson, while Geronimo Allison and J'Mon Moore present competition behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
Davis (hamstring) was practicing at Packers' training camp Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Davis was sidelined by the hamstring issue in May and June, but he appears no worse for wear as Packers training camp kicks into gear. Davante Adams and Randall Cobb are locked in as Green Bay's top two wide receivers, but a strong camp could could help Davis earn a larger role than previous seasons following the departure of Jordy Nelson.
Davis did not participate in minicamp Tuesday due to a hamstring injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Davis was sidelined for the start of OTAs a few weeks back after suffering a hamstring injury, but he was ultimately able to return to the field last week. Whether this is an aggravation is yet to be determined, but either way, it's likely the Packers are proceeding with caution, as the injury never was considered serious from the start.
