Davis rushed four times for 10 yards and caught both targets for 22 yards in Saturday's wild-card loss to the Cowboys.
Davis was held under 45 rushing yards for the eighth straight game, and he averaged less than five carries per contest in that span. He finished the regular season with 514 yards and four touchdowns on 112 carries, and his campaign was highlighted by a Week 4 performance versus the Cardinals when he compiled 124 scrimmage yards and two scores. His featured role was as a pass catcher this season, as he ranked third on the team and first among running backs with 34 receptions, which he parlayed into 214 yards. His contract with Seattle will expire in March, and Davis may explore his options since Chris Carson broke out this year and rookie Rashaad Penny -- the Seahawks' first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft -- looks poised to take over as the No. 2 back.
Davis (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The Seahawks haven't completed their final practice of the week, but there's apparently no concern about Davis' status for the weekend after the foot issue limited his participation in Wednesday's session. He'll fill his familiar duties as the Seahawks' top pass-catching option out of the backfield Saturday, a role that netted him 34 receptions for 214 yards and a score during the regular season.
After being tagged with a DNP on Tuesday's initial report, Davis took part in some individual drills Wednesday, putting himself on a path to active status Saturday in Dallas. He was a close second behind starter Chris Carson in terms of offensive snaps Week 17 against the Cardinals -- 25 versus 32 -- but his nine touches paled in comparison to Carson's 20. Expect the status quo to reign between the two if Davis is active this weekend, as expected.
Davis apparently suffered the foot injury at some point during Sunday's win over the Cardinals, but he never exited with a designation. The Seahawks have shown to be generally willing to rest players early in the week and given the short week of preparation for Saturday's wild-card game, that could be the case for Davis. Regardless, the 26-year-old's practice participation Wednesday and Thursday should provide a better idea of whether his status is in doubt.
Davis rushed seven times for 44 yards and a touchdown while hauling in two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
Although Chris Carson continues to command Seattle's backfield, Davis was a serviceable change of pace, scoring for the first time since Week 10 with a 17-yard touchdown late in the third quarter to extend the Seahawks' lead. Davis also outplayed rookie Rashaad Penny, who accrued just six yards on four carries. Going into the first round of playoffs against the Cowboys, coach Pete Carroll will likely award either Davis or Penny with the top backup to Carson based on a hot-hand approach.
