One aftereffect of Sunday's loss in Jacksonville was a rib injury for Davis, who left the game with five minutes left in the third quarter. After Wednesday's walk-through, he was deemed a limited participant, but his elevation to full Thursday paves the way for Davis to retain his role as the Seahawks' No. 1 running back. In three appearances with the team, he's churned out 215 yards from scrimmage but still awaits his first visit to the end zone.
Davis (ribs) was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.
Davis came out of Sunday's hard-hitting contest at Jacksonville with a rib injury, but not before cranking out 15 carries for 66 yards. As of Wednesday, Davis seemed confident he'll be ready for a Week 15 matchup against the Rams, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. With one practice -- albeit a walk-through -- under his belt, Davis is setting himself up to add to his workload as the week continues. Ultimately, his listing on Friday's injury report will forecast whether an appearance is likely this weekend.
Davis didn't earn a touch after injuring his ribs with five minutes remaining in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville. Carroll told Brady Henderson of ESPN.com that Davis was "moving around pretty good" Monday, and the running back himself relayed an expectation that he'll play Sunday against the Rams. Davis' activity level Wednesday will set the tone for his Week 15 preparations.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Davis (ribs) is "moving around pretty good today," but the running back's status is "uncertain," Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Davis has been a boon to the Seahawks' ground attack in his three appearances with the team, racking up 148 rushing yards, 77 receiving yards and one touchdown. He emerged from Sunday's 30-24 loss in Jacksonville with a rib issue, though, which has placed a cloud over his potential to play Week 15 against the Rams. His first chance to answer those questions arrives Wednesday upon the release of the first injury report of the week.
Davis hurt his ribs during Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Jaguars, Aron Yohanes of the Seahawks' official website reports. "[Davis] got hit in the ribs," Carroll said. "I thought he looked great. I thought he ran like crazy. This is the best rushing defense in the NFL and we had 100 yards at halftime. And Mike was ripping and he did a nice job against these guys. The guys up front did a nice job too -- Russell's yardage was helpful -- but I thought Mike looked really good."
Davis suffered the injury with about five minutes left in the third quarter and was deemed probable to return, but he didn't get another touch the rest of the way. His lack of contribution in the fourth quarter may have been a product of game context rather than a result of the injury, as the Seahawks were forced to abandon their rushing attack while playing from behind during an eventful second half. Davis finished with 15 carries for 66 yards and one catch for a loss of one yard, earning strong praise from head coach Pete Carroll after the game. Davis may have limitations at practice during the upcoming week, but early signs suggest the Seahawks expect him to continue in his role as the lead back for a Week 15 home game against the Rams.
