Davis (quadriceps) was inactive for Pittsburgh's 16-13 win over Cincinnati in Week 17.
Despite missing the season finale, Davis led the Steelers with 80 tackles in 2018. He also had an interception in 15 games played. Although his season total dropped from the 92 tackles he amassed in 2017, he led the team for a second straight year. Davis has one year remaining on his current contract and should return as the starting free safety for the 2019 season.
Davis missed two days of practice due to a quadriceps injury, and will sit out versus the Bengals despite returning to practice Friday. Jordan Dangerfield will slot into Pittsburgh's starting lineup for Sunday's must-win contest.
Davis was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday, but ended the week with a full practice Friday. The Maryland product leads the team in tackles (79) and will be a game-time decision. If Davis doesn't play, Marcus Allen would be next in line for work at the free safety position.
Davis (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Per the report, Davis' availability for Sunday's game is up in the air at this point. Davis, the team's leading tackler (79 tackles), will likely come down to a game-time decision. His practice participation for the next few days should give an indication of whether he plays.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Davis is dealing with a quadriceps injury and is uncertain to play Week 17 against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Like Davis, Tomlin described linebacker Vince Williams (toe) and running back James Conner (ankle) as questionable for the regular-season finale, with the activity level of all three players during practices Wednesday through Friday likely to be the determining factor in their gameday availability. Davis, Pittsburgh's starting free safety, has appeared in all 15 games to date, racking up 80 tackles (59 solo), seven pass breakups and an interception.
