Davis, who recorded five tackles (three solo) Sunday during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, finished the regular season with 68 tackles (52 solo), four interceptions and 18 pass breakups across 14 games.
The third-year cornerback ranked third on the team in tackles in the Super Bowl, and he was part of a superb effort by the Buccaneers' secondary in limiting the damage caused by the Chiefs' elite air attack. Davis also enjoyed a career-best regular season, allowing a pedestrian 53.7 percent completion rate in primary coverage. The Auburn product is slated to play out the final year of his rookie contract in 2021, but it wouldn't be surprising in the least if Davis is offered an extension this offseason.
Davis was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Davis' groin injury looks to be trending in a positive direction as he was a full participant in Friday's practice. The cornerback is a solid tackler for the Bucs with 68 stops (52 solo) and will look to build on that number in Sunday evening's divisional-round matchup against the Saints.
Davis (groin) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
After injuring his groin during Week 15's game against Atlanta, Davis missed the last two regular-season games and has been inconsistent in practicing since. The 24-year-old was able to battle through his injury in last week's wild-card win, and can hopefully do the same for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Saints.
Davis (groin) supplied nine tackles (eight solo) and defensed two passes in the Buccaneers' 31-23 wild-card win over Washington on Saturday night.
The third-year cornerback was able to battle through his groin issue to co-lead the team in tackles for the night alongside linebacker Lavonte David. The 24-year-old struggled at times in coverage this past season, but he also once again proved to be a sure tackler with 68 stops (52 solo) over 14 games. That skill was evident again Saturday night, and with Michael Thomas and a talented array of other offensive weapons on tap in next Sunday evening's divisional-round matchup versus the Saints, Davis could be in for another busy outing.
Davis (groin) is active for Sunday's game against Washington.
Davis missed the final two games of the regular season, but he'll tough it out for the first playoff game in his three-year career. Through 14 games this season, Davis has produced 68 tackles, 18 pass breakups and four interceptions.
Davis (groin) is expected to play Saturday according to a source, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
After participating in full during Thursday's practice, Davis is looking hopeful to play in Saturday's wild-card matchup against Washington. After missing last week to continue to heal from his injury, the cornerback is likely to appear in the team's first postseason game.
Coach Bruce Arians said Thursday that Davis (groin) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's wild-card matchup against Washington, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Davis practiced in full Thursday after being a non-participant Tuesday and limited Wednesday. The starting safety's calf injury forced him to miss the final two games of the regular season for Tampa Bay, but it looks like has a chance to return for the team's first postseason matchup.
Davis (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Davis began the week as a non-participant, so it's encouraging to see him back on the field in even a limited capacity. After closing out the regular season with back-to-back missed games, the starting safety can't be considered a lock to return for Saturday's wild-catch matchup in Washington. He'll have one more chance to upgrade his practice reps before the Buccaneers assign him a game-day injury designation.
Davis (groin) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Davis missed the final two regular-season games, and he's in danger of missing his first career playoff contest. The Buccaneers will actually take the field Wednesday, at which point we'll have a better grasp on his status. If Davis ends up sitting out again, both Jamel Dean and Ross Cockrell will benefit in their respective snap counts.
Davis (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Tampa Bay can lock up the NFC's No. 5 seed with a win over Atlanta on Sunday, though its defense will have to proceed devoid of its top cornerback for the NFC South clash. Davis submitted limited practices Wednesday and Friday, sandwiched by a missed session Thursday, and he was considered doubtful coming into the weekend. Week 17 will mark a second consecutive absence for Davis to close out the regular season, but he'll aim to rebound in time for a road playoff game Jan. 9 or 10.
Davis (groin) is tagged as doubtful for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta.
Davis returned to practice in a limited fashion Friday after sitting out entirely Thursday, but he is not expected to play in the regular-season finale. According to Greg Auman of The Athletic, coach Bruce Arians has not completely closed the door on Davis playing, though the Bucs are more likely than not to give the cornerback an extra week to heal in preparation for the postseason.
Davis (groin) did not practice Thursday.
Davis was limited in Wednesday's practice, so his complete lack of activity Thursday could be indicative of a setback. Barring a change of pace during Friday's practice, it looks like Davis' groin injury may cause him to close out the regular season with back-to-back absences.
Davis (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Davis missed a trio of practices last week before being forced to sit out versus the Lions, so it's encouraging to see him now handling at least limited reps. The third-year pro was labeled a game-time decision Week 16, so as long as he avoids any setbacks he could have a solid shot at returning versus Atlanta on Sunday.
Davis (groin) is listed as inactive for Saturday's game against the Lions.
Davis had been enjoying an outstanding 2020 campaign prior to suffering his mid-game groin injury last Sunday against Atlanta, recording four interceptions and an eye-popping 18 pass deflections while containing opponents to an 87.6 passer rating over 105 targets in coverage. A Week 16 absence against Detroit will mark the 23-year-old's first of the season. With Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford active for the Saturday showdown, Jamel Dean is likely to see an uptick in usage for the Buccaneers' secondary.
Davis (groin) is tagged as doubtful for Saturday's game against Detroit.
Davis was previously called a game-time decision by coach Bruce Arians, but his doubtful tag suggests that the cornerback won't be available for the Saturday contest. The designation is not surprising considering Davis' inability to practice at all this week. The absence will be Davis' first this season.
Davis (groin) is expected to be a game-decision for Saturday's clash against Detroit, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Davis hurt his groin in Sunday's victory over the Falcons and was unable to practice Tuesday or Wednesday this week. While he has not yet been ruled out for Saturday, coach Bruce Arians noted Thursday that Davis will be a game-time decision for the contest. If Davis can't suit up, Herb Miller is expected to be called up from the practice squad, while Tampa Bay's secondary is deep enough to cover for Davis in his absence.
Davis (groin) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.
Davis left this past Sunday's win over the Falcons with a groin injury, and he's been listed as a DNP for the first two days of practice. The third-year cornerback is trending in the wrong direction for Saturday's matchup gainst the Lions, but a return to the practice field in any capacity Thursday would serve as meaningful progress. Jamel Dean and Ross Cockrell will be the main beneficiaries if Davis sits out.
Davis won't return to Sunday's game against the Falcons with a groin injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
The 23-year-old had a busy afternoon prior to the injury, racking up nine total tackles and one pass defensed. Jamel Dean and Ross Cockrell could see more defensive snaps with Davis sidelined.
Davis recorded five solo tackles and defensed two passes in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Davis' final numbers were perfectly acceptable for a cornerback from an IDP perspective, but he was repeatedly embarrassed by Tyreek Hill during the speedster's record-setting performance as well. Naturally, Hill has handed out such treatment to more than his fair share of defenders thus far in his storied career, so Davis is far from alone in that regard. However, it's worth noting Hill's repeated success against him helped push the completion percentage allowed by Davis in primary coverage on the season over the 50.0 percent mark (51.8), which currently ranks as the highest figure of the corner's two-plus seasons. Additionally, the five touchdowns Davis has now surrendered leave him just one short of tying the career high he set in that category during the 2019 season.
Davis (knee) recorded three tackles (two solo) and defensed a pass in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
The third-year cornerback shook off the knee issue that he'd nursed during the week to play 47 out of a possible 48 snaps on defense and an additional 10 on special teams. Davis also got his hands on the ball on one occasion, pushing his pass breakups to 14 through 10 games and remaining on a pace to comfortably exceed last season's impressive 19 defensed passes.
