Davis (knee) likely will start the regular season on the PUP list, Jake Kring-Schreifels and Kyle Stackpole of redskins.com report.
Davis suffered a devastating injury last August, fracturing his tibia and tearing three major ligaments (ACL, PCL, LCL) in his right knee. He said in February that he didn't expect to be ready for training camp, perhaps hinting at a third consecutive redshirt season after he spent most of his rookie year on the practice squad and all of 2018 on injured reserve. Davis was one of the stars of the 2017 combine, running a 4.44-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds, and placing first or second among wide receivers in the broad jump (136 inches), vertical jump (41 in.) and bench press (19). The 2017 sixth-round pick caught 222 passes for 3,391 yards and 17 touchdowns as a four-year starter at Georgia State.
Davis (knee/leg) believes he's seven months away from a full recovery and doesn't expect to be ready for training camp, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports.
The 2017 sixth-round pick suffered a devastating injury Aug. 11, fracturing his right tibia in addition to tearing the ACL, PCL and LCL in his knee. He was unable to walk without crutches until two months after the incident and will now require a long period of time to rebuild strength in the injured leg. Davis hopes to contribute at some point in 2019, but it may be more realistic for him to compete for a roster spot in 2020. He only has one NFL appearance to his name after having spent most of 2017 on the practice squad and all of 2018 on injured reserve.
Davis (leg, knee) will be placed on injured reserve, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.
Davis broke his leg and tore his LCL in Saturday's practice, so Sunday's move to IR is merely a formality. His recovery process will take 9-to-12 months, so there is optimism he will be ready for the beginning of next season. Look for Cam Sims and Simmie Cobbs to compete for Davis' spot at the bottom of the depth chart.
A recent MRI revealed that Davis sustained a broken leg and torn LCL, ending his season, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
The positive side of this is that he avoided both nerve damage and a torn ACL, which the team initially feared. Davis, who went down during Saturday's practice, is slated to undergo surgery in the near future and will be placed on injured reserve before long. His absence could create an opening for undrafted rookies Simmie Cobbs and Cam Sims to push for a spot on the 53-man roster.
The initial tests for Davis (knee) suggest he may have suffered a torn ACL, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Davis tried to leave the field on his own at Saturday's practice, but he ultimately required assistance, and apparently for good reason. A season-ending injury for Davis would improve the odds for Brian Quick (thigh) and/or Trey Quinn (stomach) to stick around on the 53-man roster. The Redskins likely will provide another update after Davis has an MRI.
Davis was carted off the field during Saturday's practice after suffering an apparent right knee injury, JP Finlay of NBCSports.com reports.
Davis attempted to limp off the field after going down in 7-on-7 action, but trainers were ultimately needed to assist him to the locker room. Washington's receiving corps continues to be hampered by injuries, with Jamison Crowder (groin), Josh Doctson (shoulder), Brian Quick (thigh) and Trey Quinn (stomach) all dealing with issues of their own.
Davis (undisclosed) was healthy for the Redskins' minicamp practices earlier in June and appeared much improved from last year, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.
A 2017 sixth-round pick, Davis spent most of last season on the practice squad. He's now expected to compete with Trey Quinn, Brian Quick and a host of undrafted rookies for what likely will be one or two roster spots at receiver. The Georgia State product was one of the stars of last year's NFL Combine, posting a 4.44-second 40-yard dash time and 41-inch vertical leap while checking in at 6-foot-3 and 219 pounds. He could eventually develop into a starter for Washington but would be lucky to push Maurice Harris for the No. 4 spot in 2018.
Davis was held out of Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Davis is reportedly present at the team facility, but it isn't clear what exactly is keeping him off the practice field. The 2017 sixth-round pick is currently competing with a slew of other depth wideouts for slotting behind the Redskins' top trio of Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, and Josh Doctson.
Davis failed to record a reception in the one game he played for the Redskins in 2017.
The 2017 sixth-round selection found himself on the very bottom of Washington's depth chart this season, spending the majority of the year on the practice squad. He'll now have the offseason to grow in Matt Cavanaugh's offense as one of four receivers currently under contract for next season.
Davis (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Giants.
Davis entered the concussion protocol after last week's game against Denver and failed to clear it in time for the season finale. His absence shouldn't impact the offense greatly, as he is little more than a depth receiver.
Davis (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Davis was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday but is yet to be officially cleared from the concussion protocol. The 22-year-old could still be cleared over the weekend, but he's slated for a limited offensive role even if available for the season finale.
Davis (concussion) was a limited participant at the Redskins' practice Thursday.
Davis did not practice Wednesday after sustaining the concussion in Sunday's win over the Broncos, and he's yet to clear the league-mandated protocol. The 22-year-old still has a chance to prove his progress through the protocol, but he appears headed towards a questionable tag for Week 17.
Davis (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Davis remains in the NFL's concussion protocol after suffering the head injury in Sunday's 27-11 win over the Broncos. He'll likely need to put in at least one full practice this week and receive clearance from an independent neurologist by Friday or Saturday in order to suit up in the Redskins' season finale against the Giants. Davis is at the bottom of Washington's depth chart at receiver and would likely be limited to a special-teams role if he's active Week 17.
Davis entered the league's concussion protocol following Sunday's game.
If Davis is to play in Week 17, he'll have to clear the league's concussion protocol sometime during the week. If he can't play, Brian Quick would likely consume most of the leftover depth production.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week, Davis wasn't able to parlay the appointment into an immediate spot on the game day active list, even with fellow wideout Maurice Harris (concussion) unavailable. The Redskins are keeping only four wide receivers active for the contest, relegating Davis to street clothes.
Davis was promoted to the active roster Monday.
Davis likely won't be used outside of special teams. Nonetheless, the promotion yields a positive outlook for his future in the league, if not with the Redskins.
The Redskins signed Davis to the practice squad Sunday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.
The sixth-round pick failed to make the 53-man roster but will get to spend the season with the team as a member of the practice squad. Head coach Jay Gruden was impressed with the rookie throughout the preseason. "Robert has done some good things, not just catching the ball but blocking," Gruden noted. Should the Redskins endure injuries at wideout, it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis get the call up midway through the year.
Davis was waived by the Redskins on Saturday.
The 2017 sixth-round pick by the Redskins had a solid training camp highlighted by four receptions for 36 yards in the second preseason game. Davis was fighting an uphill battle against a loaded receiving corps in Washington, though. Expect the Georgia State product to land on his feet and fight his way up from the practice squad in Washington or elsewhere.
Davis caught four of five targets for 36 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Packers.
Davis, a sixth-round selection in April's draft, has been trying to make a name for himself in a crowded Redskins receiving corps, and his performance Saturday certainly helped his cause. His four receptions led all Washington wideouts, and while most of his snaps came late in the second half, Davis seemed to have a good connection with both Colt McCoy and Nate Sudfeld. However, it may be difficult for the 22-year-old to find reps Sunday against the Bengals, as the starters are likely to see the bulk of the action in the Redskins' third preseason contest.
