Davis (leg, knee) will be placed in 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 nine-to-twelve months, so there is optimism he will be ready for the beginning of next season. Look for Cam Sims and Simmie Cobbs to have a chance at Davis' role in the Redskins' receiving corps.
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 in Saturday's practice, is slated to undergo surgery in the near future and will be placed on injured reserve before long.
Davis tried to leave the field on his own at Saturday's practice, but he ultimately required assistance, and the reason has now been revealed. If the ACL tear is confirmed, it will be the team's second in three days following rookie running back Derrius Guice's on Thursday. Another update should be available after Davis has an MRI.
Davis was carted off the field during Saturday's practice after suffering an apparent rightu 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 June minicamp 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 and now figures to compete with Trey Quinn, Brian Quick and a host of undrafted rookies for what likely will be one or two roster spots. The Georgia State University product was one of the stars of last year's combine, posting a 4.44-second 40-yard dash and 41-inch vertical at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds. He could eventually develop into a starter but would be lucky to push Maurice Harris for the No. 4 spot this year.
