Davis made four catches for 40 yards across seven games with the Giants during his rookie season, before landing on injured reserve due to a dislocated patella. The Bethune-Cookman product also played special teams and served as a reserve return man.
Davis was waived by the Giants on Thursday.
Davis' 2018 season ended on injured reserve after sustaining a dislocated kneecap while dancing in the locker room. The Bethune-Cookman product logged 89 punt return yards and 171 kick return yards in 2018 and will hope to find another home after recovering from his knee injury.
Davis was placed on injured reserve Saturday due to a dislocated patella, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Giants announced earlier Saturday that Davis was placed on IR with a knee injury, but the specifics were previously undisclosed. The 23-year-old apparently suffered the minor dislocation while dancing in the locker room, bringing a bizarre end to his 2018 season.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Davis was a full participant in practice Friday and Saturday, but will remain sidelined for Monday's game against the 49ers. The reason for Davis' lack of availablity remains undisclosed, but it's worth noting that the Giants never officially announced that the 23-year-old had cleared the league's concussion protocol. With Davis inactive, Quandree Henderson will serve as New York's top kick returner.
