Jawill Davis: Cut by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers waived Davis on Saturday.

Davis' path to a roster spot in Green Bay was a difficult one in a receiving corps that includes another competent returner (Trevor Davis) that was drafted by the team. Considering three weeks remain of the preseason slate, Jawill Davis likely will get another shot elsewhere in the near future.

Packers' Jawill Davis: Plays in exhibition opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis played seven snaps on offense and three on special teams in Thursday's preseason opener, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. He recorded one kickoff return for 24 yards.

Davis ended last season on injured reserve with a knee injury, but his recovery went as planned, and he was able to take the field for the first game of the exhibition season. Davis' return skills help his chances of making the cut, but given the Packers' depth at wide receiver, he's going to need to make a few more plays in order to come away with a spot.

Packers' Jawill Davis: Joins Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (knee) signed a contract with the Packers on Monday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

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.

Jawill Davis: Waived by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (knee) 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.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Dealing with dislocated kneecap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

It's unclear how Davis injured his knee, but he'll finish his rookie campaign with just four catches across seven games, as the Giants primarily used him on special teams. Alonzo Russell will take his place on the 53-man roster.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Inactive for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the 49ers.

Davis suffered the concussion Week 6 against the Eagles and appears set to make his return to the field after he was a full practice participant Friday and Saturday. It has yet to be announced the 23-year-old has officially cleared the concussion protocol so he may still require clearance from an independent neurologist, but he appears on track to return to his role as the Giants' top option on kick returns.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Davis appears to be nearing a return to full health after coming out of a Week 6 loss to the Eagles with a concussion. If the depth wideout is able to clear the league's protocol for head injuries, he'll serve as the Giants' top kick returner during Monday's game against the 49ers.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Davis continues to progress in his recovery from a concussion sustained during a Week 8 loss to the Bengals. The depth wideout has missed two consecutive games while in the league's concussion protocol, and he should be considered questionable for Monday's contest against the 49ers. If Davis is unable to suit up, expect one of Odell Beckham, Corey Coleman or Antonio Hamilton to serve as the Giants' starting kick returner.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Ruled out Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Davis will miss his second consecutive game due to a concussion, leaving Quadree Henderson to serve as the Giants' top kick returner once more. With Davis sidelined, it's possible that 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman could see a slight uptick in snaps in his New York debut.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Officially out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Falcons.

Although Davis has an extra day of rest before before Monday's kickoff, he has been unable to clear the league's concussion protocol. With Russell Shepard questionable (neck) the Giants could have just three healthy wide receivers in Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Bennie Fowler. Davis will now set his sights on a Week 8 return.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Absent from practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (concussion) was unable to practice Friday.

Davis and the Giants have an extra day of rest as they play Monday night. If the 23-year-old is forced to miss time, Sterling Shepard or Odell Beckham could see extra work on special teams and Bennie Fowler could see more time on offense.

Giants' Jawill Davis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis agreed to a contract with the Giants on Friday.

Davis' spot on the 53-man roster comes in conjunction with the placement of Jonathan Stewart on injured reserve. With Cody Latimer (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints and Stacy Coley (hamstring) questionable, Davis will likely see work as a return man Week 4.
