Fred Davis injures ankle, questionable for Sunday


Washington tight end Fred Davis has injured his ankle and is a late addition to this week’s injury report.

The team announced on Saturday that Davis suffered the injury and is now listed as questionable for Sunday against the Lions. There’s no word on when or how Davis injured his ankle; he was a full participant in every practice all week.

Although Davis is listed as Washington’s starter at tight end, he hasn’t been getting a lot of playing time. In last week’s game against the Packers, tight ends Logan Paulsen and Jordan Reed both got more snaps on offense than Davis, who was on the field for just 15 plays.

Davis said it was “a surprise” and “frustrating” that he spent most of the Packers game on the sideline. Now it’s possible that he’ll spend all of the Lions game on the sideline.
