Apparently, there is no question about whether Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis will play, such that there was.
Via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, Davis told reporters today that he was recovering nicely after surgery to put a plate and “11 or 12 screws” in his broken right arm.
“I fully expect to play,” Davis said.
That’s no surprise considering what the 32-year-old linebacker has gone through already, having rehabbed from three torn ACLs to play at his highest level yet. Davis earned a Pro Bowl invite this year, the first of his career.
But now that he’s this close to achieving an even greater goal, he’s not going to let something as simple as a broken arm hold him back.
