Trevor Davis

In his first action back from injury, Trevor Davis put on quite the show. Davis showed why he has been praised by the coaches prior to and since his return from injury.

Davis was a one-man wrecking crew in the first half. He finished with 113 all-purpose yards in the first half. Davis had a 17-yard punt return, an 18-yard run on a reverse, and topped it all of with five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown. Even for the preseason, that’s impressive.

The battle at wide receiver has been as good as a position battle as we have seen this summer. And Davis made the decisions even more difficult after his performance against the Raiders.

Sadly, St. Brown’s injury may have opened one more spot. But, even had it not, Davis took a big leap in the right direction.

Davis’ size, speed and special teams acumen fits very well with what the team needs. The key for Davis will be staying healthy. Hamstring injuries last year caused Davis to miss all but two games, and a stinger this year forced him to miss the first two preseason games.

That didn’t seem to matter as Davis put up big numbers while hauling in tough catches to make sure all the talk doesn’t stay with Allen Lazard and Darrius Shepherd.
