Davion Davis News

Signs one-year deal with Houston

Davis (ankle) signed a one-year, $895,000 contract with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Davis was signed by the Texans off the Browns' practice squad at the beginning of October, but he made just two appearances with Houston before suffering a fractured left ankle that cost him the remainder of the campaign. Wilson relays that Davis' rehab from the surgery to repair the ankle is going well, and he should be ready to go for training camp ahead of the 2022 season.

Placed on IR

Davis (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Davis was ruled out for the remainder of the season Monday and appears to have undergone ankle surgery to repair a fractured lower leg suffered in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. The move should allow the Texans another roster spot to help fill out the bottom of their depth chart at wide receiver going forward.

Ruled out for season

Davis has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a fractured lower left leg, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Davis went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks and will be unavailable for the final four games of the season. The 25-year-old appeared in just two games during the 2021 campaign and hauled in one of three targets for 17 yards.

Won't return Sunday

Davis (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.

Analysis: The 5-foot-11 wideout caught one pass for 17 yards before suffering the ankle injury in the first quarter of Week 14. Phillip Dorsett and Chris Conley are expected to be the most likely beneficiaries of Davis' absence.

Questionable to return Sunday

Davis (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.

Analysis: The 5-foot-11 wideout caught one pass for 17 yards before leaving the Week 14 contest in the first quarter with an ankle injury. If he is unable to return, then Phillip Dorsett and Chris Conley will be the most likely beneficiaries.

Starts in Houston debut

Davis started at slot receiver and did not catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 31-0 loss to Indianaplolis.

Analysis: Davis had not dressed for any games since Houston signed him off the Browns' practice squad in early October, but he was the primary beneficiary of Danny Amendola's knee injury that forced him to injured reserve. He played 20 snaps, seven more than Chris Moore, who had filled in earlier this season when Amendola was unavailable. Amendola is expected to miss at least another three weeks, so Davis should have more opportunities to prove he warrants consideration for next year's roster.

Not on injury report

Davis (illness) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Analysis: Davis missed Week 12 against the Jets due to a non-COVID illness, but he's on track to be available for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Colts. The depth wideout has yet to suit up for any games since signing with the Texans on Oct. 5.

Dec 2, 2021 2:31 AM EST


Not playing Sunday

Davis is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets due to an illness.

Analysis: Davis had been listed as questionable heading into the weekend after he was held out of practice Wednesday through Friday due to the non-COVID-19-related illness. His absence shouldn't have any affect on the Texans' offensive game plan; Davis hasn't dressed in any games for Houston since signing with the team Oct. 5.

Signed by Houston

The Texans signed Davis off the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Davis led the Browns with 154 receiving yards during the preseason, but he was never able to crack the active roster. Nico Collins (shoulder) is already on IR, and Danny Amendola is dealing with a thigh injury that kept him out of Week 3, so Davis has a chance for an extended stay in Houston.

Joins Cleveland's practice squad

The Browns signed Davis to their practice squad after he cleared waivers Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Davis was suspended for the first two games of the regular season for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse. The 24-year-old wideout led the Browns with 154 receiving yards during the preseason. He is a possible candidate for elevation while the Browns deal with injuries to Odell Beckham (knee) and Jarvis Landry (knee).

Let go by Cleveland

The Browns waived Davis on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Davis was suspended for the first two games of the regular season for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse. The 24-year-old wideout led the Browns in receiving yards during the preseason and should garner some interest from around the league. He is eligible to return from suspension on Sept. 20.

Begins two-game suspension

Davis' two-game suspension officially commenced Tuesday, Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com reports.

Analysis: Davis was slapped with a two-game suspension during the offseason for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse. He will be eligibile to return on Sept. 20. He projects to add depth at wide receiver and contribute on special teams for the Browns this season.

Target leader Sumday

Davis (suspension) caught five of a team-high 10 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Falcons in preseason Week 3.

Analysis: Davis was slapped with a two-game suspension that doesn't apply until the regular season, but the 24-year-old wideout managed to raise his profile during the preseason. He caught at least three passes all three preseason games while leading the team with 154 receiving yards. Unfortunately, it's probably not enough to win a spot on the 53-man roster.

Handed two-game suspension

Davis has been suspended two games for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Davis will be eligible to finish out the preseason during Sunday's matchup against the Falcons, but he will be forced to sit out the first two weeks of the regular season. The second-year pro has strung together an impressive training camp to this point, with a team-high 157 receiving yards in the Browns' first two exhibition matchups.

Yardage leader again

Davis caught three of four targets for a team-high 45 yards in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Giants in Preseason Week 2.

Analysis: With starters Odell Beckham (knee) and Jarvis Landry sitting out the first two weeks of preseason, Davis is getting plenty of run and leads the Browns with 101 receiving yards. He also led the team with 56 yards last week against the Jaguars. Davis is unlikely to win a roster spot, as Cleveland has established players with system knowledge head of him, but he's done enough to be considered a candidate for the practice squad. That would also mean another team would be lurking if the Browns try to sneak him through waivers.

Shines in opener

Davis caught four of five targets for a team-high 56 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-13 victory over the Jaguars in Preseason Week 1.

Analysis: Davis made a high-point touchdown catch, leaping over the defender at the end of the first half. He managed to hang onto the ball while falling backwards in the end zone and keeping his feet in bounds. Davis continued his run with a deep-ball catch at Tuesday's practice, securing the ball as he fell to the ground along the sidelines, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports. "I think Davion is a great example of a young player who is just going to control the things that he can control," head coach Kevin Stefanski said. The Browns are loaded at wide receiver, and there's very little chance Davis makes the initial 53-man roster.

Joins Cleveland

Davis signed a contract with the Browns on Saturday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Davis was let go by the Vikings early in camp last year and didn't see game action in 2020. The 24-year-old appeared in two games during 2019 but is still looking for his first career reception.

Aug 1, 2021 4:32 PM EST


No court ruling

Davis' hearing Tuesday for a drunken driving arrest Oct. 26 came to no resolution, Nick Ferraro of the Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: According to the police report, the wide receiver was stopped in the early morning hours of Oct. 26 after a state trooper clocked him going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. Davis pleaded not guilty to the charges in December, and he's now due back in court Mar. 31 for a pre-trial hearing.

Inks futures deal with Minnesota

Davis signed a reserve/future deal with the Vikings on Monday.

Analysis: Davis appeared in two games for Minnesota this season but spent most of 2019 on the team's practice squad. The undrafted rookie out of Sam Houston State will now have full offseason with the team to prepare for his sophomore campaign.

Jan 13, 2020 9:25 PM EST


Facing legal troubles

Davis was charged with drunk driving in St. Paul on Monday, Paul Walsh of the Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: According to the police report, Davis was stopped about 2:55 a.m. on Oct. 26 after a state trooper clocked him going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. Davis has resided on the Vikings' practice squad since Oct. 14, and was active for Week's 8 and 10 this season.
