Limited to one catch Sunday

Davis secured one of three targets for 13 yards in the Bills' 23-20 win over the Ravens on Sunday.

Analysis: The speedster was once again questionable with an ankle issue coming into the day, but he was able to play through it without any obvious issue. However, the Ravens' defense made life more difficult than usual on Josh Allen, leading to Davis' meager showing. He'll look to bounce back from his season-low totals at the expense of the Steelers defense in a Week 5 home matchup.

Suits up Sunday

Davis (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: After being inactive in Week 2, Davis suited up for last weekend's loss to the Dolphins, logging 88 of a possible 92 snaps on offense en route to catching three of his six targets for 37 yards. However, after aggravating his ankle injury since then, perJoe Buscaglia of The Athletic, the wideout missed practice Thursday, before returning to a limited session, after which Davis relayed that his ankle felt good and that he intended to play Sunday. With that outcome now confirmed, Davis is slated to work opposite top wideout Stefon Diggs and barring any in-game setbacks should see his share of snaps and targets from QB Josh Allen versus a Baltimore defense that has allowed a league-high average of 353.3 passing yards through the first three games of the 2022 season.

Likely available Sunday

Davis (ankle), officially listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Davis logged a pair of limited practices throughout the week, which came on Wednesday and Friday. He played through the same ankle issue in Week 3 and hauled in three of six targets for 37 yards in a relatively disappointing performance. However, if he's able to play, Davis could be in line for a bounceback effort against a Baltimore secondary that has allowed strong stat lines to opposing receivers early on in the campaign.

Questionable for Week 4

Davis (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's 1:00 ET game in Baltimore.

Analysis: Davis has two limited showings this week sandwiched around a DNP-Thursday, and his comments this week seem to indicate he plans on playing Sunday. He was out there for 96 percent of the plays in the Week 3 loss to Miami, but between his 3-37-0 line, his Week 2 absence and his limited practice availability this week, it's clear he's not operating at anywhere near 100 percent just yet.

Sep 30, 2022 11:19 AM EST


Spotted at practice

Davis (ankle) was present for Friday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It remains to be seen how the Bills list his participation level and subsequent Week 4 injury status, but Davis' presence on the field Friday is nonetheless encouraging after he was listed as a non-participant Thursday.

Sep 30, 2022 9:22 AM EST



Logs DNP on Thursday

Davis (ankle) didn't practice Thursday.

Analysis: After being a limited practice participant Wednesday, Davis was listed as a non-participant Thursday. It remains to be seen whether that's the result of a setback or simply for maintenance purposes, but more context on that front should arrive no later than Friday afternoon, when the Bills post their final injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Sep 29, 2022 12:36 PM EST


Not practicing Thursday

Davis (ankle) didn't participate in the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It remains to be seen if the Bills officially list Davis as a non-participant Thursday, but if they do, what the wideout is able to do during Friday's session will be offer added context regarding his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Davis approached Week 3 action listed as questionable, but managed to play 88 of a possible 92 snaps on offense in Buffalo's 21-19 loss to the Dolphins.

Sep 29, 2022 10:32 AM EST


Still listed with ankle injury

Davis (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Davis returned for Week 3 after missing Week 2, playing 96 percent of snaps on offense and catching three of six targets for 37 yards in the 21-19 loss to Miami. He's on track to face a struggling Ravens secondary this Sunday in Baltimore.

Sep 28, 2022 2:01 PM EST


Three catches in Week 3 return

Davis (ankle) brought in three of six targets for 37 yards in the Bills' 21-19 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

Analysis: Davis made his return from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury and had a relatively quiet day in the narrow loss. The speedster did see a solid tally of targets from Josh Allen, and it's certainly possible he still was experiencing at least mild physical limitations just eight days removed from having suffered the sprain two days before the Week 2 win over the Titans. Davis will likely play a more expansive role in a Week 4 road showdown against the Ravens that could well be a wire-to-wire battle.

Sep 25, 2022 3:49 PM EST


Suiting up, as expected

Davis (ankle) is active Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Analysis: An ankle injury forced Davis to miss a Week 2 showdown with the Titans, but he'll be back in action Sunday, confirming earlier reports that the wideout would play. While Stefon Diggs had a career day in his absence, Davis should now see a piece of that pie, plus push the likes of Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder back down in the pecking order for targets.

Sep 25, 2022 8:31 AM EST


Still expected to play

Davis (ankle) is expected to suit up versus the Dolphins on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Davis is officially listed as questionable after having missed Monday's win over the Titans, but the expectation remains that he will return for Sunday's divisional matchup against Miami. The final word on his status will be disclosed prior to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, and if Davis does suit up it's possible that his workload could be limited to some extent.

Sep 25, 2022 2:46 AM EST


Listed as questionable

Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

Analysis: Per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com, when asked Thursday how optimistic he was about playing Sunday, Davis indicated "100 percent." That said, given his official 'questionable' injury designation, it will be worth confirming Davis' Week 3 status ahead of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. If he's available, Davis -- who was inactive for this past Monday's win over the Titans -- would be in line to reprise his key role in Buffalo's offense alongside fellow WR Stefon Diggs.

Sep 23, 2022 12:19 PM EST


Limited Thursday, expects to play

Davis (ankle) remained limited at practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Matt Parrino of The Syracuse Post-Standard notes that while Davis practiced with his right ankle heavily taped up Thursday, the wideout "seemed to hold up OK after some hard stops." For his part, Davis has indicated that he's 100 percent optimistic about playing Sunday against the Dolphins, a notion that would be solidified by a full practice listing for him Friday.

Sep 22, 2022 12:38 PM EST


Expects to play in Week 3

When asked how optimistic he is about playing Sunday against the Dolphins, Davis said, "100 percent," Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis, who was inactive for this past Monday's win over the Titans, logged a limited practice Wednesday, but it looks like he's trending toward a return to action this weekend, barring any setbacks. A full practice on his part Thursday or Friday would solidify that notion.

Sep 22, 2022 11:31 AM EST


Listed as limited

Davis (ankle) was listed as limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Though Davis was inactive for this past Monday's win over the Titans, his listed limited practice participation Wednesday is a sign that the wideout could be back in action this weekend against Miami. If, however, Davis is out or limited Sunday, Jake Kumerow would be in line to log added Week 3 WR snaps opposite Stefon Diggs.

Sep 21, 2022 12:38 PM EST


Inactive Monday

Davis (ankle) is inactive for Monday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: With Davis inactive Monday after being added to the Bills' injury report Saturday, look for Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder to see added opportunities behind top wideout Stefon Diggs, with Jake Kumerow and rookie Khalil Shakir rounding out the team's Week 2 WR corps. Davis will now look to heal up in time for Buffalo's Week 3 contest against the Dolphins this coming Sunday.

Sep 19, 2022 2:49 PM EST


Not expected to play Monday

Davis (ankle) is not expected to play Monday night against the Titans, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Official confirmation of Davis' Week 2 status will arrive upon the release of the Bills' inactives ahead of Monday's 7:15 ET kickoff, but if the wideout is indeed sidelined, look for Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder to see added opportunities in the team's passing offense behind top wideout Stefon Diggs.

Sep 19, 2022 2:24 PM EST


Looking iffy for Monday

Davis, who was added to the Bills' injury report Saturday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Titans, is dealing with an ankle sprain that he suffered on a non-contact play during the team's final practice of the week, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Garofolo notes that Davis may be more on the "doubtful side of questionable" as the first wave of games kick off Sunday, but both the wideout and Bills are holding out hope that he demonstrates enough improvement in the next 24 hours to gain clearance for Monday night. More information regarding which direction Davis is trending should be available a few hours prior to Monday's 7:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but fantasy managers desperate to avoid taking a zero at any spot in their lineups this week may be best off replacing the 23-year-old with another option.

Sep 18, 2022 9:34 AM EST


Surprise addition to injury report

Davis was added to the injury report Saturday with an ankle injury and is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Titans.

Analysis: Davis did practice in limited fashion Saturday, but it's obviously not an ideal situation to see the stud wide receiver appear on the injury report so late into the week. Expect more information to trickle out regarding Davis' status prior to the 7:15 PM ET kickoff Monday.

Sep 17, 2022 11:52 AM EST


Scores touchdown in Week 1 win

Davis brought in four of five targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 31-10 win over the Rams on Thursday night.

Analysis: Although teammate Stefon Diggs stole the spotlight with an 8-122-1 line that included a spectacular 53-yard touchdown grab against Jalen Ramsey, Davis actually drew first blood on the defending champions with his 26-yard score in the first quarter. The speedster would go on to finish second in receptions and receiving yards to Diggs, and he also recorded the second-longest catch of the night, a 47-yard reception on the first play of the fourth quarter that helped set up a Bills touchdown. The start to Davis' tenure as the No. 2 receiver got off to a rousing start, one he'll look to build on at the expense of the Titans in a Week 2 home matchup on Monday night, Sept. 19.
