Robert Davis: Dealing with injury

Davis was placed on the Raiders' practice squad injured list Tuesday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old dealt with a lower body injury in training camp before joining Las Vegas' practice squad in late September, though it's unclear if the current injury is related to the previous one. Davis appeared in six games between Philadelphia and Washington last year, catching two passes for 17 yards.

Robert Davis: Joining Vegas' practice squad

Davis (lower body) signed with the Raiders' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: With Las Vegas' receiving corps battling the injury bug, Davis has a chance to earn a promotion to the roster if he impresses on the practice squad. The 25-year-old Georgia State product is over the lower-body injury he was battling earlier this year.

Robert Davis: Given injury settlement

Davis (lower body) was released from the Eagles with an injury settlement Thursday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The wideout landing on the Eagles' reserve/injured list last week after suffering a lower body injury. He is now free to sign on with another club, if he can prove he is healthy.

Robert Davis: Reverts to IR

Davis (lower body) was shifted to the Eagles' injured reserve list Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

Analysis: Davis suffered the lower-body injury during Sunday's practice and it's considered to be serious. Davis will stay on the team's IR during the 2020 season barring an injury settlement.

Robert Davis: Let go by Eagles

The Eagles waived/injured Davis (lower body) Tuesday.

Analysis: Davis will revert to Philadelphia's injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers. He suffered a lower body injury during Sunday's practice and was labeled with a week-to-week recovery timetable.

Robert Davis: Set to miss time

Davis (lower body) missed Sunday's practice and is listed as week-to-week, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Davis appeared in six games with the Eagles in 2019 and also spent time on the team's practice squad. He's now competing for a depth role in Philadelphia's revamped wide receiver room, so missing a significant amount of time in training camp could be enough to seriously impact his chances of making the final roster.

Robert Davis: Gets into six games in 2019

Davis caught two of his five targets for 17 yards across six regular-season games in the 2019 season.

Analysis: Davis started the season with Washington and saw action in three straight games from Weeks 2 through 4 but was let go after the only game in which he recorded a catch for the Redskins. The Eagles added the 24-year-old to their practice squad within the week, and he ascended to the active roster in December after Alshon Jeffery was placed on IR. Davis would appear in four games with Philadelphia, including the Wild-Card loss, but was only targeted thrice that whole time, making just one six-yard grab. He'll likely be a fringe roster for the Eagles again next season.

Robert Davis: Catches lone target in win

Davis caught his only target for a six-yard gain in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Davis' only catch of the game got the Eagles a new set of downs on the way to their first touchdown of the day in the first quarter. He played a season high 29 snaps in the victory, third-most among Eagles receivers.

December 23, 2019 3:38 PM EST

Robert Davis: Not targeted in win

Davis played 16 snaps in Sunday's win over Washington.

Analysis: Davis didn't draw a target in the victory, but even so, he saw just two fewer than J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who played 71 snaps in the contest. The Georgia State product is unlikely to become a major factor before Nelson Agholor (knee) returns.

December 16, 2019 9:32 PM EST

Robert Davis: Likely to have regular role Week 15

Davis is expected to start at the outside receiver spot opposite J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in Sunday's game against the Redskins, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Promoted from the Eagles' practice squad just three days earlier, Davis looks poised to see significant snaps right away in his team debut with Nelson Agholor (knee) ruled out for the contest and Alshon Jeffery (foot) moving to injured reserve earlier this week. Along with Davis and Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward is expected to have a regular role at receiver out of the slot, but tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert are likely to rank as greater priorities in the Eagles' passing game than the three wideouts.

Robert Davis: Signed to active roster

Davis was promoted to the active roster by the Eagles on Thursday.

Analysis: Davis appeared in three games for Washington this season before he was released Oct. 1, but stayed in the division after signing with the Philadelphia practice squad a week later. He'll likely get his chance for revenge almost immediately, as the Eagles head to Washington on Sunday for a Week 15 matchup. Davis will be taking the roster spot of Alshon Jeffery, who was placed on IR with an unspecified foot injury in a corresponding move.

Robert Davis: Sticking in NFC East

Davis signed with the Eagles' practice squad Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Davis was let go by the Redskins less than a week ago, and he'll stay in the division. The Eagles have five wide receivers on their active roster, so Davis could get a call up to the big stage if they run into injuries.

October 7, 2019 10:37 AM EST

Robert Davis: Let go by Washington

Davis was released by the Redskins on Tuesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis' time with the Redskins ended up lasting just a few weeks. He only saw snaps in their most recent outing against the Giants with standout rookie Terry McLaurin (hamstring) sidelined, and he caught one pass for 11 yards.

October 1, 2019 7:43 AM EST

Robert Davis: Available Monday

Davis (knee) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Bears.

Analysis: Davis popped up on the injury report after not participating in Friday's practice. However, it looks like the Redskins were just opting to err on the side of caution. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for his normal role of providing depth at receiver and contributing on special teams.

September 21, 2019 12:46 PM EST

Robert Davis: Injury surfaces

Davis (knee) didn't participate in Friday's practice.

Analysis: Davis appeared on the injury report with a new injury Friday, and he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Saturday to have a chance at playing Monday versus the Bears. The third-year pro has two career games under his belt and zero catches so far.

September 20, 2019 3:11 PM EST

Robert Davis: Ascends to active roster

The Redskins promoted Davis to the active roster Friday.

Analysis: Davis spent the preseason with the Redskins but was cut Sept. 7 and relegated to the practice squad. Due to sticking with the team, Davis should understand the Redskins' system and will be ready if called upon. However, he's likely to stay in a special-teams role.

September 13, 2019 3:27 PM EST

Robert Davis: Let go by Redskins

Davis was waived by the Redskins on Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis' release means the Redskins are going with just five receivers heading into the season. Should he clear waivers, the team would likely be interested in bringing him back in the near future, as he impressed during camp. He was simply the odd man out in creating room for depth at tight end with Jordan Reed (concussion) unlikely to play in the opener.

Robert Davis: Keeps job after cut-downs

Davis earned a spot on the initial 53-man roster, the Redskins' official site reports.

Analysis: Coming back from a gruesome knee injury suffered last August, the 24-year-old wide receiver caught three of five targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason. Given his rare mix of size (6-3, 210), speed (4.44 40) and leaping ability (41-inch vertical), Davis could have a role in the offense as a part-time deep threat, though he'll presumably be stuck behind Paul Richardson, Terry McLaurin and Trey Quinn (thumb) when it comes to earning regular snaps.

Robert Davis: Runs past defense

Davis hauled in a 46-yard touchdown pass during Thursday's 30-10 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: There weren't too many big plays for Washington in the preseason opener, but Davis arguably provided the biggest. Davis reeled in Washington's lone touchdown on the team's second drive, slipping past the defense on a 46-yard bomb from Case Keenum. The George State product is buried on the depth chart at the moment, but has reportedly made similarly big plays downfield in practice. A few more and he'll make himself a hard cut at the end of the preseason.
