Falcons WR Drew Davis out six weeks after foot surgery 

By mcrcunn02

Drew Davis

Falcons reserve wide receiver Drew Davis had surgery to repair an unspecified foot injury and will miss the next six weeks, according to the team.

The Falcons placed Davis on the physically unable to perform list for training camp. The Falcons open practice on July 25, meaning Davis would miss about three weeks of camp under the timetable announced by the team.

“Drew felt some discomfort in his foot at the end of minicamp,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said in a statement released by the team. “We decided to send him to the doctors for some evaluations and it was determined he had suffered an injury that would require a procedure. He recently had the procedure done and we expect him to miss around six weeks.”

Davis has been a top special-teams player for the Falcons since signing as a college free agent in July 2011. He started three games for the Falcons in 2013 after injuries to Julio Jones and Roddy White thinned out the position and had 12 receptions for 216 yards and two touchdowns.

Davis stepped in when we needed him and did fine. It wasn't his lack of performance when he got playing time, it was the O-Line not giving Ryan time to pass. A lot of the Falcon's O-plays tend to take a little time to develop for some reason. Not many quick slants and such. Davis tended to do well on those short yard pass - yards after the catch plays. We just didn't run many of them. I wish him well and a speedy recovery. Not a terrible back up player. Could be worse.

So all this neuroathletic technology can't seem to guard against lower body injuries that seem to keep plaguing this franchise.

You're right. The same guy who keeps acquiring talent from Wisconsin.

He didn't draft any of those folks! Shoot, he didn't draft the best of the Wisconsin centers! Tell us again how great Konz is.

And we have none of them on this team idiot. Plus Wisconsin has no business claiming Wilson. I'm not that gullible. Also that list is pretty small. Try a real college football team for once, south of the Mason-Dixon line. The list just might quadruple. Fact, not opinion.

@slydawg Idiot? Why behave like JSSN? If you disagree with someone on here have some class about it. Maybe you should argue with UW,who do indeed 'claim' Wilson,who WENT THERE:http://www.uwbadgers.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/wilson_russell00.html  As far as a bigger list,here ya go,I was just listing the big name guys.http://www.uwbadgers.com/sports/m-footbl/Badgers-in-the-NFL.html Anyone who routinely disparages one of the oldest most revered college football programs in the country the way you do is only showing their ignorance.

Wisconsin only won 7 or more games 9 times between 1912 and 1981.  Barry Alvarez made them credible, Now they had some all-time greats on the campus like Alan Ameche, but they only had 3 Rose Bowls in that entire time. But look, you'll try find a way to try to spin that too! The last 30 years have been the golden era of Badger football!

Why are you bringing me into your pissing contest? "Class?" What in the heck do you know about polite behavior? I can't stop laughing at that inference! Next you'll be saying Tech should claim Quincy Carter. Incredible!

Wilson was a rent a player just like Jeremiah Masoli was at Ole Miss! His undergraduate degree reads the North Carolina State University! Russell Wilson spends more time back at NC State than at Wisconsin. They should thank that control freak Tom O'Brien every day for the Pay Day loan that was Russell Wilson at "On Wisconsin!" He deserves everyday of unemployment he enjoyed! Enjoy that Master's Degree from Madison Russell, love partying there back in the day! Yeah, I said it!

@JSSN @zuzu331 Yeah,I know all about Al Ameche,my Dad played with him. Not sure what points youre making there. I said UW has a long and rich History and is revered as one of the best programs in the nation,all of which remains valid.
