Carolina and former Georgia linebacker Thomas Davis reported no set backs as he tries to recover from a broken arm.
The Panthers held contact practice on Friday before leaving for the Super Bowl and a light workout on Monday. They won’t practice today, before returning to the field on Wednesday.
“I was excited, just really glad to be back out there with my teammates, running around, moving around, being active (and) not really feeling any pain,” said Davis, who will try to play with a cast. “So, that was probably the best part of the day.”
A standout performer at Georgia, Davis was a first-team All-SEC selection and a consensus first-team All-American after his junior season in 2004. In 38 career games for the Bulldogs, he recorded 272 tackles, 17 for a loss, 10.5 sacks, and 3 interceptions. He was a first-round pick (14th overall) by the Carolina Panthers in the 2005 NFL Draft.
Davis believes he’ll be ready for the game.
“Without a doubt, I will be there playing on Super Bowl Sunday,” Davis said.
