Davis was claimed by the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Davis did not remain unemployed long. One day after the Giants released him, the Browns swooped in. Davis has recorded 39 tackles, two sacks, five quarterback hits and one pass defensed over 18 games since joining the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Davis was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Davis missed Weeks 4 and 5 with a concussion but he's been a healthy scratch for two of the last three games. The 23-year-old had six tackles (three solo) in four games for the Giants this year.
Davis (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Lions, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.
Davis will get the healthy scratch for the second time this season, and he started the year as a starter for the Giants. It obviously hasn't gone according to plan, as the 23-year-old has played just 60 defensive snaps this campaign, accumulating six tackles (three solo). David Mayo and Josiah Tauaefa will act as the team's depth inside linebackers for the game Sunday.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Davis, who cleared the league's concussion protocol early this week, appears to be a healthy scratch. With Ryan Connelly (knee) on injured reserve, Nathan Stupar and Tuzar Skipper figure to see larger roles within the Giants' linebacker corps.
Davis cleared the concussion protocol Monday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.
Davis was a full participant in Monday's practice and appears back to full health. With Ryan Connelly (knee) done for the season, Davis projects to play a starting role in New York's linebacker corps versus the Patriots on Thursday.
Davis (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Davis suffered the concussion Week 3 against the Buccaneers and was a limited participant at practice this week, but he'll have to wait until next week to make his return. Fellow linebacker Alec Ogletree (hamstring) was also ruled out. According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com, David Mayo will step into the starting role at inside linebacker while Nathan Stupar and Josiah Tauaefa could also see increased reps.
Davis (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Davis was able to participate in non-contact football activities Thursday, and he appears to be nearing the final steps of the league's concussion protocol. If Davis manages to receive clearance from an independent neurologist in time to suit up Sunday against the Vikings, he could have notable IDP value following the placement of Ryan Connelly (knee) on IR.
Davis (concussion) is wearing a non-contact jersey in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Davis is progressing through the league's five-step concussion protocol. He appears to have a shot at suiting up Sunday versus the Vikings, but he'll first need to be fully cleared by an independent neurologist. If Davis is able to go, he could be a solid IDP play with Alec Ogletree (hamstring) banged up and Ryan Connelly (knee) out for the season.
Davis (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Davis sustained the concussion during last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and did not practice this week, so it's no surprise he's unavailable for Week 4. The 23-year-old will remain sidelined until he fully clears the concussion protocol.
Davis (concussion) won't return to Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Davis lost his starting job to Ryan Connelly last week, and now he's dealing with a concussion. He'll need to clear the league's protocol before he can play, with his next chance coming Week 4 versus the Redskins.
Davis is expected to see a reduction in snaps versus the Bills on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Davis is expected to cede snaps to Ryan Connelly in Week 2, and he could be in danger of being surpassed on the depth chart. It remains to be seen how things will shake out at the position, but it appears increasingly possible that Davis and Connelly could form a rotation of sorts at inside linebacker.
Davis (illness) wasn't listed on the Giants' injury report Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Davis didn't feel well for the later part of preseason. He appears to be back to full strength, which is positive news for the Giants since he's their projected starting inside linebacker. Davis averaged 24.5 defensive snaps per game last year, so he has experience at the position and is capable of stepping up.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Davis is "not feeling well" and did not practice Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Davis projects to start at inside linebacker for the Giants, so it makes sense that the team would take a cautious approach to his participation while ill. The second-year pro will work to get fully healthy and return to practice without missing much time.
Davis will start at inside linebacker in place of the injured Alec Ogletree (concussion) during Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Davis posted a career-high eight tackles and also added a sack during the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Colts. The rookie linebacker figures to see a healthy snap count again Sunday next to fellow starter B.J. Goodson.
Davis notched seven tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 28-27 win over the Colts.
Davis drew the start at inside linebacker in place of Alec Ogletree (concussion), and he made the best of his increased workload with a season-high seven tackles. The undrafted rookie also managed to sack quarterback Andrew Luck and now has two sacks on the year. If Ogletree is unable to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol, Davis could command another start versus the Cowboys in Week 17.
Davis will replace Alec Ogletree (concussion) at inside linebacker during Sunday's game versus the Colts.
Davis' duties have been geared toward a defensive role lately, and he'll finally have a chance to step in as a starter. The undrafted rookie has 21 tackles and a sack this year and will be tough to depend on in IDP settings.
Davis (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Redskins.
Davis left Week 13's game versus the Bears early with an ankle injury and didn't return. He was able to work at practice this week, though, and will be ready for a divisional matchup. His role in the defense will remain limited behind Alec Ogletree and B.J. Goodson.
Davis (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Davis drew the start at inside linebacker last week against the Bears with B.J. Goodson (neck) sidelined, but he was forced to exit with an injury of his own. Ukeme Eligwe would likely benefit from an increased role if neither Goodson or Eligwe are able to suit up at Washington.
Davis is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears due to an ankle injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.
With Davis sidelined, second-year linebacker Ukeme Eligwe could receive an uptick in defensive snaps.
Davis will draw the start at inside linebacker Sunday against the Bears.
Davis saw an uptick in snaps the past two weeks and is drawing the start in place of B.J. Goodson (neck). Look for Davis to see even more snaps in Week 13 before likely returning to a backup role whenever Goodson is able to play.
