Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is dealing with a concussion and says he's in line to play as he normally would. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was given the baseline test and does not have a concussion. Davis took a big hit to the head in the fourth quarter of last weekend's loss to the St. Louis Rams. Davis said (via WJFK-FM's Grant Paulsen) that he is in line to practice as play as he normally would. The Redskins play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Redskins have enough injuries to worry about on defense, so it's good news that Davis is not dealing with a concussion. Davis has just four catches for 52 yards through two games, a disappointing total for fantasy owners. He is a No. 2 fantasy tight end this week.
