Fred Davis injury: Redskins TE is pain-free

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Currently on a one-year contract in an effort to get his stock high again for a new deal, Davis reports that he is fully healthy and ready to go.

Redskins tight end Fred Davis tore his Achilles in Week 7 of last season and missed the rest of the year, but on Wednesday, Adam Caplan reported that Davis said he is completely pain-free and able to do everything he needs to do in practice:

"Oh, yeah. This is day six now and I haven’t had any pain in it. I’ve been going full-go, blocking, running routes, cutting. I feel really good. Just the only soreness I feel is just camp soreness – just a little bit. Other than that I feel pretty good."

The Redskins placed the franchise tag on Davis last year and he signed a one-year tender for $5.46 million. He was having a good season, catching 24 passes for 325 yards in seven games, but tore his Achilles tendon against the Giants. In 2011, Davis had a career-high 59 catches for 796 yards, really living up to the potential he showed when the Redskins drafted him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of USC.

Davis signed a new one-year deal with the Redskins during this offseason and is still just 27 years old.

Washington drafted tight end Jordan Reed out of Florida in the third round this year, and is bringing back tight ends Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul, potentially giving the 'Skins a deep group of players at the position. It appears as though Davis is now healthy and ready to compete.
