Washington Redskins TE Fred Davis "Stunned" By RG3's Progress


Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is recovering from a torn Achilles’ tendon and is currently a free agent. As he rehabs to get ready for the upcoming NFL season he hopes to remain with the only NFL team he’s played for.

“I definitely would [like to stay], but at the end of the day, I’ll play wherever,” Davis said. “It doesn’t matter to me. It’s about football to me. I would like to stay here, but if I can’t, I’m fine with that as well.”

One of the hurdles facing Davis, aside from his Achilles tendon, is the $18 million salary cap penalty facing the Redskins. But his rehab is going well.

“I’m good,” Davis said, via CSN Washington. “I’m just rehabbing and working out right now. I started running a couple of weeks ago. I’m back on my pace. A little bit ahead of schedule, which is really good.”

Davis isn’t the only Redskins player recovering from a torn ligament, quarterback Robert Griffin III is recovering from an ACL injury. And like Davis, he is ahead of schedule.

“He definitely looks really good,” Davis said of RG3. “You can barely even tell that he’s hurt. He’s doing every drill. He looks comfortable and normal to me. When he first got back, I was surprised, like, ‘Did you just have surgery?’

“He works hard,” Davis added. “Whenever he says he’s going to do something, he’s going to do it. I believe that he’ll be back sooner than people expect.”
