Davis said this week he has no limitations in his recovery from groin surgery ahead of voluntary offseason workouts later this month, Nick Veronica of The Buffalo News reports. "Everything is good, man," Davis said. "I'm making tremendous strides, tremendous progress. I'm on schedule to go, we're going into OTAs next week. There's no limitation, I'm able to do everything."

EDGE Analysis

Davis, one of Buffalo's bigger offseason signings, is expected to start at cornerback across from Tre'Davious White.

Davis is still recovering from his groin injury despite being medically cleared, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis battled through injury for much of last season, which eventually lead to his release by the Colts midway through the year. He received full medical clearance a few weeks ago but isn't quite back to 100 percent yet. It isn't expected that he'll be limited much, if at all, when the Bills' offseason program begins.

The Bills signed Davis to a one-year contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a pair of injury-derailed seasons, Davis is now recovered from season-ending surgery to repair a core injury and represents a quality signing for an up-and-coming Bills secondary that already features 2017 second-team All-Pro safety Micah Hyde along with Pro Football Focus' second-highest-graded cornerback, Tre'Davious White. However, even though he should immediately slide into the starting lineup, Davis has historically struggled to post enough tackles to belong in the top tiers of fantasy defensive backs.

Davis (groin) has been medically cleared, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After dealing with a groin injury that ultimately caused him to undergo season-ending surgery, Davis was released by the Colts back in November. Now, three months later, the cornerback has been medically cleared to return to football and will have the opportunity to sign with whichever team he chooses once free agency opens up in March. When healthy, Davis was one of the best defensive backs in the NFL, and teams will surely have plenty of interest in him on the open market this offseason.

Davis (groin) was released by the Colts on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had been dealing with a serious groin injury that was about to require season-ending surgery, but rather than place him on IR, the organization decided to part ways entirely. After earning two Pro Bowl selections during his time with the Colts, Davis was in line to hit free agency next season. He'll now be subject to waivers, though his plans to undergo surgery have not changed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Davis will undergo season-ending surgery on his groin, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

This injury has been lingering with Davis for months, and although he has suited up for five games this season, it's obvious this ailment took a turn for the worst. The ninth-year pro will likely be placed on injured reserve, and since he'll become a free agent after this season, there's no guarantee he returns to Indianapolis when he's healthy. Pierre Desir will take over as as a starter in Davis' absence.

Davis has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a groin injury, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis didn't travel with the Colts to Houston ahead of their Week 9 win over the Texans under mysterious circumstances, with head coach Chuck Pagano indicating that the cornerback was held out in a "coach's decision" rather than anything related to the groin issue that has bothered him for much of the season. While Davis indicated earlier this week that he would likely return to action Sunday and play through any lingering soreness in the groin, the Colts instead plan to give him only limited reps in practice this week and take the weekend off to rehab the injury. Once Davis returns to action, he may have to settle for a backup role behind Pierre Desir.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano indicated that Davis, who didn't travel with the team to Houston for Sunday's win over the Texans, would return to practice and suit up for the Week 10 game against the Steelers, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pagano was evasive when asked about why Davis was left back in Indianapolis for the Week 9 contest, but reiterated the team's stance that Davis' absence was a "coach's decision" and not related to the cornerback's lingering groin injury. Instead, it appears an off-field issue was at the root of Pagano's decision, with the Colts' inability to find a trade suitor for the veteran ahead of the Oct. 31 deadline perhaps serving as a contributing factor. Davis' performance in recent weeks has also left much to be desired, and since he's set to become a free agent in March, it's possible that he'll have to settle for a more minor role on defense going forward, especially after Pierre Desir drew positive reviews for his coverage of star Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins while starting in place of Davis on Sunday.

Head coach Chuck Pagano indicated Davis (groin) not traveling to Houston was a "coach's decision", Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pagano also said that Davis would be back for Week 10, after surprisingly being ruled out for Sunday's win over the Texans. There has been conflicting reports on the real reasoning behind the move with the 29-year-old's groin injury being cited as the cause, but it appears it will just be a one-week absence for the veteran cornerback, regardless.

Davis was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans due to a non-injury situation, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.

EDGE Analysis

No specifics are available on the situation as of yet, so it remains unclear if Davis is expected to miss any time beyond Sunday, but he did not travel with the team to Houston. Nate Hairston and Pierre Desir should see significantly increased workloads against the Texans with the absence of the veteran cornerback.
