Davis retired at halftime during Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis reportedly pulled himself out of Sunday's game after halftime, and the veteran cornerback's retirement seems to have come as a surprise to Buffalo. "He communicated to us that he was done," coach Sean McDermott said. The reason for Davis' abrupt retirement remains undisclosed, but expect an update about the 30-year-old veteran in the coming days.

Davis is inactive for Sunday's season opener in Baltimore, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis still isn't fully up to speed following November surgery to repair a core-muscle injury, so while his debut with the Bills isn't too far off, Phillip Gaines will take the starting cornerback role for the opener, opposite Tre-Davious White.

Davis, acquired by the Bills in free agency this offseason, has yet to cement a starting role and is being pushed by Phillip Gaines, Mitchell Courtney of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had been the presumed starter since his signing, but he hasn't been as natural a fit to the team's defense as perhaps the team originally expected, and he looked silly at times during Sunday's preseason loss to the Bengals. The veteran still has a lot to offer and the hunch remains he'll win the starting job across from Tre'Davious White, but he has clearly has more to prove to the coaching staff with only one more preseason game remaining.

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.
