Redskins signed FB Carey Davis, formerly of the Steelers.

Davis, 29, is a versatile fullback without great ability as a lead blocker. The Skins need healthy hands with starter Mike Sellers nursing a knee injury.

The Steelers opted not to tender FB Carey Davis, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Pittsburgh no longer uses a lead blocker much, so Davis wasn't worth the lowest tender of $1.01 million. He may be brought back for the minimum pay.

Steelers FB Carey Davis is expected to miss this week's game after suffering a hamstring injury on Monday night.

It was Davis' first action since Week 5, and Rashard Mendenhall didn't miss him after he left. Rookie David Johnson will likely handle fullback duties against the Bengals.

Steelers FB Carey Davis left Monday night's win in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Davis was active for the first time since Week 5. Rashard Mendenhall didn't miss Davis as he ripped off 155 rushing yards.

Steelers signed FB Carey Davis.

The veteran, who started in last year's Super Bowl, was one of the Steelers' final cuts leading up to the season in favor of rookie Frank Summers. Pittsburgh's running game got going in Week 3, but Summers has fallen out of favor and was inactive Sunday.

Steelers released FB Carey Davis and RB Isaac Redman.

Davis entered last season as a possibility for short-yardage duties, but he lost his job to converted TE Sean McHugh and never regained it. Redman was a preseason flash in the pan, mentioned as a goal-line candidate, but the Steelers needed someone with better special teams ability.

The Steelers tendered exclusive rights free agent FB Carey Davis and OT Jeremy Parquet.

They let go of LB Arnold Harrison, who's coming off a torn ACL, and backup TE Jon Dekker. Davis and Parquet will be on the roster bubble this summer.

Steelers FB Carey Davis (ankle) is expected to return this week to face the Giants.

Tight end Sean McHugh has filled in well while Davis has been out.
Wed, Oct 22, 2008 12:08:00 PM

Steelers FB Carey Davis (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Tight end Sean McHugh will continue to fill in at fullback.
Wed, Oct 15, 2008 12:16:00 PM

Steelers FB Carey Davis (ankle) is considered doubtful for Week 5.

Gary Russell is the best bet in Pittsburgh's backfield for goal-line carries against the Jags. The Steelers will use TE Sean McHugh at fullback.

Steelers FB Carey Davis (ankle) hasn't been able to practice this week.

Fantasy leaguers shouldn't be expecting anything out of Davis in Week 5.

Steelers FB Carey Davis had to be taken to the locker room after spraining his left ankle in the fourth quarter Monday. He didn't return. He ended up with 8 carries for 15 yards and one catch for a one yard loss.

Pittsburgh's RBs are dropping like flies. Davis replaced Rashard Mendenhall, who was injured earlier in the game. He was replaced by Mewelde Moore who was promptly stuffed on his goal line carries.

Steelers FB Carey Davis "appears to be the team's best short-yardage candidate," according to team beat writer Ed Bouchette.

Willie Parker and Rashard Mendenhall failed to establish themselves in the role during the preseason. Davis is built like a bowling ball and could be effective at the goal line, but is unlikely to see carries between the 20s.

Carey Davis and Verron Haynes will both compete to be the Steelers' third-down back.

Coach Mike Tomlin said that Najeh Davenport should get between 20-25 carries per game going forward, meaning either man's contribution would be minimal.
