Athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion doesn't expect Panthers WLB Thomas Davis (arm) to be limited in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Broncos.
"The biggest challenge for him right now is, what's it going to feel like to take a blow on it," said Vermillion. "The nice thing is, wrist motion is going to be there, elbow motion is going to be there, and his grip is there." Davis has made a miraculous recovery from a broken arm and should play his usual snaps on Sunday. He shouldn't need any more surgery after having a six-inch plate installed during the bye week.

Davis underwent surgery early Monday morning to give himself as much time as possible to heal. Davis recorded 105 tackles, four forced fumbles and four interceptions in the regular season.

Jan 25 - 9:38 AM

Panthers WLB Thomas Davis told reporters after Sunday's NFC title game win that his right arm is broken.

Davis vowed to still play in Super Bowl 50, but he's going to need medical clearance from the Panthers' doctors first. Davis was an exceptional playmaker in 2015, amassing 105 tackles, 5.5 sacks, four interceptions, and four forced fumbles. His potential Super Bowl absence would catapult rookie Shaq Thompson into a full-time role alongside MLB Luke Kuechly against the Broncos.

Davis was spotted on the sideline having his wrist and forearm wrapped before heading back into the locker room. Rookie Shaq Thompson will take over as the Panthers' nickel 'backer alongside MLB Luke Kuechly. Along with SS Roman Harper (eye), Davis was ruled out for the game near the end of the first half.

Mon, Sep 28, 2015 01:11:00 PM

Panthers signed SLB Thomas Davis to a two-year extension through 2017.

Davis will earn $18 million over the next three seasons. The deal should allow the 32-year-old to retire with Carolina. Davis was PFF's fifth-highest rated 4-3 outside linebacker last season. The Panthers have one of the strongest linebacker groups in the league with Luke Kuechly clogging the middle and first-round pick Shaq Thompson joining the crew at weak-side 'backer.
Mon, Jun 15, 2015 02:44:00 PM

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes SLB Thomas Davis could sign a multi-year extension prior to training camp.

Even if no deal gets done by camp, Newton does not "foresee any issues getting it done" and believes the deal will be for 2-3 years. Despite turning 32 in March, Davis played at a high level last season and has shown no signs of wearing down. With Luke Kuechly manning the middle and rookie Shaq Thompson on the weak side, Carolina will field one of the most formidable linebacker corps in the league, and quite probably the fastest.
