Falcons WR Drew Davis (foot, PUP) began practicing Wednesday.
Davis has been sidelined since Fourth of July weekend after undergoing foot surgery. The Falcons never revealed the extent of his injury, but it's fair to wonder if it was of the Lisfranc variety. Atlanta now has 21 days to activate Davis. The 25-year-old caught 12 balls for 216 yards and two scores in 2013. Nov 5 - 2:06 PM

Falcons placed WR Drew Davis (foot surgery) on the active/PUP list.

"Drew felt some discomfort in his foot at the end of minicamp," revealed coach Mike Smith. "We decided to send him to the doctors for some evaluations and it was determined he had suffered an injury that would require a procedure." The Falcons expect Davis to miss around six weeks.
Jul 5 - 11:22 AM

Drew Davis caught three passes for 70 yards in Week 16 against the 49ers.

Davis was elevated to the No. 3 receiver this week with Darius Johnson (ankle) out and ended up reeling in all three of his targets. His biggest play was a 59-yard catch-and-run where he busted out a spin move to set up an eventual Steven Jackson two-yard touchdown. Davis will likely handle No. 3 duties again in the regular season finale against the Panthers next Sunday.

Falcons WR Drew Davis caught a 36-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's Week 14 loss to Green Bay.

Davis' lone reception went to the house on a crossing route following a tight-window throw from Matt Ryan. Davis is serving as Atlanta's No. 4 receiver, behind Roddy White, Harry Douglas, and Darius Johnson.

Drew Davis did not catch a pass in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Seahawks.

With Roddy White back, Davis barely played. He's safe to drop across the board.

Drew Davis caught one pass for two yards in Atlanta's Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

With Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) appearing near a return, the jig is likely up for Atlanta's fill-in No. 2 receiver. Davis drew only two targets, the second of which resulted in a Matt Ryan pick six. Davis can be safely dropped in re-draft formats.

Drew Davis played on 71-of-83 snaps in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

Over the last two weeks, Davis has played 87.0 percent of the snaps. It led to a breakout Week 8 performance that included five catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. The problem, of course, is that Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) could be back as soon as this week. At that point, Davis won't be getting enough playing time to be worth a start.

Drew Davis caught five passes for 77 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Arizona.

For the second straight week, Davis played virtually every snap opposite Harry Douglas. This time, he came up with production. The second-year undrafted player out of Oregon boasts strong hands and some separation skills as he plays the Roddy White role in the Falcons offense. There's some deep-league appeal here as the Falcons are going to have to throw a ton going forward. Their run game is completely inept.

Drew Davis played on 43-of-48 snaps in Sunday's win over the Bucs.

Davis is far ahead of Brian Robiskie and Kevin Cone, who combined to play three snaps. Davis had a meager one catch for 24 yards, but he saw a lot of Darrelle Revis and the Falcons only attempted 26 passes. If Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) continues to miss time, there will be better days ahead for Davis.

Drew Davis had one catch for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bucs.

It was his only target of the game. Davis started opposite Harry Douglas in two-wide sets, but was shut down by Darrelle Revis outside of an impressive one-handed catch in the third quarter. With Julio Jones out for the season and Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) not a lock to return next week, Davis worth monitoring in deeper re-draft leagues.

Falcons WR Drew Davis is expected to start in Week 7 against the Bucs.

Davis will play opposite Harry Douglas in two-wide sets and is best suited to take over the Julio Jones role in Atlanta's offense. He had been limited to special teams the first five games, but will be more involved in the offense this week with the Falcons playing without both Jones and Roddy White (hamstring, ankle).

Drew Davis is expected to enter camp as the Falcons' No. 4 receiver.

An undrafted free agent out of Oregon last year, Davis has done well to carve out a role on the Falcons' talented roster. His ability to contribute on special teams as well as back up Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas makes him a strong bet to stick on the final 53 again.

Falcons WR Drew Davis caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 8 win over Philadelphia.

He secured both balls on Atlanta's opening possession, filling in for injured Harry Douglas at slot receiver. "He's a guy who has kept at it and at it," Matt Ryan said of Davis, a UDFA out of Oregon. "He has been really focused on getting better, even when there wasn't an immediate payoff. That's hard in this business, but he was ready and we had a great design for him on that first drive."

Falcons WR Drew Davis has "caught the eye" of the coaching staff.

Davis is battling for the Falcons' No. 5 receiver job. He caught just one pass in Atlanta's preseason opener, but impressed coach Mike Smith with his special teams play. "(When) we start talking about the (fifth receiver), special teams is going to probably carry more weight than receiving skills," Smith admitted. The practice squad is a more likely destination for the Oregon product.
