Thomas Davis' wife just put up a post on Instagram that seems to indicate that the Panthers linebacker is having surgery on his broken arm this morning:
See original story below.
The Panthers are headed to San Francisco, Calif. to play the Broncos in Super Bowl 50 in two weeks, which means longtime Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis will finally get a taste of what it feels like to play for an NFL title after suffering through some tough years with the team. Or will he?
During the Panthers’ NFC Championship Game win against the Cardinals last night, Davis broke his right forearm while making a tackle in the first half and had to leave the game. But after it was over, he told reporters that, broken arm or not, he’s going to play in the Super Bowl.
“I ain’t missing the Super Bowl,” he said. “You better believe that…The early prognosis is it’s broken. We’ll get it figured out, and I’ll be ready in two weeks.”
"Ready"? Er, doubtful. But as we mentioned, Davis has played on some bad Panthers teams in the past, so something tells us that there's nothing that will stop him from taking the field on February 7.
