Fred Davis Has Sprained Left Ankle
ASHBURN – Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said tight end Fred Davis has a grade one sprain of his left ankle and is uncertain to play Sunday against San Francisco.
Davis has caught 36 passes for 517 yards, both team highs, and the yardage ranked him 13th in the NFL and second amongst all tight ends entering the Monday night game between San Diego and Kansas City.
He was fitted for a walking boot after Sunday’s 23-0 loss to Buffalo in Toronto and made a brief appearance in the locker room Monday morning when it was open to reporters. He caught eight passes for 94 yards against the Bills.
The Redskins already have lost tight end Chris Cooley for the season because of inflammation in his left knee. Logan Paulsen and Dominique Byrd, signed last week to replace Cooley, are also on the roster.
Shanahan also confirmed linebacker Rocky McIntosh has a right ankle injury, but that it’s likely nothing serious and he should be able to practice this week.
