Vikings adding Davis | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Vikings are expected to sign free-agent LB Todd Davis on Wednesday, according to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver. Davis got cut by the Broncos as they got down to their 53-man regular season roster. We don't expect Davis to threated the playing time of LB Eric Wilson, who's in for full-time duty with Anthony Barr (pectoral tear) out for the year. We'll see about Davis' role.

The Broncos on Friday released ILB Todd Davis. It's a surprising move, especially because he's reportedly recovered from the calf injury that cost Davis most of training camp. The move leaves Alexander (A.J.) Johnson as a clear starter and Josey Jewell as the presumed other starter. Johnson has been a strong value in our IDP rankings all offseason. Jewell can be a late option in deep leagues, but he played his way out of a starting job last year.

Broncos LB Todd Davis left Thursday's practice with a left calf injury. Davis hurt it bad enough to need help off the field, but HC Vic Fangio had no further info on the injury after the workout. Davis missed nearly all of last year's training camp with a partial calf tear but made it back for Week 3 and then played the rest of the games. We'll see about the severity of this injury.

Update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Davis is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. That still gives him a shot at being ready for the regular-season opener.

Broncos LB Todd Davis is active for today's game against the Packers. He missed the 1st 2 games with the calf injury that cost him nearly the whole summer. That makes Davis a risky IDP option for his 1st week back. We'll be quite curious to see his playing time, though, and whether Davis' return affects Josey Jewell's playing time.

Broncos LB Todd Davis is questionable for Sunday's game agains the Bears. He put in limited practices all week after missing Week 1 with the calf injury that kept him out all summer. We'll see about Davis' status Sunday afternoon, but IDP owners shouldn't plan on using him in most cases.

Broncos LB Todd Davis is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Raiders. Davis missed nearly all of training camp and the preseason with a calf injury that continued to keep him out of practice over the past week. His absence hurts a thin Denver LB depth chart but boosts the IDP upside of fellow ILB starter Josey Jewell. Elsewhere on the defense, slot CB Bryce Callahan is questionable with a foot injury that limited his practice participation all week. That's good news for Raiders rookie slot WR Hunter Renfrow, who sports some deep PPR upside.
