He returned for the next possession and played the remainder of the game in pain, he said."I kind of landed on it wrong," Davis said. "It went numb for a while. It was actually killing me the whole rest of the game. I managed to stay in there and keep it going."Davis said he was not scheduled for an X-ray or an MRI examination because team doctors told him the pain would go away.
