Thomas Davis Set to Play in Super Bowl

All-Pro linebacker Thomas Davis will be good to go as far playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. It’s very rare in this league that a player appears as a full participant on the injury report but doesn’t play in the game.

This is pretty much what we’ve being hearing from Davis all week and ever since he got injured.  Davis broke his right forearm in the NFC Championship victory over Arizona and had surgery to put a plate and 12 screws in his right arm the day after.

In a Carolina Panthers Pool Report by Jarret Bell released earlier Wednesday, he also thinks Davis will be playing in the Super Bowl:

Davis is due for another exam on Friday, but his practice load clearly indicated that the 11th-year veteran is on track to play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday

What this means is that the NFC champs will be injury free. Jarred Allen is a situational player who should be healthy enough to play on passing downs.
