Carolina Panthers All-Pro linebacker Thomas Davis suffered a broken arm in the NFC Championship victory over the Arizona Cardinals less than a week ago. But, with the Super Bowl in just nine days, Davis is set to play on February 7 in Santa Clara anyways.
The 32-year old linebacker had surgery, and apparently has a metal plate and 11-12 screws in his arm, but he expects to be ready to go. If that’s not ballsy/gutsy, then I truly don’t know what is.
Remember when Jack Youngblood played throughout the 1979 postseason, including the Super Bowl, with a broken leg? Well if Carolina wins this game and Davis is a contributor then this may go down in history as one of the gutsiest games in NFL postseason/Super Bowl history.
