Carlton Davis Is Injured

October 25th, 2020

Bucco Bruce Arians made an interesting comment about cornerback Carlton Davis last week and it has fresh meaning tonight.

Arians referenced how Davis is doing a much better job this season playing through pain.

Before the Packers clobbering, Davis missed practice time with an abdominal injury. Last week, leading up to today’s chain-whipping of the Raiders, Davis was on the Bucs’ official injury report with a knee injury.

And late in the third quarter in Las Vegas, Davis left the game with a chest injury.

No, Joe’s not calling Davis injury-prone, and this was Davis’ second consecutive game without a penalty. Hooray!! But Davis now has another injury to fight through to get back on the field.

Arians is right. Great players find every way they can to get on the field, which includes pushing uncomfortably through injuries. Just ask Derrick Brooks or Rondé Barber; they’ll tell you all about it.

Joe’s not calling Davis a great player, but Arians continues to say he’s one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. And with that label comes an expectation to be on the field at all costs.

While Joe would love to see the Bucs rest two of their many wounded warriors next week against the Giants, it’s just not how the NFL operates, at least not until you clinch a division crown.

    yeah the giants are next, wtf did we get AB for when we should of been on the hunt for cornerback help.

  3. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    So long as it isn’t a horrific freak injury I assume we will at least get him back against the saints.

    Granted for as much as people holler about pass rushing depth I am much more concerned about depth at CB.

    SMB better improve soon.

    It sucked not being able to see Chucky’s full expressions, that smirk while his old team beat the hell out of his new/old team.

    What a tool.

    Chuck…they beat that ass man….they beat it good.

    Go Bucs!!!


  6. Coburn Says:

    Well luckily not his wheels. Can still run. Sure scared me but happy he came back in.

    Btw… Anyone else absolutely love that shot White put on Carr? Everytime he took off I’m like someone see if you can get a lick in on him.. well finally white did lol… After those sacks and that one hell def be in Carr’s head.

    Was disappointed all those holds and only one called for our dline. Saw one of our guys eeven reaching out and being held… And some being pushed down from behind

  7. JimmyJack Says:

    Joe you dont have to call Davis a great player but I will. Ill go as far to say hes our MVP.

    Fair enough if you wanna see more before you call him great. Confident he will proove it to you. At this point it would be a travesty if hes not named a ProBowler. Possibly a AllPro.

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Resting him vs Giants sounds like a good idea…..but he came back on the field after his chest injury & I saw him in the locker room video of BA’s victory speech…..he was very jovial…….

    And……don’t look past NY……..they are a NFL team and anything can happen…..although, I think only the Bucs can beat the Bucs.

  9. ©MadMax Says:

    Saw it when it happened and could tell….it sucks…he’s our lockdown! Get better Mr Davis….yall better sit him a while ok?

  10. Steven007 Says:

    Huge mistake looking past the Giants who historically have given us fits no matter what kind of shape their team was in. Obvious potential trap game. with the leadership on this team I don’t think it will be that but this is kind of the definition of one. They need to focus and finish like they’ve been doing.

  11. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Gotta agree with you 1987, would have been great to see Chucky’s pain!

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    AwShbucs……I like that term you used. He erased Ruggs. Not a bad nickname for Carlton “The Eraser” Davis

  13. Brandon Says:

    Y’all need to stop with the top 10 CB stuff and start with the Bucs have best trio of CBs in the NFL. Bucs and it isn’t even close.

    BTW, Devin White has a legit shot at NFC Defensive player of the week with his 10+ tackles and three sacks.

  14. AwShbucs Says:

    It sure beats Joe’s disrespectful nickname of Carlton “flags” Davis…

  15. Youngbucs Says:

    Brady’s accuracy is ridiculous not to mention the touch!!!!!!!!

  16. Dano407 Says:

    He has improved SO MUCH. I thought Ariana was full of it when he said he Davis is a top 10 corner. Man is he right!!

    Kicking a FG on 2nd down, leaving a ton of time on the clock? WOW, that is some idiot playcalling by the Cards.

  19. Coburn Says:

    Crazy game rod. I had switched to play a game when I saw Seattle go up by another score with a few mins thinking they had it. Saw.jow close it was on phone so turned it back on to see them go down field and tie it up

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Coburn – Seahawks dominated most of the game, then the Cards came back and tied it up, then they made the huge stop in OT, the offense moves right down the field, then they decide to kick a FG on 2nd down with 3 mins left… amazingly stupid on the the Cardinals behalf.

  21. Coburn Says:

    A hold??? Wow

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, this is an entertaining game.

  23. Coburn Says:

    Yeah was surprised when I turned it back on and they had ball back only down 3. Man that d is playing clutch

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    They’ve rattled Wilson by blitzing, just something to keep in mind for January.

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    Love it, good to see Seattle lose. Now the Bucs are 1 game out of 1st in the NFC.

  26. Defense Rules Says:

    @Brandon … “BTW, Devin White has a legit shot at NFC Defensive player of the week with his 10+ tackles and three sacks.”

    You gotta recognize Brandon that in Joe’s eyes, White will always be a MLB picked way too high in the draft. Someplace along the line though Joe will grudgingly admit that Devin had a ‘fairly good game’ and is getting better, although Joe saw him miss 1 tackle.

    And oh ya, then he’ll crow about how good the #2 LB Devin Bush is doing up in Pittsburgh (26 tackles, 1 sack, 0 TFL, 2 QB Hits, 3 PD in 5 games) versus our guy Devin White. Not even a contest.

    ’87, you read my mind! What a shame Chucky finally wore a full face mask. Man, I so badly wanted to see that infamous Chucky scowl! That was the most disappointing part of the game! LMAO
