Panthers LB Thomas Davis suffers broken arm
Monday January 25th, 2016

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis told reporters he broke his arm during the NFC Championship Game but still hopes to play in the Super Bowl.

Davis broke his right forearm attempting to tackle Darren Fells early in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. The Panthers advanced to the Super Bowl with a 49–15 win over Arizona.

Davis—despite his injury—guaranteed to reporters he would play in two weeks.

Davis is no stranger to miraculous recoveries. In 2011, the linebacker tore his ACL for the third time in three years. By returning the next season, Davis became the first NFL player to return to action from three ACL tears.

The linebacker’s wife posted an Instagram on Monday morning indicating Davis would be undergoing surgery on his arm.
