Fred Davis has no soreness in Achilles' tendon

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins TE Fred Davis said he feels great and that there is no inkling of soreness in his surgically-repaired Achilles’ tendon. Davis showed off his speed, getting behind safeties Reed Doughty and DeJon Gomes on separate plays to make impressive catches.

Fantasy Impact: 

Over the last 19 games, Davis has averaged 6.9 fantasy points, which would have been the 11th-highest average in 2012. The problem is that he has only played 19 games in two seasons. (He missed four games in 2011 due to suspension after failing multiple drug tests.) His Achilles is obviously a concern, but it's a good thing that his situation isn't changing for the worse. If both he and Robert Griffin III are healthy, we can expect low-end TE1 numbers along the lines of Jermichael Finley.
