Coach Jeff Fisher announced Wednesday that Davis will be behind center for the rest of the season. Previously, Fisher insisted that Shaun Hill would return as starter as soon as he was completely healed from the quad injury.
“I think that’s why you do take the cliche approach of work hard every day and take every rep like it’s your last, because you never know what’s going to happen in this game with injuries and different opportunities and things like that,” Davis said. “Yeah, it’s a bit of a wild ride, but at the end of the day, this team is looking for me to lead them and I’m up for that challenge and excited about it.”
The 25-year-old Davis has thrown for 754 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions, while completing 72 percent of his passes since taking over for Hill midway through the first game of the season.
