RICHMOND — Tight end Fred Davis said he expects to have a significant but perhaps somewhat limited workload on the practice field during the Washington Redskins’ training camp as he returns from the ruptured Achilles’ tendon that cut short his 2012 season.
“Since we have five tight ends, I think a lot of people are going to get a lot of reps,” Davis said. “But at the same time, I think I’m going to get a lot of the first-team reps. I think the object will be for me to definitely ease myself back in but still play hard.”
Davis was re-signed by the Redskins in free agency. He did not participate in offseason practices, instead doing his rehabilitation work on the side.
“Physically I feel fine,” Davis said Thursday. “I feel 100 percent. But I think mentally is more the thing that you’ve got to deal with every day. I haven’t felt sore yet. I’ve been running routes for the last couple months now. I feel good but it’s different when you’ve got defense out there and you’re trying to make somebody miss and do everything.”
