Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis said that he didnâ€™t miss any meetings last week, and said that he didnâ€™t view his limited activity in Monday nightâ€™s game against the San Francisco 49ers as a disciplinary move.
Davis on Monday dressed for a game for the first time in six weeks and played 10 snaps. He wasnâ€™t targeted on any passes, and the bulk of his action came on the final Redskins possession of the game.
NBC Washington reported the same night that Davis had missed meetings in the week leading up to the game. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan declined to confirm or deny the report, but said that if there had been an issue, he would have dealt with it privately.
Davis denied the report, saying, â€śâ€śNo. Thatâ€™s not true. And thatâ€™s not the reason why,â€ť he didnâ€™t play much. â€śI never blew off any meetings.â€ť
Davis admitted that he had been a couple minutes late for a meeting last week, but he said he entered the game expecting to only play a handful of snaps despite that rookie Jordan Reed missed the game with a concussion.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t really like getting plays, it was really just to help out and stuff,â€ť Davis said. â€śIt sucks, but eventually, you can only do what you can control. When you get an opportunity like last week, you do your best â€¦ Try to help the team win.â€ť
