Davis Leaves Game with Injury

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. --- North Carolina verbal commit Ray Ray Davis limped off the field Friday night with 2:12 remaining in the second half of Sun Valley's conference bout with A.L. Brown. He remained on the sideline for the rest of the game with ice wrapped around his left knee.

"I tweaked it a little bit in the first quarter," Davis said. "I just decided to play on it.

"On the play [before I left the game]… I planted my left leg and then the dude pushed me. I put all my pressure on my left leg and the bone came out and went back in."

Davis' knee will be X-ray'ed Saturday morning. The 5-foot-11, 188-pound receiver expects to know his status by the end of the weekend.

"[The trainers] haven't really said anything," Davis said. "I should know more soon."

Davis is optimistic about his situation and will do what he can to play the remainder of his senior season.

"If they say can I play, I'm going to play on it," Davis said. "I'm not going to favor it."

Without Davis, Sun Valley lost its first game of the season, 34-31, to Brown.

"I feel like, I could have helped my team out if I didn't hurt my knee," Davis said. "I'm kind of mad about that. I'm just ready to do the X-ray thing tomorrow."

Sun Valley headed into halftime with a 21-19 deficit.

Before he left the game, Davis had caught three passes for 27 yards and two carries for 13 yards.

Davis caught the second half of UNC's nationally televised 44-12 defeat of Rutgers Thursday.

"It was good," Davis said. "The defense showed up, the offense showed up."

Following the instructions of UNC coaches, Davis will take his official visit to UNC this coming weekend.

"I guess they wanted me to be there to see the Virginia Tech game," Davis said.

As expected, UNC is the only school Davis will visit in any capacity.

Davis says he talks to Charlie Williams, UNC's receivers coach, weekly.
