Less than 24 hours after suffering a broken forearm, Thomas Davis was having surgery in hopes to be ready for the Super Bowl in less than two weeks. The wife of the Carolina Panthers' linebacker posted on Instagram Monday morning a picture of Davis prior to his surgery.
Davis made it clear after the game yesterday that he would be ready to go for the Super Bowl and during his press conference on Monday Ron Rivera said that "this is an injury that he most certainly could play with."
The longtime Panther is one of the most important players on this team because of his play on the field and his leadership in the locker room. This season was one of the best of his with career high in sacks (5.5), interceptions (4) and his third highest tackle total (105). He earned his first Pro Bowl selection but with the Panthers in the Super Bowl he won't be participating in that game.
