The outside of Davis' knee, where the hamstring attaches to the joint, is inflamed after being banged up in Sunday night's 26-21 win over Indianapolis. Davis favored his left leg Monday at Redskin Park and admitted feeling some pain. But the injury -- to the same knee he sprained Oct. 6 at Tennessee -- ultimately doesn't appear bad enough to keep him out this weekend.
"Our trainer said Stephen sort of had a sprained knee,"
coach Steve Spurrier said. "He probably should be OK to
play this week."
If Davis plays, he will face the NFL's worst-ranked run
defense, a unit that last week allowed Dallas' Emmitt
Smith 109 yards en route to breaking Walter Payton's
career rushing record.
Against Indianapolis, Davis carried 16 times for 80
yards in just a half of action. As a team, Washington
averaged 4.5 yards per carry against the Colts.
"Are [the Seahawks] worse [than the Colts]?" Spurrier
said. "Well, you never know how it will play out. At
times they looked pretty good against Dallas, and at
times they've given up some rush yards. So our game
plan will be the same as always: Try to balance the
runs and the passes, go from there."
