Redskins TE Davis (Achilles) cleared to play
Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis, who is recovering from a torn Achilles suffered last season, was cleared to play by Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday.
Anderson, a well-known foot specialist based in North Carolina, said Davis is healing very well and will be 100 percent for organized team activities. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 12.
Davis was the Redskins' leading receiver with 24 catches for 325 yards before suffering his injury against the Giants in October.
In 2011, he was having a career year with 59 catches for 796 yards before being suspended for the final four games after failing multiple drug tests.
The 27-year-old tight end has 155 catches, 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns in 62 career games.
