Broncos’ Davis Plans To Play Sunday

September 16, 1999

DENVER (AP) _ Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis, his right wrist heavily taped, insisted the injury won’t keep him out of Sunday’s game at Kansas City.

Davis was injured during the Broncos’ 38-21 loss to Miami on Monday night, but he wasn’t listed on the team’s postgame injury report.

``I don’t know when it happened,″ he said. ``I just know that when I left the stadium, it was stiff. When I woke up Tuesday morning, it was real stiff.″

X-rays proved negative, and Davis was confident that with treatment the rest of the week he won’t be encumbered on Sunday.

``It feels pretty good,″ he said Wednesday. ``The motion was good this morning when I woke up. I treated it all night, so I don’t expect to have any problems with it.″

Davis, who led the NFL with 2,008 yards rushing last season but was limited to 61 yards on 19 carries by the Dolphins, was listed as probable on the team’s injury report released Wednesday.

Davis suffered minor shoulder and ankle injuries during the preseason, but he said he isn’t concerned about the early onset of injuries.

``This is not anything different from what I experienced last year,″ he said. ``I just have a bum wrist right now, but it’s nothing major. I’m sure that when Sunday comes around, it shouldn’t be a problem. Other than that, I feel fine.″

At most, Davis said, he might wear a small wrap on the wrist on Sunday.

The Broncos listed 10 other players as probable on their injury list, including quarterback Brian Griese with thigh and shoulder injuries.

``I’m pretty sore, but in the next couple of days I’ll get my body back,″ the 24-year-old quarterback said. ``I’m still kind of young, so I think I can recover fast. I took a lot of hits, but in a game like that against a defense as good as theirs was, I expected that.″
