After he suffered a broken forearm in the NFC Championship Game, team trainers didn't think Carolina Panthers linebackerThomas Davis would be able to play in Super Bowl 50, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. But the defensive playmaker defied the odds and suited up for his team Sunday.
Although the Panthers came up short, losing 24-10 to the Denver Broncos, Davis recorded seven tackles while playing with a cast on his right arm. After the game, Davis shared this message on Instagram along with an image of his surgically repaired forearm:
This post is not about me, or how tough I am. It's not to shine any light on me or my injuries. Our team doctors and trainers did an amazing job giving me an opportunity to get back on the field. This post is strictly to show how much love I have for my brothers and #PantherNation. Thank you all for your support and we will #KeepPounding.-TD
