Fred Davis To Sit Out Preseason Finale

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a story from the Washington Posts' Mike Jones confirmed Tuesday.

Davis, who's seen limited action in the preseason because the team is trying to give converted tight end Niles Paul time to learn the position, says despite the lack of opportunities he's ready to go for the season opener, Sept. 9, against the New Orleans Saints.

On Saturday, Davis caught his longest ball of the preseason -- a 11-yard catch and run -- in the Skins' third preseason game, a 30-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

‘’It felt good to get the ball, have people trying to tackle you for real. It makes a difference,’’ Davis said. ‘’Being involved in a whole drive, I got to work on my route running, some blocking. Made some plays. I feel good.’’
