Falcons WR Drew Davis out six weeks after foot surgery

Falcons reserve wide receiver Drew Davis had surgery to repair an unspecified foot injury and will miss the next six weeks, according to the team.

The Falcons placed Davis on the physically unable to perform list for training camp. The Falcons open practice on July 25, meaning Davis would miss about three weeks of camp under the timetable announced by the team.

“Drew felt some discomfort in his foot at the end of minicamp,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said in a statement released by the team. “We decided to send him to the doctors for some evaluations and it was determined he had suffered an injury that would require a procedure. He recently had the procedure done and we expect him to miss around six weeks.”

Davis has been a top special-teams player for the Falcons since signing as a college free agent in July 2011. He started three games for the Falcons in 2013 after injuries to Julio Jones and Roddy White thinned out the position and had 12 receptions for 216 yards and two touchdowns.
