Football players are tough, but former UGA safety Thomas Davis may be among the toughest of them all.
In the Carolina Panthers’ win over the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday, Davis, who now plays linebacker in the NFL, apparently had his finger popped out of his socket during a play, but he set it back into place and then tackled Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch.
The play takes place just before the 6-minute mark in the footage below on NBC Sports Network’s recap show “Turning Point.”
Davis is no stranger to playing through pain, he is the only player to ever successfully recover from three ACL injuries in the same knee, but his comments about the play above to the Black and Blue Review’s Bill Voth are the stuff of legend.
People continually lament the NFL becoming less violent, meanwhile Davis continues to prove this is a sport for only the toughest of men.
