06 Feb Panthers Thomas Davis expected to play with broken arm
Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who broke his arm in the NFC Championship Game win over Arizona, is listed as probable for Sunday’s game. So are defensive end Jared Allen (foot) and running back Mike Tolbert (knee).
Injured Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) also are probable.
Asked about his foot this week, Allen insisted: “Great. Everything is phenomenal.” As for being able to start in the Super Bowl, he said he can’t wait to get out on the field. “Hopefully, my smile speaks for itself,” he said. “There’s not a better feeling than being here right now and being able to play in this game.”
Stewart told reporters on Monday that he was going to play despite his sprained knee. His presence, along with Ward’s, will be critical in the Broncos’ attempt to stop the Panthers’ potent offense.
Thomas Davis fractured his right forearm 13 days ago. He will start in the Super Bowl on Sunday. Here is how: https://t.co/U5tRmNDMRG
