The Rams have received some good injury news, as safety Cody Davis has been cleared to return to practice on Thursday.
Davis was placed on injured reserve in early November after suffering a quad injury during the Week 6 victory over the Jaguars. Upon Davis going on injured reserve on Nov. 3, head coach Sean McVay said, "Certainly Cody is a very important part of our team and it's unfortunate, but he had that quad that just wasn't getting any better. So, want to be smart, give him a full chance to recover and then we'll look at bringing him back with the designated to return possibilities the way that that operates."
Davis had been playing well in the Rams' new defensive scheme for 2017 under coordinator Wade Phillips. In his fifth year out of Texas Tech, Davis had recorded an interception, a pair of pass breakups, and 22 total tackles prior to going on injured reserve.
While he has returned to practice, Davis is not eligible to return to the active roster until Week 17. That will mark eight weeks since he was placed on injured reserve — the requried amount of time a player designated to return must be on the list.
