Thomas Davis Breaks Arm, Expects To Play In Super Bowl 50

Even though the Panthers didn’t have star linebacker Thomas Davis for most of the NFC championship gamThomas Davis (vertical)e on Sunday, that didn’t stop them from shellacking the Cardinals, 49-15, to advance to Super Bowl 50.

Davis – who left in the second quarter and didn’t return – revealed afterward that he broke his right arm, USA Today’s Tom Peliserro reports (Twitter link). The question now is whether Davis will be healthy enough to face the AFC champion Broncos on Feb. 7. He thinks so.

“There is no way I’m missing the Super Bowl,” the 32-year-old told ESPN’s Josina Anderson (Twitter link).

Davis, long one of Carolina’s heart-and-soul players, has been among its driving forces this season. The 11th-year man is amid his first All-Pro campaign, having registered 105 tackles and 5.5 sacks to go along with impressive ball-hawking prowess (four forced fumbles, four interceptions). In parts of the Panthers’ two playoff wins this year, Davis has combined for 11 tackles.
