Former Browns RB James Davis Decides to Leave Redskins Camp

Where in the world is running back James Davis, who is a member of the Washington Redskins?

"I don’t know," Shanahan said following Tuesday morning’s practice. "If you see him, let me know because I was wondering where he was at, too. I don’t know where he was at. Missing in action."

"I think he’s retired from football. That’s my guess." Shanahan said he believed Davis was in Atlanta and was prepared to walk away from football. He said the team has not released the third-year back.

If you don't remember, Davis was a sixth-round draft pick for the Browns during the 2009 draft. He suffered an early season-ending injury that year, and in 2010, he was released. At the time, Davis seemed to indicate on his Twitter account that he had asked to be released by the Browns, probably due to his lack of playing time in Cleveland. That might be the case in Washington too since he did not see a single carry in the Redskins' first preseason game against Pittsburgh.

Davis abruptly left a meeting Sunday night at Redskins Park, according to a report by ESPN 980, because he was unhappy with his playing time. Davis took to Twitter on Tuesday morning and said, "Please do not believe everything you here (sic) people. The story will be released soon. The real truth of the story."

We don't know Davis' side of the story yet, but the rumors make it sound like Davis doesn't want to continue competing in the league if he doesn't feel he's going to end up receiving any playing time.
