“I feel like I’m off the reins,” Davis said after practice Tuesday. “I’m just excited to be a part of Green Bay and do I can here. Hopefully my role is bigger.”
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers were trying to get him to work on Tuesday.
“It’s obviously a big challenge when you’re on a short week, but he’s definitely a talented young player,” McCarthy said. “So just looking forward to getting him into the mix and get going.”

Packers are in urgent need of help in the running back depth. The starting running back Eddie Lacy jerseys has been suffering from ankle injury, McCarthy said Rassey “very sore” and will not participate in Tuesday’s training. James Starks will be absent after a knee surgery on Monday.
Lacy was the only healthy tailback in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. With the starter battling the ankle trouble, receiver Ty Montgomery served as a backup out of the backfield much of the second half.
Davis has been available via trade as far back as March. It was reported that Davis asked the Chiefs to trade him – but he later denied. with Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West proving to be more than capable of substitutes and Jamaal Charles returning from his ACL tear, Davis has been that is not needed. Then, the outstanding rookie Tyreek Hill serves as a returner instead of Davis. Davis’ roster spot seemed in jeopardy the past few weeks.
In the upcoming Thursday night, Packers fans do not expect Davis, who has averaged just 3.3 yards per carry for his career, has a very good performance. Still, Davis is better than not having a running back at all and can help on special teams.
