Fred Davis gets medical clearance


During the 2012 regular season, Redskins tight end Fred Davis suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

Today, he has received medical clearance to resume running and other related rehab activities.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Davis received clearance from Dr. Robert Anderson, who concluded that Davis is healing very well. Davis is expected to be ready for offseason workouts.

With Davis, who received the franchise tag in 2012, due to become a free agent on March 12, that’s good news. Still, it won’t stop teams from poking and prodding and coming to their own conclusions about the player’s prognosis.

And, as Dolphins fans know too well (cough . . . Drew Brees . . . cough), sometimes the doctors advise against signing a player who is on his way to being perfectly fine.
