heres what the article said
After undergoing microfracture surgery back in November, Panthers' running back Stephen Davis is in the midst of rehabilitating his right knee. "I had to go through six-to-eight weeks on crutches without bearing any pressure on it," Davis recently told the Panthers' official website. "I got past that. I'm in my 12th week no, so I can start doing things like PreCor, more weights, and more balance stuff. It's feeling great. Everything that I'm doing is reacting very well. So far I haven't had any kind of setbacks and everything is looking good for me." The injury forced Davis to miss all but two games in 2004.
Panthers' officials are said to be very skeptical regarding Davis' chances of making a full recovery. Meanwhile, they are not convinced that DeShaun Foster can stay healthy, and they don't see Nick Goings as an every-down back. In other words, don't be surprised if the Panthers pursue one of the free agent running backs.
If I were the Panthers, Id look for a FA RB. There are so many quality guys out there, that they shoudl be able to get someone for cheap. I could see A-Train, Rhodes, or Jordan going there at a pretty cheap price (although Jordan thinks hes worth the world)
