Kelly Davis was on Fox News Edge on WCCB in Charlotte to promote Thomas Davis’ Defending Dreams Foundation charity Halloween party on Friday.

Thomas was checked by the medical staff on week 3 but later returned to the game. He has appeared in every single game this year. Here is the snap count for each game since then :

  • 37 of 70 snaps in week 4
  • 41 of 61 snaps in week 5
  • 55 of 62 snaps in Week 6
  • 38 of 38 snaps in week 7

The Panthers released a statement saying “Thomas was listed on the report with a rib injury in Week 4 and 5, Kelly’s comments concerning his injury, while heartfelt, were overstated.”
