James Davis, A.W.O.L.

In perhaps the strangest scenario of training camp this year, Redskins running back James Davis has disappeared from camp.

Most recently listed as a fifth-string running back on the unofficial depth chart, James Davis did not report to training camp yesterday.  Head coach Mike Shanahan said that he didn’t know his whereabouts yesterday, and elaborated today:

“He left the squad,” he said.  “I heard he’s somewhere in Atlanta.  It used to be you’d have 130-to-140 guys in camp.  One time we had 145.  Guys would leave in the middle of the night.  That used to be the norm.  You’d wake up and two guys were gone.  Where did they go?”

Putting it in that context, Shanahan didn’t seem too concerned with the disappearing act.

“The same thing with this situation,” he continued.  “We didn’t know where he went.  We came in and his roomates said his clothes were gone.  All those rumors and speculations you hear aren’t always the truth, but he was in the middle of the night.”

“I don’t expect him back,” he finished.

We may never know the story behind this odd ending, but his absence does make decisions easier at a crowded running back position.

    That’s a shame. Waste if talent. He was phenomenal in college. Guess it didn’t translate to the NFL very well…
