Commanders place LB Jamin Davis on season-ending IR

Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera announced Monday that linebacker Jamin Davis would need season-ending shoulder surgery and miss the final four games of the 2023 season.

Rivera revealed that Davis injured his shoulder in the Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He briefly left the game but quickly returned. Davis played 55 of 61 snaps in the game.

On Wednesday, the Commanders returned to practice and officially placed Davis on injured reserve. He finishes his third season with 89 tackles, including eight for loss, three sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 13 games.

Davis was 16 tackles away from establishing a new career high and statistically improved in other categories from 2022 to 2023.

In a corresponding move, Washington signed undrafted rookie defensive end Joshua Pryor from the practice squad.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Pryor was signed after the 2023 NFL draft after a standout college career at Bowie State. The rookie has appeared in three games for the Commanders this season, playing on special teams. He has recorded one tackle in limited duty.
