Davis caught three of four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 31-21 loss to Dallas.
With Jordan Reed (concussion) missing another game, Davis handled a 74 percent snap share despite temporarily leaving the contest with an eye injury. The 35-year-old failed to match his performance from the previous week, which was largely a product of terrible tackling by the Eagles on a 48-yard, catch-and-run touchdown. Davis will slide back to a lesser role in the passing game if Reed is ready for Week 3 against Chicago on Monday Night Football.
Davis (eye) has been cleared to return to Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
After being deemed questionable to come back, Davis was quickly given the thumbs up to do so. With Jordan Reed missing a second straight game with a concussion, Davis' presence is key to the Redskins' offense. Aside from Davis, Jeremy Sprinkle is the sole tight end available for Washington.

Starting his second game in a row in the absence of Jordan Reed (concussion), Davis is dealing with an issue of his own. The nature of the injury is unknown, but Jeremy Sprinkle is the only other tight end available to the Redskins' offense Sunday.
Davis is poised for another start Sunday against the Cowboys, with fellow tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for a second straight week.
Davis took full advantage in last week's loss to the Eagles, catching four of seven targets for 59 yards and a touchdown while playing 81.3 percent of the snaps on offense. Historically, his involvement in the passing game has been inconsistent even when Reed is unavailable, but the 35-year-old still rates as one of the league's better athletes at tight end.
Davis caught four of seven targets for 59 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.
Davis provided one of the highlights of the day when he got his team on the board with a brilliant touchdown catch and run during which he hurdled a defender before bursting down the sideline. He tied for second on the team in targets but was unable to do much with the rest of his looks. With Jordan Reed (concussion) already struggling through injuries, Davis could be used similarly in next week's home matchup against Dallas.
