Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera spoke with the media on Tuesday, and he sounded very confident about linebacker Thomas Davis' chances of suiting up without any limitations for Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

Davis broke his arm in the NFC Championship game on January 24th, he underwent surgery the next day on the 25th, and just one week later he was practicing again on Monday, February 1st. According to Rivera, Davis looked great in practice and felt fine the day after.

In his 10th season in the NFL, Davis was very productive and almost never left the field. He did his best work against the pass -- he finished with four interceptions and a combined 12 quarterback sacks and hits, per Pro Football Focus. He also logged 1,019 defensive snaps -- good for the 13th-most at the linebacker position.
