Carolina Panthers All-Pro outside linebacker Thomas Davis wasted no time getting surgery to repair the ulna bone fracture in his right arm suffered during Carolina's 49-15 thrashing of Arizona in the NFC championship game.

Panthers head team physician Dr. Patrick Connor performed surgery on Davis the next day, Monday Jan. 25, inserting a plate and 11-12 screws into the linebacker's arm to fix the bone. Courtesy NFL.com's Albert Breer, check out the hardware:

“It was a light day but I took every opportunity that I could to bump it against something and really see how it feels,” Davis said of Monday's practice, per Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer. “All in all it was pretty good. I know it’s going to be different when you’re actually out there and things are live when we’re playing the game on Sunday, but at the same time for it to be my first opportunity to get back out there I really felt good.”
