Panthers' Davis continues to show his toughness on field

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers have never questioned veteran outside linebacker Thomas Davis' toughness.

Now the national audience won't, either.

During the fourth quarter of last Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, the 32-year-old Davis dislocated his left ring finger while taking on a block, quickly popped it back into place and finished out the play by making a tackle on running back Marshawn Lynch for no gain.

The play went viral in the hours that followed the game.

Davis shrugged off the play as if it was no big deal.

''My pain tolerance is pretty high right now,'' said Davis, the only player known to have returned to playing in the NFL after tearing the ACL in the same knee three times.
