His biggest task this week, he said, was getting his wind back.
“I think it’s just getting out there, running around, taking a lot of reps with my team, with the 1 defense and scout team, just to get as many reps as I can to get my wind up,” he said. “I think when I do that, I’ll be ready.”
Davis was originally thought to be out three to four weeks but it turned into an eight-week absence and he said he’s only been running full speed for a week.
The game Sunday pits Broncos first-year head coach Vic Fangio against his former team. Both are coming off losses on opening weekend. Chicago lost 10-3 at home to Green Bay and Denver lost at Oakland 24-16.
TV cameras caught Davis on Monday night dejectedly watching the action.
“Yeah, I hate it. I hate not being able to have an influence on the game,” Davis said. “I feel when I’m out here I bring some more passion and attitude.
“You know, I’m nice off the field, but on the field I say some things that my mom wouldn’t like me to say and act the way that my dad didn’t really teach me to act. But I feel like I’m excited to get back out there.”
