Linebacker Jarrad Davis returned from a neck injury this week and recorded eight tackles, two for a loss, and deflected a pass in the Lions’ home loss against the Panthers on Sunday.

Linebacker Antonio Morrison tallied seven tackles for the Colts as Indianapolis beat the San Francisco 49ers 26-23 in overtime.
