While Robert Griffin III's injury is getting all the attention at Washington Redskins training camp, tight end Fred Davisrecovery from a torn Achilles tendon will play an important role in how the offense shapes up early in the season.

Davis said Tuesday he has no inkling of soreness in his foot, and he showed off some impressive speed during practice, according to The Washington Post.

In fact, the sixth-year pro felt so good, he repeatedly got behind the Redskins' safeties and at one point even dove for an underthrown pass from Rex Grossman.

Davis isn't a player who has to lay out for a catch in training camp. If healthy, he's the starter and -- along with Pierre Garcon -- one of RGIII's top targets. His willingness to do so displays his confidence in his own health.
