Coby Davis to Miss Remainder of Season

Some unfortunate news

Wake Forest Head Coach Dave Clawson announced on Tuesday that redshirt senior defensive back Coby Davis will miss the remainder of the season with a non-contact injury he sustained against Vanderbilt.

Davis had one of the best plays of the game on Saturday, when he intercepted Vanderbilt QB Mike Wright’s pass and took it 31 yards back to the endzone to put Wake Forest on the board. Late in the game, Davis appeared to slip on the wet turf in Nashville and had to be helped off the field.

Injuries are just the worst, and I absolutely hate this for Davis in what could be his last year playing college football. He also missed almost all of the 2018 season after suffering a knee injury against Tulane in the first game of the season.

Davis could apply for a medical waiver and try to get another year of eligibility from the NCAA, and Clawson has also said that he has interest in coaching in the future.

Whatever Davis decides to do, hopefully he gets well soon. Injuries have always and will always be the worst part of college sports.
