Mangini Says He’s Working With the NFL on RB Davis’ Injury

Coach Eric Mangini said he’s cooperating with the NFL in its investigation into rookie running back James Davis’ mysterious season-ending shoulder injury.

On Sunday, reported that Davis was injured during a recent post-practice period for extra work when he was hit by a Browns linebacker. According to the report, witnesses said Davis was not wearing shoulder pads while the unidentified defender who hit him had them on.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is aware of the alleged incident and has been looking into the matter.

“The review is ongoing,” Aiello said in an e-mail response to The Associated Press.

Mangini confirmed Monday that he has had discussions with the league, and said that following his own research that he’s “comfortable with where we are on it.”

“I like James Davis a lot,” Mangini said. “The last thing we want to do is ever put him in a position or anybody in a position where they could get hurt. I’ve talked to a lot of people involved in it and we’re going to continue to work with the league on it.”

    Man, it’s a sad statement when it’s hard to believe a coach on something like this. But I’m sorry. I have a hard time taking Mangini at his word here. With the pattern of behavior Mangini’s shown I can easily imagine him setting this up on purpose thinking it was to toughen Davis up.
