Davis ready for bigger role in Green Bay

Knile Davis

25 year-old Knile Davis was told Monday evening that he had been traded to the Green Bay Packers, and now he’ll go from the Chiefs inactive list, to a possible starter.

“I’m gonna do what I can. Right now I’m learning so they haven’t told me anything as far as playing time Ill get so I guess we’ll see as the week goes on,” said Davis.

“I don’t think we can expect him to run our offense and every play in it but I’m sure we’ll be able to get at least a few plays into a package that he feels comfortable with,” said Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

In the Packers preseason finale against the Chiefs, Davis ran for 58 yards and a touchdown, but his most productive season was back in 2014 when he rushed for 436 yards and 6 touchdowns.

“He’s definitely a talented young player we had a chance to compete against him, see him live in the preseason game and he had a lot of production that night so just looking forward to getting him in the mix and get going.

Davis was listed third on the Chiefs’ depth chart and after the return of Jamaal Charles he found his role was even more diminished but now hopes his skills can help an unhealthy Packers running back group.

“I feel like I’m off the reigns, I’ve been on the sideline, I’ve been itching to get in the game and be a part of the team which I was in Kansas City I did what I could, I’m just excited to be a part of Green Bay and do what I can here and hopefully my role is bigger, said Davis.”
