"Another very, very good report today that the ankle is responding very, very well," Collins said. "There's no discomfort."
Collins noted the true test will come next week when Davis attempts to run on the ground bearing his full body weight. If the cartilage damage has not healed and pain resurfaces, Davis would be facing season-ending surgery.
As for the current treadmill activity, Collins explained: "It's not 100 percent weight-bearing, so each day they can add a little bit more and a little bit more. Yesterday I think it was 45 pounds (of body weight) they took off. And then today was 35 pounds."
