The Carolina Panthers were elated on Sunday as they won their first NFC Championship since 2003 to advance to Super Bowl 50. In all of their excitement and joy, there was one glaring dark spot as starting linebacker Thomas Davis went down with a broken arm in the game.
Davis has been one of the team’s biggest leaders the last few years and he doesn’t want to miss his chance at playing in the Super Bowl. He vowed to play on February 7, so he took drastic measures by having surgery at 3 in the morning on Monday.

Davis has less than two weeks to get his arm healed so he can play against the Denver Broncos, but if he’s this dedicated, then I wouldn’t be surprised to see number 58 running around making plays in Santa Clara.
On the year, Davis has recorded 105 tackles and four interception while forcing four fumbles. He would be a huge boost for the Panthers if he is able to play in the Super Bowl.
