The Chris Davis era of kick returning came to an end today, just six days after he was signed, when the Giants waived him because of a failed physical.
Davis was waived by the Bengals last Tuesday and was signed the following day. He missed the 2009 season when, with the Titans, he pulled his hamstring during the Hall-of-Fame preseason game with Buffalo.
Davis' departure leaves the Giants with Ahmad Bradshaw, Sinorice Moss, and Andre Brown to compete for the kickoff return job left vacant by the absence of Domenik Hixon, who tore his ACL in minicamp. Mario Manningham, Moss, and Aaron Ross will probably vie for Hixon's punt return job, with Ross a real possibility if he stays as an extra defensive back.
