Read some of what Steve Reed of the Associated Press wrote about Panthers running back Mike Davis, who has filled in very well for the injured Christian McCaffrey.

The Bears released Davis last November, in part because they felt he didnt fit the offensive system and because parting ways with him meant theyd get a compensatory draft pick. The Bears ended up using that pick, No. 140 overall, to acquire quarterback Nick Foles in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But Davis said hes not using the snub as motivation.

I dont think its a bad thing to run angry, Davis said. Im going to always do that. The emotions, dont try to make the game bigger than it is. Be me. Dont go out there and make stupid penalties that affect the team.

The Panthers are on a roll, beating the Chargers, Cardinals and Falcons in succession to rebound from an 0-2 start and move into a tie with Tampa Bay and New Orleans for first place in the NFC South.

Davis has been a big part of that turnaround.

Since McCaffrey went on injured reserve, Davis has racked up 351 yards from scrimmage and scored three touchdowns in three starts. McCaffrey could return next week, but for now Davis will continue to carry the load.

I think hes running with tremendous physicality, Panthers coach Matt Rhule said. Hes not getting tackled by the first tackler. I think we found some runs that he feels really comfortable with and I think theres just great second effort, great yards after contact. Thats the mark of a good back.
