Titus Davis’ Injury Will Hurt Chippewas


There’s no doubt about it, if you talk college football in Mount Pleasant, you’re going to talk about Titus Davis.

More from Central Michigan Chippewas

The senior wide out is easily one of the best players in the MAC conference and is widely considered the best receiver in the conference. He’s also a solid NFL prospect.

Davis, decided that the NFL can wait and he came back to Central Michigan for his senior year to help the Chippewas return to the top of the MAC, something they haven’t done since 2009.

Last season Davis racked up 1109 yards and 8 touchdowns. In fact, he entered this season only needing 928 yards to become Central Michigan’s all time leading receiver.

However last Thursday, not only was Davis held in check for most of the game, he suffered a knee injury that he was unable to return from.

To add salt in the wound is the type of play he was injured on; Davis was back deep to return a punt like he had been all night, he actually broke a 63 yard return earlier in the game.

But this time around the punt was low hitting a Central Michigan player from behind resulting in a live ball, Davis made a heads up play to recover the ball, but in the process was hit hard in the knee and needed help coming off the field.

The Chippewas were able to hold on to a 20-16 win, a game closer than most fans would like to see, but nonetheless still a win.

However, as for Davis, at the end of the game he was seen in crutches with his knee wrapped up.

According to head coach, Dan Enos it appears to be a knee sprained for the all conference receiver.

While it’s still early and needs to be evaluated more, if it is a sprained the Chippewas could be looking at at-lease 2 weeks without their team MVP from a season ago.

Taking a look ahead to the next two weeks Central Michigan could be in trouble as they go on the road to play Purdue. Followed by hosting Syracuse.

Both winnable but yet, very tough games.

If Davis is unable to play in those constants, it only gets tougher.
