Giants waive Chris Davis after he fails physical

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Kick returner Chris Davis didn't last very long with the New York Giants.

The Giants announced on Monday that they waived Davis after he failed his physical.

The Giants had claimed Davis on waivers last week in a move to get a veteran returner after Domenik Hixon suffered a major knee injury during a mandatory minicamp earlier in the month.

A 2007 fourth-round draft choice of the Tennessee Titans, Davis did not play in 2009 after injuring a hamstring in the Hall of Fame game against Buffalo. He played in 17 regular-season games for the Titans, catching seven passes for 68 yards. He averaged 9.1 yards on 33 punt returns and 26.0 yards on six kickoff returns.

Davis was signed by Cincinnati in March and was waived last week.
