That news is per The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala, who said Davis will miss three to four weeks of training camp and preseason action but should be okay for the Broncos' Week 1 opener against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 9.
The 27-year-old Davis started all 16 games for the Broncos last season and amassed 114 tackles (80 solo), one interception and one half-sack.
Davis spoke with Mike Klis of 9News and other reporters about the circumstances surrounding the injury.
"It was the very last (No.) 1 rep I had of the whole day," Davis said. "The very last play. I went to plant and run towards the ball, the ball was thrown and I just felt something kind of pull in my calf. Nothing major happened."
Davis also said he'll "definitely be there, no doubt" when asked if he'll be good to go Week 1.
That's good news for the Broncos, as Davis was the team's leading tackler over the past two seasons.
As for who will get inside linebacker reps in the meantime, Troy Renck of Denver ABC7 provided those options:
Cody Roark of Locked On NFL Network also provided a few other names:
Denver opens its preseason slate against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, August 1 at 8 p.m. ET. The Broncos have five preseason games with that matchup acting as the Hall of Fame Game, so the inside linebacker behind Davis could see a few more reps with the regular season rapidly approaching.
