Thomas Davis expects to play in the Super Bowl despite breaking his right forearm in the NFC Championship Game.
Davis underwent surgery which included 11 or 12 screws and a metal plate inserted into his arm.
Davis is so optimistic about facing the Denver Broncos in Santa Clara, California, on Feb. 7 that he fought back when teammates playfully started grabbing at his arm.
"They kind of grabbed my arm like, 'You can't retaliate. You can't do anything,'" Davis said. "It was feeling a lot better today than it was yesterday, so I retaliated like, 'If you want to try me now.'
"It was all in fun. It feels good to be healing up now, knowing I have a lot more time to heal."
