The Devil’s in the Davenport Details

Najeh Davenport

So first they tell us Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najeh Davenport was out with a non-football related injury last week.  Shortly thereafter, Coach Mike Tomlin says Davenport fell off of an elliptical cycle and hurt his foot.  Then, a team spokesperson tells us that he hurt his foot through some sort of acupuncture treatment.  Okay, but why did he have a black eye when he was sitting on the bench last week?  Clearly, the Steelers don’t want to tell us the details of what happened.  That’s fine, but don’t treat us like idiots.

    Any pics with his black eye? This is very interesting. The team is lying for him? That’s not acceptable.

    Can I take back my vote on whether the Steelers can beat the Patriots? Yikes.

    I noticed the black eye on the television broadcast, but I
    haven’t been able to find a picture anyplace of the black eye (Doubtless that
    picture would cast a black eye on the team).   In any case, a source
    has given me more details of what happened to Davenport,
    but I promised to not explicitly reveal those details.  Believe me, I wish I could tell you guys, but I can’t.  I figure that you
    guys are pretty smart though, and what you think happened is probably pretty
    much what happened.
