CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Linebacker Thomas Davis has a busy day as Mini-Camp comes to an end.
- Davis was also walking alongside Kyleigh Dean, a Make-A-Wish recipient
- Davis also spoke on the recent news of his four-game suspension
- Says anything he puts in his body is ultimately his responsibility
Davis was taking reduced reps, as a way to get some of the other linebackers up to speed.
He was also walking alongside Kyleigh Dean, a Make-A-Wish recipient who dressed out and was on the field with Davis and the team.
The 13-year-old suffers from congenital generalized lipodystrophy; a rare condition that causes extensive heart, liver, and kidney damage.
"We talked trash to Cam all practice long," said Davis of his time with Dean. "He came up and tried to speak to her and she stuck to it. She asked him a question, 'Why you so salty?' I absolutely loved that. That made my day."
Davis set Kyleigh up with cleats and gear as part of her day with the Panthers.
Davis also spoke on the recent news of his four-game suspension, after he tested positive for a banned substance.
"It was definitely something that was unintentional," said Davis. "Sometimes in life, things happen that are totally out of your control. When you're taking something that you've used for a long period of time, you don't expect it to be any different."
Davis says he is appreciative of the support he has received since the suspension news came out. He no longer uses the substance in question and maintains that anything he puts in his body is ultimately his responsibility.
