to return to the team.

“I think he’s retired from football. That’s my guess,” Shanahan said following Tuesday’s practice, the second straight day Davis was absent from Redskins Park.

Shanahan said he believed Davis was in Atlanta and was prepared to walk away from football. He said the team has not released the third-year back.

“Has anybody seen him? I haven’t seen him yet,” Shanahan.

The team has the authority to fine a player $20,000 for skipping a day of practice, but Shanahan seemed to imply that the Redskins would not pursue the money. “I think maybe he’s made $1,500,” Shanahan said. “Add that up, that’s not good.”

Davis did not have any touches in Friday’s preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In a crowded backfield, the team did not have big plans for him.

Davis abruptly left a meeting Sunday night at Redskins Park, according to a report by ESPN 980, because he was unhappy with his playing time. Davis took to Twitter on Tuesday morning and said, “Please do not believe everything you here (sic) people. The story will be released soon. The real truth of the story.”
