Davis underwent surgery on Monday and watched practice on Wednesday. He’s determined to play in Super Bowl 50.
"If he said he’s going to do it, I believe he will," Rivera said. "That just shows the right type of mental attitude that you need. Thomas is really all about the team. He’s the heart and soul of who we are.
"We’ll see how he is each day. (He probably won’t practice) until we get to Santa Clara."
"We are being careful," Rivera said.
"I’m preparing as usual. My foot feels great," Allen said. "I’m going to keep working and getting ready for this game. No limitations.
"I would have loved to play (in the NFC Championship). Did you see how much fun those guys were having on the field? As a competitor I want to be on the field all the time, but I respect Coach Rivera’s decision. I just want to be a part of this with these guys. This is a special group. Everybody wants to contribute."
