Return man Chris Davis fails physical, waived by Giants

The search for a replacement for return specialist Domenik Hixon continues for the New York Giants.

The Giants looked like they had one nice option when they claimed Chris Davis, a veteran returner and wide receiver off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals. But his stay was short lived as the Giants waived him today after he failed his physical.

Davis dealt with a serious hamstring issue that he suffered in preseason last year with the Tennessee Titans. The Giants will have to continue looking for a replacement for Hixon, who was lost for the season when he suffered a torn ACL in a practice at the New Meadowlands Stadium earlier this month. Cornerback Aaron Ross is a potential in-house candidate.

If Davis cannot pass a physical, he may have a beef with the Bengals, who released him last week.
