Ike Davis was asked if he might play again this season before yesterday’s game against the Cardinals.
“I’m not gonna tell you I’m gonna play this season because I’ve told you like 16 times this year [that I will] and it hasn’t happened,” said Davis, out since May 10. “Give it three weeks and we’ll see, either ‘yes’ or ‘no.'”
Terry Collins of course would like to see a healthy Ike on the field this year, to erase any doubts and speculation about his health going into next season.
“I would say the majority odds are I probably wouldn’t play this year. …,” Davis said, according to the NY Post and ESPN “Obviously there’s a possibility that I don’t need surgery. We just need it to heal. And if it doesn’t heal, we have to do something to make it heal.”
Oh no, here’s the kicker:
“But next year I will be back and healthy. I promise.”
Does anyone realistically expect Ike to be back this year?
