Davis suffered a season-ending knee injury during OTAs and was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Davis, a 2017 first-round pick, signed a one-year deal with the Giants this offseason and was expected to compete for a depth role at inside linebacker during training camp. The 26-year-old recorded 196 tackles and eight sacks over his first two NFL campaigns, but he's struggled to stay healthy and will have appeared in just 13 games over three seasons by the start of 2024.

The Giants placed Davis (undisclosed) on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Davis will be forced to miss the entire 2023 campaign unless he reaches an injury settlement with New York. The 2017 first-round pick signed a one-year deal with the Giants in March and was expected to compete for a depth role at inside linebacker during training camp.
Davis (undisclosed) underwent a procedure recently and he's considered to be out indefinitely for the time being, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Davis was set to operate as a top reserve option behind Bobby Okereke and Darrian Beavers (knee) at interior linebacker entering the preseason, but his status is now up in the air. More information on his health will likely be provided as game action approaches, but for now, Carter Coughlin could step into a larger role.
Davis re-signed with the Giants on Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.
Davis was signed off the Lions' practice squad in late December and played in one regular season game for New York. In his four contests last season -- three of which came with Detroit -- Davis totaled 14 tackles (seven solo) and a pass breakups. He'll work to earn a regular role in the Giants' linebacker rotation in 2023.
Davis racked up 10 tackles (six solo), including a half-sack, in a loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
The Giants signed Davis off Detroit's practice squad at the end of December, and he saw his first action with New York as a result of the team resting most of its starters Sunday. The veteran made the most of the opportunity, tying for the team lead in stops and combining with Nick McCloud on a first-quarter sack of Jalen Hurts. It's uncertain how much New York plans to use Davis moving forward, but given his strong performance Week 18, it's possible he'll at least be active next weekend for the team's wild-card game against Minnesota.
