The ice dancer, who performs with Gleb Smolkin, said she will have to wear a cast for two more weeks before being approved to resume training.
“My leg’s been in a cast for four weeks now. Two more weeks to go! We’ll miss test events, but will continue preparing for the new season,” Davis wrote on Instagram, without explaining how she sustained the injury.
Soviet and Russian figure skating legend Tatiana Tarasova has hailed the International Skating Union’s (ISU) decision to cancel the junior Grand Prix season, stating that children’s health is more important than competitions.
On Monday the skating governing body called off all junior Grand Prix events “on the advice of the Medical Commission and the Council-appointed working group."
When asked whether the ISU’s ruling was terrible in terms of the junior competitive schedule, the renowned coach said that people have the wrong understanding of what is really "terrible."
“It’s 'terrible' when war takes place and people die. Now, they just cancelled junior Grand Prix. Previously, the Olympics were re-scheduled, this is happening around the world.
“Countries have been separated by the virus, the pandemic has differently impacted various states. Everyone has been cautious while taking decisions. First of all, we should think about people, about kids,” Tarasova explained.
“Why should children suffer? They can be infected at any moment, we don’t need to take this risk,” she added.
Senior figure skating events are now under threat of being canceled as well, with the ISU expected to announce its verdict next month.
The International Skating Union (ISU) has reacted to the COVID-19 crisis by putting in place a CHF5 million (£4.15 million/$5.2 million/€4.55 million) provision.
The provision was created, the governing body said, to "sustain any risks of loss in response to crisis situations (such as the coronavirus crisis)".
The move was disclosed in the body’s 2019 financial report.
After taking into account the new reserve, the ISU posted a profit for the year of just over CHF2 million (£1.66 million/$2.1 million/€1.8 million) on operating income of CHF39.6 million (£32.9 million/$41.2 million/€36 million).
The most striking aspect of ISU finances, however, remains its extraordinarily rich asset-base, with financial assets alone amounting to CHF299.3 million (£248.4 million/$311.3 million/€272.4 million).
This should leave it well insulated against the impact of the killer virus no matter what the coming weeks and months throw at the sports industry.
"Due to the necessary containment measures and in particular the cancellation of three 2020 ISU Championships", it said, "the ISU expects a negative impact on its activities for the financial reporting period 2020."
It went on: "The COVID-19 crisis…is expected to have lasting detrimental consequences on the ISU incomes in the short and medium term.
"The cancellation of three ISU Championships in March/April 2020 involving substantial rights fee reductions and the looming world-wide recession and related slowdown of sports-related commercial activities, constitute the main challenges in the coming years.
"In addition, the marketing possibilities for niche sports in a constantly changing and innovative digital driven and increasingly competitive marketplace will call for new expertise and new solutions.
"While the incomes for the Figure Skating Branch could be slightly expanded, the situation for the Speed Skating Branch remains critical, although advertising agreements have been maintained at previous levels.
"Specifically, the ISU has for the time being been unable to put in place a Speed Skating title sponsor with a similarly lucrative agreement as in the past.
"Also, due to different reasons beyond the ISU’s control, the ISU was unable to maintain sponsorship agreements in the key markets for short track speed skating, namely China and South Korea."
The International Skating Union announced on July 20 that the 2020/21 ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating (JGP) series had been cancelled.
In a press statement, the ISU cited "increased travel and entry restrictions which would seriously complicate the travel of Junior Skaters with the consequence that some ISU Members simply cannot or do not feel comfortable to send Junior teams to the remaining ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating countries".
It added, "Furthermore, the potential extensive sanitary/ medical care measures (including possible quarantine) would put an unsustainable burden on the organizers."
One week ago, the Japanese Skating Federation said it would not be sending athletes to JGP or Challenger events due to COVID-19.
It is the latest in a long line of figure skating events to fall victim to the Coronavirus pandemic with the 2020 World Championships scheduled for March in Montreal also cancelled.
The cream of junior figure skating The ladies' singles category attracted most attention last year with Kamila Valieva, US senior national champion Alysa Liu and Lee Hae-in both winning two events apiece.
At the Grand Prix Final in Turin, it was Valieva - the latest prodigy from Eteri Tutberidze's Sambo-70 club - who took victory from Liu with Valieva's training partner Daria Usacheva collecting bronze.
Valieva landed a quad toe loop and broke Alexandra Trusova's free skate junior world record as she also claimed gold at the World Junior Championships in Tallinn, Estonia with Usacheva beating Liu for silver.
All three are still just 14 years old and would have been eligible to compete at this year's JGP.
Neither competed at Lausanne 2020 which was won by Korea's You Young after she competed in the senior Grand Prix.
On the men's side, Sato Shun scored a surprise victory at last year's JGP Final before compatriot Kagiyama Yuma stole the limelight for the rest of the season.
Kagiyama was third in the Japanese senior nationals to Uno Shoma and Hanyu Yuzuru, even outscoring double Olympic champion Hanyu in the free skate.
He then won gold at the Lausanne 2020 YOG ahead of Russian rival Andrei Mozalev before finishing third in the Four Continents behind Hanyu and Jason Brown.
Mozalev finally put one over on Kagiyama at the World Junior Championships having been second at the JGP Final and at Lausanne 2020.
Both men are 17 and opted to stay in the junior ranks last season despite being eligible for senior competition.
Speaking to Olympic Channel in Lausanne, Mozalev confirmed that he would be stepping up to the seniors this season.
While Kagiyama and Mozalev look set to leave the juniors behind, that would not the case for JGP Final and Lausanne 2020 bronze medallist Daniil Samsonov who turned 15 after the 1 July cut-off for the senior Grand Prix.
He says that training under Tutberidze alongside the likes of Alena Kostornaia and Anna Shcherbakova has helped his development, particularly when it comes to quad jumps.
