The 34-year-old texted the Manchester United midfielder after the match to wish him a speedy recovery from his ankle ligament injury, which is expected to keep the emerging midfielder out for at least three weeks.
Davies was at a fundraising golf tournament for his Kids for Bolton Charity when he said: "I've been a young player myself and he's broken into one of the best teams in the world and I was gutted for him.
However, he stopped short of an apology, maintaining that there was no malicious intent behind the tackle.
Davies remarked: "The referee dealt with it - there was no yellow card. I went to win the ball and it was a foul and unfortunately he got injured.
"But that's the game. It's a contact sport. When I was told Tom's injury was a suspected fracture I felt really bad.
"It's all done and dusted really and I've not heard anything since. Hopefully, he'll be back playing in three or four weeks."
"I texted him and he called me back five minutes later and said ‘don't worry about it'. He accepted that it was a genuine attempt to win the ball.
That didn't stop fans from abusing Davies on his abandoned Twitter account, which was defunct due to a previous wave of abuse back in May.
Davies accepted that such things are part and parcel of a public social media platform.
He commented: "I'm not really bothered about what any United fans are saying. You put yourself on Twitter and you're out there - you've just got to ignore the people that are giving you grief.
His wife Emma, though, has a still-functioning Twitter account and bemusedly remarked the attention she received on account of her husband.
She tweeted: "Seem to have 500 MUFC new followers. How lovely.
"My gorgeous, talented, wonderful husband is trending. How nice."
