I would rather give the rookies a shot and see how there camps come along and who knows Morency might come around. He has all the same skills as DD with alittle more speed. He just doesnt' have the since of feel for the game. I like Wali Lundy though and at basically 6'-0", 220lbs playing weight coming from an team with the same o-line Blocking Scheme, I think he can flourish IMO. If they can't cut it, then go after Brown, Benett, A Train from Chicago, etc.

Maybe Saturday morning to see if there is any of that "post workout swelling". The first full week should be the most telling.

DD's health is one of the higher items on my worry list.

Domanick Davis: Will be Eased Into Practice

RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com
Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Update: Davis (knee inflammation) is expected to be eased into practice when training camp starts later this week, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Recommendation: Davis is expected to be a big part of Houston's offense, though it's likely we'll see head coach Gary Kubiak expand David Carr's game with the addition of wide receiver Eric Moulds and tight end Jeb Putzier. As has been the case the previous three seasons, fantasy owners should keep an eye on the backup running back situation, which appears to be a battle between Vernand Morency and Antowain Smith entering training camp.

Wasn't DD all of the offense last year till he got hurt? You must be better then just good ,if the other team knows all they have to do is stop you, and you still bring it.

I suggest that every time DD runs the ball, the fans scream "oh, well". In the new system, he should get 1200 yds even if he does miss a couple games. But this has been discussed on many other threads.:stirpot:

IMO, the wisest thing to do is get DD fully healthy before he ever puts on cleats again.

And IMO, he's going to need more surgery and a whole year of "easing back into the system."

We uncovered a hidden treasure when we selected him. No need in rushing him back and very possibly causing long-term damage when we can survuve a year without him.

I think you bring in Chris Brown, see what happens.

I think Davis is a special player, but for the sake of the offense and maybe more importantly for the sake of Davis' own career, they need to find him some help. I'm not an A. Smith fan. Hopefully Lundy or Morency will step up.

Titans | Fisher says Brown is starting RB
Wed, 26 Jul 2006 14:32:29 -0700

Craig Tapper, of TitansOnline.com, reports Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said RB Chris Brown is the team's starting running back and that he believes Brown's trade request may stem from a switch of agents. "I have not spoken with Chris," said Fisher. "That does not surprise me and that should be an indication of where Chris is (in this process). I could understand Chris wanting an extension. Chris wants to be here. So, him asking for a trade does not imply that he doesn't want to be here. Chris changed agents and new agents came in and they had a sit-down meeting and they want to talk extension. Right now is not necessarily the time to talk extension because we're busy with other contracts. They took it upon themselves to demand a trade and went public with it, so to me, I'm going to throw this in the agents' laps and not Chris'."

So where is your medical degree from? Exactly what did you think when you examined Davis' knee?

Chris Brown wouldn't make it through 2 games with us before spraining his mangina

I've changed my mind. IMO, I think that Davis sat out OTAs as a precautionary measure and to save miles on those running back legs. I've heard he's a quick learner of systems so by paying attention in meetings and participating in training camp he'll be well versed in the offense and ready to go when the season begins.

1. According to a poster on this board, a guy who is well-versed in sports medicine, DD's symptoms COULD be indicative of a knee with fragments or clutter left in the knee after surgery. This has been causing the problematic swelling, and it would require another procedure to go in and get it clean.

2. DD cannot complete even a basic walk-through without the knee swelling and thus having to stop.

3. What makes anyone think that the guy is ready for camp? Oh, because it's been a few weeks since OTA's and "now" it's magically healed? Right.

You don't need a medical degree to see that the guy's not ready.

He didn't sit out OTAs.

The guy tried to do some reps of some sort (even if it might not have been with the rest of the team) and he couldn't do it without swelling occurring.

A dose of reality for all of us would be nice. And I know that the Texans P.R. deptartment (coaches and DD included) are trying to spin this as positive as they can, which they should, but we need to be ready for the very real idea that DD might be sitting out for a lot longer.

I don't understand why they don't just sit him out for a year, get him in for another procedure, and try to get on top of this whole mess. What's ONE season vs. never playing again because he got rushed back out there?

A clean up should take a guy a few weeks to recover from. If he has some scare tissue that needs to be addressed, they will know real soon. If he is unable to go this weekend due to swelling look for him to get scoped real soon and then be ready for the regular season.

If this is a chronic problem then sitting out the year will not improve it.

I know what you are saying and would have agreed two days ago; I think I was one of the people that talked about his knee swelling after workouts on another thread.

However, as I said I have changed my mind due to some other discussions. It is now my opinion that his injury wasn't that bad at OTAs. We shall see which reality is real very soon.

About as close to the Horses mouth as we can get at the moment.

DD according to Kubiak

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/detail.php?PRKey=2670

(on the health situation with Domanick Davis) “We're going to find out with Domanick. We were very cautious with him back in OTA’s and in the off-season. We all know that he has a knee that's giving him problems. We'll be smart with him, he'll be a one-a-day practice guy for us. So I think we're going to know a lot more about that knee and how he's doing probably here over the course of the next week. It has been good, he's been working well. Kevin feels good about it, Dominick feels good about it. But until we test it hard for about a week we're not going to know for sure. We're hoping for the best. We sure hope he's going to be fine and play throughout the season. Last year he missed what, five starts, so you always prepare for those moments and that's on every spot on your team.”

is there anyone out there with a medical background that can explain why "non invasive" knee surgery is taking so long for both these guys to recover?

HOUSTON (Dec. 28, 2005) -- Houston Texans running back Domanick Davis had arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss the season finale at San Francisco

Kubiak presser July 26, 2006 HoustonTexans.com

(on the health situation with Domanick Davis) “We're going to find out with Domanick. We were very cautious with him back in OTA’s and in the off-season. We all know that he has a knee that's giving him problems.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (July 27, 2006) -- Jets running back Curtis Martin won't practice when training camp opens July 28 because of a lingering knee injury.
Martin was placed on the physically unable to perform list, along with receiver Justin McCareins and center Trey Teague. The 33-year-old Martin had arthroscopic surgery last December to clean out his right knee, then was limited during minicamp last month.
Though the surgery wasn't considered invasive, it has taken Martin some time to recover. Martin and coach Eric Mangini were unavailable for comment July 27, when players reported for camp

If you go to multimedia on this web site you can listen to some of the players reporting to camp. Heading the list was DD and he looks and sounds good. I think he is quite confident and expressed his appreciation of Kubiak have enough confidence in him that they didn't draft RB.

DD had a twinkle in his eye. He's a lot smarter than people think. He likes to kid around a lot. The guy has a personality. If he is close to 100% we could be a real challenge for a lot of teams.

I don't know about all that......... get him some help as in Offensive line maybe.

Emmit Smith, Clinton Portis, Terrell Davis, Mike Anderson, Orlandis Gary...... decent talented individuals..... who had offensive lines that would get them into the secondary untouched. for the first five yards of most of these guys big runs, no one touched them. DD.... he has to fight for 3 yards on most every carry he gets. That ain't easy on the knees.

I do agree that we should let DD take all the time he needs to heal..... even if that means a whole season. Because I like him that much, and I think he has earned it.

A. Smith, I think will do very well for us. Morency, Lundy....... let them take a few snaps as well...... I think our running game is going to be more than adequate with any of those guys. & I'd still much rather bring in more secondary help, than worry about adding names to our stable of running backs.

He looked really upbeat - even after practice, unlike earlier this year when he was a bit more guarded with his answers about his health. Now, what happens when the real hitting starts is another story but at least so far so good.

I agree we both of you. Kubes and the boys were sold on DeAngelo Williams. The Bills up the bid, and BECAUSE OF CONFIDENCE the Texans did not response, not wanting to give more than a 2nd and 4th for Williams.

Lundy was the only rb and he was on day 2 of the draft, 6th round. I am really glad the way things turned out the way it did. Ryans only lasted until the 2nd round because of this years class of LBs and the chemistry of the RBs is solid. DD deserves to remain the feature back. Morency is a perfect fit to backup DD and ASmith is kinda of a stopgap so Morency can grow into that role. And Lundy will be a speical teams player, maybe return man and add even more depth.
