Im not saying DD is imjury prone , take a look back on page one of this thread (7th reply to this topic ) . "IF only Carr could finish a game with a clean uniform."
What im getting at here is the fact he has missed a lot of Preperation / Practice / Reps that had he not ben injured he is possibly better prepared . Missing training camp and practice time with the first team has hurt , no doubt about it , he's just not playing near as well as last season ....Hollings nor Wells aregonna take the starting position from DD.
No , he's not the fastest nor biggest back the Texans have . But he is the most complete back on the Texans roster . Emmitt Smith is a good comparison for the type of back DD is although he has done it for many seasons . If DD can have a carreer half as good as Smith's im sure the coaching staff / managment will be thrilled as will most of the fans .
Its my best guess that DD comes on strong late in the season ..... Good luck and Good Health DD .
