From what i've heard its not to bad i think they were holding him out for precautionary. I hope he's back for the Vikes if he can hold on to the ball which i'm sure he can we can start blowing teams out (well some teams) !!!

I hope he's back too, but I'm not sure about blowing teams out. We'll definately need an effective running game against the Vikings and their talented DLine. I hope the O-Line plays like they did yesterday. They were playing great. Can't wait till Sunday.

From listening to Capers on his radio show, he said that Davis is "making progress" in that he doesn't feel much pain when running straight ahead, but it still feels tender when cutting, so it's "day to day".

Translation: I don't think Capers will want to risk re-injury until he's confident that Davis is 100 per cent, and he won't be 100 per cent on Sunday. So, maybe next week.

Well i'm pretty happy with our runningback situation, i was expecting DD to miss a couple games and Hollings is the only one who hasn't broken out yet. I think we might be one of the few teams to have 3 different players rush for 100 yards in a game this year.

If Davis is going to be this delicate, the Texans definitely need to start evaluating college RB's

I wanna see Hollings out there getting a bulk of the carries. I know i feel like i'm jumping on the Wells bandwagon, but in the 2 games he has played this season he has run the ball well. Not great, but very good. On his only goal line situation he got the ball in on the first try, could turn into our short yardage back.


The couple of runs i saw from Hollings looked quite impressive, also the 2 games Davis doesn't play (he barely played in KC) we are 2-0

Let's try not to overreact. Running backs take a lot of punishment. And from what I saw Sunday, they seem to already have adequate depth at the position if the offensive line is doing its job.

don't think he really was intended to be. i think the o-line stunk it up so bad in the first two game, carr had to check down. and even 20-25 carries means he's still a big part, not counting the 2-4 receptions he's going to get as well.

wow, i guess davis decided he wanted to severly sprain his ankle instead of shutting up doubters against the cheifs

The Texans need to find a running back who can be depended on to play every Sunday. Sure, injuries are going to happen.......especially at running back. However, Davis is proving to be a little too delicate to be a starting running back in the NFL. He was injured at the beginning of last year, then once he became the starting running back he ended up missing time later in the season. He has already missed a full game and most of another this year. He has never....NEVER.....made it through a complete season in the NFL or college without missing time due to injury.

DD will never be another Priest Holmes, that's for sure!! Holmes ran over a 100 yds against us on a hurt ankle, and he's still out there playing. The NFL is not for weenies! JMO

That has nothing very little to do with Davis and a lot to do with how Palmer calls plays when Davis is in there. As long as they keep the offense opened up like this, Davis will have a good year and the Texans will win ball games. When they start thinking Davis needs to be 45% of the offense, that's a problem.

Ladanian Tomlinson is not available!!! I repeat, "Ladanian Tomlinson is not available!"... I don't know who you are all thinking about when you talk about RBs being durable and playing 16 games in a season with any regularity:

Jamal Lewis- missed two complete seasons
Clinton Portis- missed the playoffs and a coupl of games last year
Ricky Williams- well, you know.
Priest Holmes- hip injury in 2002
Ahman Green- misses games, including a few last year
Stephen Davis- has missed games every season of his career
Travis Henry- has missed time in 3 of his 4 years.
Edgerin James- missed an entire season, plus other games
Marshal Faulk- one season in Indy, significant time in St.Louis the past 4yrs
Deuce McAllister- umm, he's out right now
Shaun Alexander- (one exception) he's been very reliable
Michael Bennett- no way!
Fred Taylor- has missed many games in his career



So, let's have some perspective. There aren't many RBs that can take the pounding weekly and not miss significant time. Who wouldn't want Tomlinson or Emmitt Smith?

We're 0-2 when he's played and 2-0 when he hasn't. Sounds like we don't need real bad. It's becoming more and more apparent that the durablility issue
is long-term for DD. He may end up doing for us what it was origionally thought he would - 3rd down back and maybe punt/kickoff returns. RB by
committee is working real good right now anyway.
