Not sure, but I just found this on kffl.com

Texans | D. Davis feeling pain on the outside of his knee
Sun, 13 Aug 2006 21:21:47 -0700

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans RB Domanick Davis (knee) says the outside of his knee is sore. The doctors have told him that his knee will always be sore, but he's got to learn to play with the pain. It will be interesting to see if the sold performance of the team's rookie running backs Saturday, Aug. 12, inspires Davis to get back on the practice field.

My thinking on the thing is, if he hasn't been able to practice because of the pain and now the doctors are telling him he is going to have to learn to play with the pain, how is he going to hold up in a 16 game season when he can't even practice?

Any one else worry that DD will retire before the season starts? A nagging knee injury and always being in pain. He might not think its worth it.

Or he just doesnt like to practice.

I've thought about that as well but I can't really make a determination because all we are hearing is that doctors say his knee is fine, then we here he is having swelling and pain, he is not practicing, and now the doctors are telling him he is going to have to learn to pay through the pain. Not sure if he'll retire, but if we do see him on the field I doubt we see the same DD we are used to and I doubt he sees as much action as he is used to seeing. Just MO from everything I have heard.

I really don't think he'll retire. From everything I've read it sounds like he's waiting for his knee to feel normal again and the trainers are trying to convince him that he needs to redefine what normal is.

I think he'll play this year. Will it be in game 1? I don't know. Will he still be playing in game 16? I don't know. Will he play next year? I don't know.

He isn't anywhere close to a retirement. That knee will probably limit him to a specialist back (3rd down back) long term since I don't think it will ever hold up a full season as the primary feature back going forward.

The thing I don't get is that the doctors say his knee is fine and that he has to learn to play through the pain. I thought pain was your body's way of telling you something is wrong. I had a knee scope in high school and it bothers me every so often, but it's not constant pain. Who knows, maybe I am wrong...

He will not retire. He would be a fool if he did. Worst case is he goes on IR around week 6 after testing it a few times. Maybe a year off helps the "mysterious knee ailment" - no one knows how he bruised it.

Most importantly, he has a nice contract and can earn ~$4m for trying to see how it feels.

Listening to 610 just a few minutes ago, they said that information has filtered down today that DD's condition is unfortunately a "DEGENERATIVE THING" and that he may never come back. As I've pointed out in the past, it sounded that his signs and symptoms were pointing more and more to degenerative arthritic (bone on bone) changes in the knee.........this doesn't improvement with time , and certainly not with continued trauma.............and it doesn't improve with more surgery. This only confirms to me that DD's knee will only worsen and become more painful with time and use..........and no one should be asking him to play through such a condition which can only lead to the need for knee replacement. DD is not a sloucher or afraid of pain. This condition can be unrelenting and excrutiatingly painful. There is no future for him if he can no longer walk let alone run. If he indeed the facts are what they seem and he sees retirement this year, rather than criticizing him as "dogging it" we should all wish him well in making a wise decision.

CND, a medical question. How can you have cartilage removed and not have a "bone on bone" condition eventually? I know a few people who've had cartilage damage, either by football injury, or just falling on the knee, like my mother did, and they all eventually contracted degenerative arthritus in the knee. My mother had her knee replaced about 4 years ago. That was a horror!

Anyways, I've had my suspicions that DD wouldn't play this season, so this doesn't come as a surprise.

Thanks cloak, I was hoping you would chime in, unfortunately, not the news I wanted to hear.

Too bad for DD. 3 good, solid, productive NFL years are still better than most people can hope for and, if he's invested wisely, he can live a long life without much worry or want.

I feel for DD if this is truly something that'll never improve ..... but on the other hand, I find myself less and less concerned about the Texan's running back situation ....
