Default Dom Davis' career is over

If you heard the interview with Bob Allen, it sounds like this is it. He said he had "a bit of arthritis"... He also said that he was missing meniscus that can't be repaired and that part of his knee is "almost bone on bone". He said he won't be cut on again and that he's ready to deal with going on IR.

Yeah he talked about "healing up", but you cannot regrow cartilage or muscle. Add that to the statement where he said he would not have any more surgeries, I don't know what he is expecting to happen.

Was wondering when this thread would start. I think the coaches all, of course, know this about DD. Wonder why "Mr. Open with the media Kubiak" and company have failed to be as forthcoming about his condition.

In the interview he had on Field Pass Davis said they will make the decision on Saturday, but he didn't sound to optimistic.

He was one of our few consistant bright spots in previous years, I really hate to see him go.

He needs to write on the blackboard 100 times . . . Denial is not a river in Egypt

Another thing to keep in mind, he gets an $800,000 roster bonus. He gets an extra 800 grand if he doesn't get cut. Nice.

I really don't understand what the point is in putting him on IR unless he will play through the pain.

I wouldn't take a shot at Kubiak about this. He's trying to be sensitive about a sensitive issue, and make every effort to do right with his players.

To me he looked like he was saying that he is done. He said he wouldn't come back unless he was 100%. So, since his knee will never be 100% again and Casserly gave him that big contract with millions of guaranteed $$$$...I think he is done.

I don't think you can cut an injured player. It's against NFL rules I believe. I do believe you can reach an injury settlement though. At leasts that's what I think I heard on the radio.

Unfortunately, DD was allowed to "run his knees to the ground" for a long time before surgery was ever entertained.

DD was a excellent RB!

Here's to DD:

Don't give up on him yet (wait, after everything that's happened, I think I will) It's really too bad that things might come to an end like this for such a solid player.

It doesn't make any sense to me either. The doctors have supposedly told him that the knee will never be the same, and that he will have to deal with the pain. But then DD says he won't play again until the knee feels better.

My take on this . . is that they will IR him for the season just to make the issue go away, even if they have to eat the salary for this year, and then quietly give him an injury settlement in the offseason.

But he'll never play a down of football in the NFL again.

You're correct, CBA doesn't allow cut of an injured player without an injury settlement. Putting him on IR frees up a roster spot without cutting the player, while allowing him to "heal." In his case, healing to play again is very unlikely. With guaranteed monies, there does not seem to be advantage for placing him on IR, but it may allow time for an amicable financial parting agreement.

Kubiak and upper management was meeting with Dom and his agent right? On the surface it sounds like it may be an injury settlement type situation except for the fact that Kubiak ruled that out.
