    bring in Chris Brown, he wants out and it'd be good to stick it to Bud. :redtowel:

    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.

    Bring in Chris Brown.

    He probably asked for a trade because he knows we're in need of a back.

    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.

    Eased into practice, he should be up-and-running by now! I guess we'll all know in less than a week, keep them fingers crossed! :)

    I hope he is well and will make the season opener..Davis is nice but he needs to stay healthy...with this zone offense, he is subject to gain 1500+ yards..

    I don't think we will miss DD much to be honest...

    I just think that we will find another back that is capable of being a quality starter...i don't think DD is the kinda guy you miss...He is the kinda guy you say "oh well" about, and move on...

    Well If history holds true...Denver doesn't seem to place high value on the running back position...And IMO, DD is Good...not Great...The Texans don't have any "Great" players...IMO...at least not yet...

    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.
