    Domanick Davis (Williams) i looked him up to see if he was maybe backing someone up, but all i could find was this wiki article saying that he refused to return to the Texans. over 3000 yards in 3 seasons, 23 touchdowns. anyone know what happened to this guy?

    Lots of injury problems, hamstring and knee issues. In essence he retired by not going back. I'm not sure that he officially refused to return though.

    both of his knees are basically shot. If I remember right, he doesn't have any (or very little) cartilage in either knee. Gained a sh!t load of weight due to being inable to work out properly.

    thats a shame because he was a stud, he helped me win my fantasy football championship in 2004. He was a great punt returner and halfback at LSU as well.

    I wonder the same thing from time to time. I'll never forget how he shredded the Illinois defense in the 2001 Sugra bowl. One of the more underrated backs in LSU history.

    I'm pretty sure he's got the same degenerative issues that ended up forcing Terrell Davis into retirement.

    He was putting together a hell of a start to an NFL career though. It's a shame.
