Davis has legally changed his name to "Domanick Williams," assuming his mother's maiden name. Davis has also shaved off his braids and changed his uniform number from 37 to 31, according to the Associated Press.

Davis stated that "I'm coming back as a new person altogether," while also telling reporters that his injured knee is "close" to 100 percent. It remains to be seen, however, if these changes can equal on-field success.
Coach Gary Kubiak announced Saturday that Davis (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, the Texans' official site reports.

Cross him off your cheat sheets immediately. Wali Lundy now sits atop the team's RB depth chart followed by Vernand Morency and Chris Taylor. Expect the team's decision to pass on Reggie Bush to come under even more fire than it has already.
Davis (knee) is expected to be placed on the injured reserve list Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

If you've drafted Davis in a league, hopefully you've prepared for this and have a plan in place. Without Davis, the Texans will go with second-year pro Vernand Morency and rookies Wali Lundy and Chris Taylor. Lundy will likely start the opener next week against the Eagles, but he and Morency will share the running duties.
Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said the Texans do not plan on cutting Davis (knee), the Texans' official site reports. "The idea of cutting Domanick has not even played a factor. I donít know where that came from," said Kubiak. "The decision is strictly if his knee is going to be healthy enough to play. If his knee is not healthy enough to play, if that is the decision thatís made about him, then heís looking at an I.R. (injury reserve) season. If he is going to be able to make it back, then he is going to be on this football team."

At this point, there's no way Davis will be ready to start the season, so look for Wali Lundy and Vernand Morency to split the running duties.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Domanick Williams.

2006

Davis was placed on injured reserve in Sept. 2006. Davis dodged a huge bullet when the Texans elected to pass on Reggie Bush in the 2006 draft. His three seasons in Houston have been something of a mixed bag, but heading into the draft Davis seemed like exactly the kind of solid, but limited, player NFL clubs have no qualms about pushing to the side when an opportunity to upgrade presents itself. With Mario Williams on the roster instead of Bush, however and Davis out for the year, the decision will come under more scrutiny. A short runner with bulk (5-9, 220) and a low center of gravity, Davis has the power to move the pile, but enough quickness to avoid it when he spots a hole. After missing a few games in two previous seasons, Davis missed five in 2005 with a knee injury that required minor offseason surgery. His performance inside the 20 also slipped; after being something of a red-zone demon with 13 scores (in 67 touches) in 2004, Davis saw far fewer opportunities last year, as the team tried to keep him fresh, and did less with those opportunities (4-for-26). When healthy, Davis is a threat in the passing game, and four of his six TDs in 2005 came through the air.

2005

After battling a sprained ankle and a bruised thigh early in the year, Davis came on strong over the last nine games of the season, rushing for 891 yards and 10 touchdowns, while catching 43 passes for 346 yards. Prorate those numbers over a full season Ė 1,544 yards, 18 TDs, 76 catches Ė and youíre looking at Marshall Faulk in his prime. Oddly enough, Davisí big surge almost exactly coincided with quarterback David Carrís second-half collapse, and the Texans went 3-6 over that stretch (after a 4-3 start). So itís unclear whether Davisí individual success will persuade coach Dom Capers to use him to the same extent in 2005. At 5-9, 221, Davis is short, but heís not small, so weíre not as concerned as some about his ability to shoulder a full load. Davis has good shiftiness, gets up to speed quickly and gets outside the tackles, but he has just slightly above-average speed in the open field. Davis is an excellent route runner with solid hands, and as a result, finished second in the NFL among backs in receptions (68) and receiving yards (588). Davis also performed respectably around the goal line, converting 8-of-19 runs from inside the five for scores (42 percent).

2004

Davis is an exciting player on an offense that seems poised for a 2003-Bengals-like breakout. More shifty than fast, Davis is considered by many to be a situational back. But 216 pounds seems like more than enough bulk for a 5-9 frame. The stamina question is legitimate, however, as Davis peaked up until his 10th carry and then steadily declined in terms of yards per rush afterward (averaging under 3.5 after his 10th attempt). Davisí upside is considerable, as he couples his rushing skills with Thurman Thomas-type ability as a receiving threat. He does have a lot to prove as a goal-line runner (just 5-for-18 scoring inside the 10 last year). Davis and the Texans ranked 16th in converting all short-yardage runs. So Davis owners have to be wary of the risk heíll be taken out in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

2003

Davis will see little action out of the backfield, listed fourth on the depth chart. Any value from the fourth-round draft pick will come as a return man.
