Texans S Dominique Barber was forced from Sunday's game against the Ravens with an undisclosed injury.

The reserve safety and special teamer was carted to the locker room midway through the fourth quarter. It's possible he's suffered a season-ending injury. His status should be updated at HC Gary Kubiak's Monday press conference.

Texans placed S Dominique Barber (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Barber had a knee scope Thursday after sustaining an injury in Wednesday's practice. The Texans have claimed Jason Allen off waivers to fill Barber's role as a special teamer and backup in dime packages. Barber is signed cheaply for $550,000 in 2011.

Texans S Dominique Barber is out for at least this week's game after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

It sounds like a simple scope after Barber injured the knee in Wednesday's practice. Coach Gary Kubiak calls Barber the team's most valuable special teamer this season. He's been a reserve on defense with Eugene Wilson starting at free safety.
Thu, Nov 11, 2010 02:29:00 PM

Texans FS Dominique Barber will start in place of Eugene Wilson (hamstring) on Sunday.

Barber isn't a great IDP play with Bernard Pollard gobbling up all the safety stats. Second-year prospect Troy Nolan could also get some reps while Wilson is out. It can't hurt the Texans' already scuffling secondary.
Thu, Sep 30, 2010 11:48:00 AM

Texans placed S Dominique Barber (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Barber made several spot starts in his second season, but didn't meet expectations in terms of IDP after the early-year acquisition of Bernard Pollard. Pollard almost immediately assumed the starting strong safety job and never relinquished it. Barber will compete for a backup job in 2010 camp.
Tue, Dec 29, 2009 08:59:00 PM

Texans FS Dominique Barber (hamstring) will not play against the Patriots this week.

Barber will likely land on injured reserve. John Busing will step in.
Tue, Dec 29, 2009 10:22:00 AM

Texans FS Dominique Barber left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury.

Barber is done for the day. John Busing will likely fill in the rest of the way.
Sun, Dec 27, 2009 03:17:00 PM

Dominique Barber will start at free safety for the Texans this week.

Marion's brother is coming off a six-tackle performance against the Jaguars last week. He's moved ahead of John Busing on the depth chart.
Thu, Dec 10, 2009 01:59:00 PM

Dominique Barber started the Texans' preseason opener at strong safety over Nick Ferguson.

Barber is on track to be a nice IDP sleeper behind a fairly leaky Texans front seven. Marion's brother is a big hitter with a nose for the football.
Sat, Aug 15, 2009 08:58:00 PM

Dominique Barber was promoted to the Texans' first-team defense at strong safety during Tuesday's practice.

Coach Gary Kubiak wouldn't call it permanent, but it most likely is. Incumbent Nick Ferguson lacks Barber's run-stopping and big-play ability. Ideally, the 34-year-old Ferguson will be a third safety and spot starter in case of injury.
Tue, Aug 11, 2009 04:20:00 PM

Dominique Barber has taken some reps with the first-team defense at Texans Organized Team Activities.

He's currently behind Nick Ferguson on the depth chart, but Ferguson is 34 and couldn't keep the job last year. Barber should beat him out in August.
Thu, May 28, 2009 03:48:00 PM

Dominique Barber will get the first opportunity to start at strong safety for the Texans in 2009.

Marion's brother, a sixth-round pick last year, showed promise as a hitter and on special teams. The Texans aren't bringing back incumbent C.C. Brown.
Sun, Mar 1, 2009 04:17:00 PM

Texans beat writer John McClain believes Dominique Barber will start at strong safety if the position is not addressed in free agency or early in the draft.

Starter C.C. Brown's season ended early with a broken arm, and neither he nor Nick Ferguson are expected to be re-signed this offseason. Barber, Marion's little brother, was a sixth-round pick last season.
Tue, Jan 27, 2009 09:39:00 AM

Texans signed sixth-round S Dominique Barber to a multi-year contract.

The Minnesota product is the first of the team's seven picks to sign. The younger brother of Marion, Dominique will compete to make the roster at safety, but is facing stiff competition at a packed position in Houston.
