Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it
 
"I'm not looking to see nothing. I'm looking to see how long they're [going to] leave me out there, to be honest," Portis said. "Is this [going to be] good? For who? For y'all? For the media? For the public? I guess. But what's good for [No.] 26 is rest. Rest is important. Rest is vital."

He needs some work in preseason. Not much, just some to shake the cobwebs off in a game-like environment. I would have voted very little, but that wasn't an option, so I voted yes. I concur with Portis that rest is vital for him as well.

I'm with you. I think he should play, but very limited.

Yeah didn't we try that one season and he seperated his shoulder trying to tackle somebody on an interception?

There's a saying in the acting community that you will perform as well as you rehearse.

I seem to remember Portis not getting into his stride until several games into the season. I've never been a fan of Portis' pre-season attitude. Frankly, I think he needs the work.

Ok, so the coaching staff tells him not to tackle anybody; it's only preseason. Come on, that was a fluke accident, it could have happened anywhere, anytime, to anyone. It could have happened later on in the regular season. What then? Rest him until the playoffs? He needs some work in preseason.

That was his own fault. He could have easily pushed him out of bounds, but instead he chose to go for the big hit.

Can't a brother get some rest? Is he in football shape? Is his vision tuned? How about his burst speed? If all those things aren't at 100% and he's healthy I say brother got to play. Play!

He should play a bit, and if it is a couple of snaps just to get him warmed up why not? Someone just tell him not to tackle anyone. LOL.

Gotta admit that was a nice hit though. But i think he should get the L.T. package..Maybe a few snaps the last game.

Lets just do what he says and nobody gets hurt.

...There's a saying in the rap community. "Nobuddy move, nobuddy git hurt"

I knew someone would bring that up. Like someone said earlier it was a fluke. Injuries are gonna happen, but you cant completely baby these guys just because they're a starter. He better be able to handle several carries in a preseason game or two if hes gonna be our starter for 16 (hopefully more) games this season.

With the precarious state of the offensive line right now, I want Portis and Campbell out there as little as possible this weekend

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it
 
I say no. Portis is a veteran player, and he doesn't have any cobwebs to shake off. Even if he did, you'd have to give him significant carries in the pre-season for it to make any difference. 10 plays won't do it.

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it
 
Is Portis playing also because Cartwright is hurt? What about Betts, is he well enough to play? I like Mason, but I don't think he should be playing almost an entire game if Betts and Cartwright are hurt.
