Could we have another Tit-face situation brewing?

I really doubt the team is going to come out with any news on whether or not Portis will actually play because it keeps the vikings on their toes if they think he's playing. In fact, I wouldn't really get my hopes up even if Gibbs comes out today adn tells the media something along the lines of "there's an 80% chance he plays."

I hope he does if he's ready, but I think we can beat them without him. As long as he's ready for dallas I'm happy.

Working out and actually practicing are two different things. In order for Portis to play Monday, I think we need to hear that he was "practicing" on Thursday and Friday this week. I know everyone wants a healthy Portis for the Cowboys game, but when I hear things like that, I think you start overlooking teams. I think the Vikings will give the Skins all they can handle Monday night. Anyone that does not think that is kidding themselves. Brad Johnson is a gamer and they will come in just as fired up as the Skins. If he is 90%, I want Portis on the field. I don't think Betts and Duckett can do the things Portis can. Gibbs said yesterday that not having Portis would not change their "scheme" for the game, but I think it changes the playcalling, and that hurts the Skins.

Anyone remember the last time BJ faced this defense?

9/12/04: 24 of 37 for 169 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT, sacked 4 times.

And they've only improved since and the Vikings have gotten worse in the WR department.

Re: Clinton Portis Week 1 Injury watch

I'd rather Portis, of course, but having Betts in there doesn't worry me. He ran for 118 yards the last time he faced the Vikings at FedEx two years ago. Froze my butt off that day!

Re: Clinton Portis Week 1 Injury watch

Ok, I started this thread, so I am going to somewhat hijack it for a moment. It is kind of on the same subject however. I have Portis, Warrick Dunn, Thomas Jones, and Ahman Green as my Fantasy Football RBs. I need to start 2 in Week 1, who do I start?

Re: Clinton Portis Week 1 Injury watch

I'm benching Portis for either Bush or Betts week 1 because I don't see him playing much if any.

Paul, If Portis is 50-50 by Sunday it scares me to start him, so I am like you and would probably go Dunn and Thomas, but if Portis plays, who would you pair with him, Thomas Jones @ the Packers or Dunn @ the Panthers?

Re: Clinton Portis Week 1 Injury watch

Saw this on PFT who I generally trust to be accurate with this type of information:

POSTED 8:51 p.m. EDT, September 5, 2006

PORTIS IS EXPECTED TO PLAY MONDAY NIGHT

Although Redskins running back Clinton Portis missed another practice on Tuesday due to a shoulder injury suffered on the first drive of the team's first preseason game of the season, a league source with knowledge of the situation predicts that Portis will be suited up and ready to play against the Vikings on Monday night.

On August 13, Portis had a shoulder pop out of joint and then back in while making a tackle following an interception thrown by quarterback Mark Brunell. Portis hasn't played or practiced since the injury.

Also missing practice for the Redskins on Tuesday was cornerback Shawn Springs, who had surgery on August 15 to repair a torn abdominal muscle.

Re: Clinton Portis Week 1 Injury watch

Amorentz, I hope this info is right. I think we will all know a lot more by Saturday. I think I heard on Redskins.com yesterday from Larry Michael that the Skins will take today (Wednesday 9/6/06) off as far as practice goes and then hit the field for Thursday, Friday and Saturday work. The way REDSKINS.com gives daily reports, everyone will know by Saturday if Portis has practiced or not and will play. If he is 80-90%, I have to think he will play in a nationally televised opening game. Gosh! if you love the game at all you would play.
