If CP doesn't play, it will big a BIG drop off BUT even if it's just Rock and Alexander we will be okay. They are as good or better than any number of RB tandems out there.

If Alexander is our starter our def better come up big,I'd rather have Sellars start than Alexander
With you 100% htown, and I'm surprised others haven't said the same thing. Alexander is a dud and I don't think Rock can carry the game. I see a killer opportunity to mix things up w/ Sellers and Rock trading out. If the cowboys think tackling B Jacobs is a bitch what will they do against a bigger, stronger Sellers? Bottom line is this game is an absolute must win - sure Zorn doesn't want to risk injury to our star fullback to win a single game but 1) Sellers has proven very durable 2) a loss right now will put us out of the wild card spot and in the position of fighting our way back. Sellers should get some opportunities and if things seem to be working let him beat the shit out of the Dallas LB corp.

Portis needs to play to reclaim that leading rusher title! Huge blow if he can't go, but we should still be able to pull out a victory without him.

Maybe, but if Santana can't go, the double whammy on the offensive side of the ball will potentially kill us. We looked good in Detroit(I was there), but couldn't punch it in. At home vs Pittsburgh we just got our ass kicked without Santana in their as another threat. I hope Hall is ready to replace Springs or we have the potential to get torched. With Romo coming back probably, the Boys will be jacked up for what amounts to a must win for them.

Re: Clinton Portis 50/50 for the Dallas game, injury updates

This news SUCKS...I hope it is BS!
As someone else stated, its pretty simple...If Portis doesn't play, we lose.

Portis better tough it out this week at least, and Betts better get his butt fixed fast cause Alexander and Rock aint gunna get more than 50.
I hope Im wrong, but without Portis, all they have to do is double Santana.

Remember a couple years back when beating Dallas was a Cooley show?
I hope Buges mentions this to Zorn cause hes our only healthy offensive threat right now.

LANDOVER, Md. -- Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis was unable to practice Monday because of a sprained knee, and coach Jim Zorn said Portis is "50-50" for Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

NFC East blog

ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog.
Blog network: NFL Nation


Portis bruised his knee on the final play of the first quarter of last week's 23-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers but returned for the next series and finished the game. The pain got progressively worse after treatment following the game, however, and Zorn said Monday that Portis has a bone bruise on the femur as well as a sprain.
Portis is second in the league in rushing with 995 yards on 200 carries.
"He's questionable," Zorn said. "I'd say there's a 50-50 chance. I'm hoping that he'll be even better than that. Another day of rest, and then we'll see how he comes in on Wednesday. ... We've got to get the pain out of the knee and see how he progresses along." Portis' absence from a major game against a division rival would be tough to overcome. He's been the engine of the offense, and his primary backup, Ladell Betts, has missed the last three games with a more severe knee injury. Shaun Alexander, signed after Betts got hurt, has contributed little, and the other running back on the roster, Rock Cartwright, is heavily involved with special teams.
well good,I'm glad it didnt happen on that play,but I still think it was bad coaching to have CP in there trying to score a meaningless td,at that point it should have been run run run with Alexander

I don't disagree with that a bit. Especially sense the game was for all practical purposes over at that point in the 4th. And CP was already nicked up, it was useless having him out there.

Good time for your #2 & #3 backs to be getting some work IF your running the ball?

Any word on Santana or Springs? How bad are they? Rock and Alexander could do a decent job, but only if we have Moss in their.

How are people saying that Sellers should be the replacement? He can't hit the holes as quickly or slide through nearly as well. Plus can he even handle carrying the ball that many times? He's not the 265lb'er in the CFL anymore.

Re: Clinton Portis 50/50 for the Dallas game, injury updates

From the otherwise disgusting Peter King about Romo:
I think this is Romo's health status as of this morning: Talked to Romo on Saturday, while he was on his final two days off of a bye week, and he told me, naturally, that he would definitely play against Washington on Sunday night at FedEx Field. But it sounded like he'd be affected by his partially healed broken right pinky finger. The break is just below the top knuckle on his right little finger, and he'll play with a splint on it.

"It won't be all the way healed,'' he said. "It's still probably a good two or three weeks away from that. I don't know where it's exactly going to be, healing-wise, in Washington, but my timing will be fine.''

The key is whether Romo will be able to throw a hard 15-yard out. Any quarterback who can't throw a liner to the sidelines is going to be a detriment. "I had to throw one of those this week,'' he said. "I'm not going to lie to you. There was pain when I threw it. But I can take the pain. If I've done it once, I can do it again.'' Romo also told me the finger "has gotten healthy enough so I could take a hit on it.'' We'll see.

Don't worry. If CP can't go Malcolm Kelly, Devin Thomas, and Fred Davis will pick up the slack on offense.





Not.

Oh, I don't think it's impossible for them to possibly have a good game this sunday.. Well, except for Kelly obviously.. But Thomas and Davis, it might be their chance to prove themselves.. They rarely have a chance to show themselves because of the players above them.. I'm pretty sure Thomas have done well when thrown to.. He might be over aggressive w/ blocking or whatever sometime.. But how can he learn if he does not make any mistakes?
