This isn't breaking news, we've been dealing with this constant nick or ding that causes SS to miss big chunks of most seasons for years now. Enough already.

It time for SS to go. I hope we can get a little return out of him this season before he departs, and IMO retires. The guy is done, if your a 50/50 guy you should be getting half a paycheck.
Gotta say I agree. I could understand if Springs tore something, but from what everyone's saying it seems like a tweak. I mean he could at least be rotated in and out, get that calf some work, but he sits out every game.

Portis is constantly playing through pain and though he doesn't develop the way he would if he was healthy, something is better than nothing at all.

Come on Springs, you're a football player, not a cupcake. If you're getting that banged up from season to season and you can't get it rolling, it might be time for you to hang it up. We can use that money on a player who will actually be active for more than a few weeks per season.

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

its all about the ofensive line,last i checked they were ready to rumble.if they open the holes that they did for portis,betts will be fine.he explodes straight ahead better than portis does anyway.why risk season ending injury by pushing him.we need him in the playoffs.(ask alexander what a knee injury can do if you keep pushing)

Yes he is due to the fact he's a warrior and cares about this team. Along with for starters Pete Kendall, Chris Samuels, Marcus Washington, Smoot, Los, Moss, Jason Taylor, Grif, Laron......you know pretty much the rest of our KEY PLAYERS that play though pretty serious pain/injuries! Then you have 'cupcake'/ Ms.50/50......but I guess thats a special case..?

Anyway enough of SS already.

Hope CP will be ready soon. I think he will be inactive this week for sure..? Next week after a grade 2 MCL sprain I bet he's ready to roll, which should hopefully be a week at least on paper we will need him the least!

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

my question is... is Portis playing or not? i mean...i say if hes hurtin we just gameplan for our backup RBs. it hurts bad to see em out at all at this point. but we need em down the stretch...i dont wanna see another week 1 `06 where he had some touches against the vikings (yea he had his td) but it ultimatley set em back more. we need other guys to step up in this one.

If CP can't go Betts is on per PFT.! The news is getting better by the minute. How amazing would it be to see CP be able to go and be effective..?

Still up in the air is whether Redskins running back Clinton Portis, who is listed as questionable with a knee injury, can play. Portis will test his knee in pre-game warmups and decide then whether he can play.

If Portis canít go, Ladell Betts will start at running back.

I'm not a doctor so I'm not going to pretend to know what an appropriate recovery period is for his injury, especially considering I'm not even sure of an exact diagnosis.

However I do know he needs to be medically cleared to play, and I'm assuming he's not just holding himself out. So if the team doctors are saying he's a no go, who are we to judge if he should be playing or not?

I don't disagree with your point.

But at this point I really don't care, the guy just can't stay healthy over the last several years. He's playing today and thats the great news as I stated when on the field hes a really good corner.

And we can sure us him today.

Looks like aside from Monty, we're going to be the healthiest we've been in a long time this Sunday.

This is very good news.
