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

This would be a huge blow to the team if CP can't go. I hope he improves as the weeks continues.

Zorn: Portis 50-50 for Sunday

Clinton Portis is questionable at this point and his chances of facing Dallas on Sunday are "50-50," Coach Jim Zorn said after practice today. Portis has a knee sprain that has worsened since the team last played Nov. 3.
Zorn remains optimistic that Portis will play, but conceded that "it would be a major issue for all of us," if he cannot. Zorn said that second-string back Ladell Betts may be back from his knee injury for Sunday's game, but that he is not "expecting" that result.

Practice: Moss, Springs, Betts, Others in Skicaps

From Jason La Canfora:

Practice has begun and Clinton Portis is not on the field. Santana Moss, Marcus Washington, Shawn Springs, Anthony Montgomery and Ladell Betts are wearing skicaps, not helmets, and are limited at best. In fact, Montrgoemery isn't even in pads. We do not see Todd Collins, either.

Malcolm Kelly and Jason Taylor are in full equipment.

Jim Zorn will give an update after practice.

We've still got a week and lot's of possibilities. LB and CP are questionable, time for SA and RC to earn their keep.

The one thing that scares me is CP's pass blocking. I don't think we can duplicate that w/ any of our backs. We need him in there.

Oh no. I didn't even know CP sprained his knee against Pitt. It's still Monday though. If all these guys aren't practicing on Thursday I'll be a lot more concerned.

CP is an extremely tough dude. Clinton will play this Sunday.

I have a friend who is a personal trainer and has his Master's in physiology and kinesiology. He works part-time with Redskins- primarliy in the weight room on Monday/Tuesday lifting sessions. I'll see him later tonight. If I can get any inside info on Clinton's knee, I'll post it here.

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

Wow....I remember that one play where he looked like he got hurt. But he came back the next series and appeared to be ok. Guess not.
Shit....well....hope Alexander is ready to pound away?

It's not the end of the world if Portis can't go. Pittsburgh beat us with their back-up QB, two starters out on their o-line and a banged up Willie Parker. Everyone has injuries and that's why we have Betts, Rock and Alexander.

I'm not so sure Betts is going to be ready. Huge drop off to Alexander and Rock if you have to go with #3 RB's.

If in fact CP is a no go this weekend, there is just no way that betts can just come in after being out for a Month and pick up were CP left off. I don't think its impossible to win without CP. IF we were without Santana than I would say we would have no chance.

We'll be cool. Rock and Alexander are just guys, but we should have a passing gameplan anyway, considering the strength of their front seven and the weakness of their secondary. (seriously)
Rock and Alexander can carry the rock, if one of them gets knicked then I guess Sellers would love to show us he can play HB. Soon betts will be back.

To early in the week to say who's in or who's out.
