seriously? I could see that happening if the doctors advise him to but otherwise I can't see him giving up his life in the limelight just yet.

Maybe he'll retire and write a tell-all book about the Redskins.

I dont know if CP is totally done but now that he's had a concussion its easier for him to get another. I think the Skins should find some way to cut their ties with CP and let some other team take their chances with him.

He's still having issues with blurred vision, that can't be good.

Sounds really serious long-term, but I don't know anything about concussions. Anyone know if blurred vision is typical this long after the incident?

My cynical side wonders if he's really having any problems or he's just in a standoff w/Zorn who's told him once he practices he can play. So, he's just sitting out.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

It's usually a short-term side effect (been through it once from a mild basketball concussion).

We need to let him take the rest of the year off and hopefully come back healthy. It was a rough year for CP.


Wonder if he'll come back with one of those ugly Riddel Revolution helmets like Cooley and Peyton Manning wear, they're supposed to help with preventing concussions.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

concussions are no joke......most people think that since they are usually not life threatening that its ok to come back from them.....but your brain never really heals from hitting itself against solid bone

everyone that has had a concussion can attest to how serious they actually are.....a few mild headaches can turn into some serious brain damage down the road

as for portis' future with washington.....well.....you know......blah blah blah something important blah blah

CP isn't that much of a moron to take it that far. He may not like to practice, but I can't see him taking it to that much of an extreme.
