Agree 100%. Portis is not the same guy from yesteryear that people remember. He's had piles of injuries that have left him worn out, fragile, and jaded to the game, to the point where he voluntarily slides down or takes a knee so that he doesnt have to take the hit.

He may only be 29, but Portis is way past his prime due to the serious amount of injuries he's had to endure, and the fact that Joe Gibbs basically ran him into the ground.

He is a definate asset to pass protection blocking. That is is only value for this team in 2010. His speed is gone, he is not an every down back anymore, and now, he is injury prone.

I would think if they want to keep him healthy for the remainder of the season, he takes a minimal role, and is used situationally.

That's true...guy did have decent production. Still glad that CP is back though, doesn't hurt to have more than your 3rd string RB active for a game.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Now that the game is over, was anyone surprised that Portis was injured AGAIN?? I mean seriously, CP. Nothing but respect to you dude but it's over. I appreciate the effort in trying to come back, we all do, but i think the writing is on the wall here in DC. Liked what i saw from Williams today..

It was too soon for him to come back. Seriously, the muscle was torn from the freaking bone.

Hopefully it's nothing major. CP was really playing well today.

For the few plays he was in he did look good. I think that was mostly because he was rested. CP is even more injury prone now than he was before, this has to be has last round-up with the Skins.

Definitely looked good...we missed his field presence and he ran very well.


But news looks bad:

Redskins Insider - Clinton Portis played despite lingering groin injury

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Good news on CP. Hard to question the guy this year, he could easily coast and sit back and collect his guaranteed $$ but he's not.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

I'll take CP on any of my teams any day. He went down in the Rams game because his arm was injured and he knew 5 players were closing in and he did not want to fumble, that's called field awareness. Also IMO best pass blocking RB ever!

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

It truly is sad, because I don't see him on the roster next season.

Which means he was soooo close to Riggins Redskins rushing record and just falls a little short.

Isnt it funny the "Shanny effect" has had on CP...he not saying anything stupid, giving 110%, participated in preseason, mentor to the younger players....its really been a 180.

Nothing funny about it. He's in his last year here. He needs to do something to give the redskins a reason to resign him. I dont think that its' not 100% genuine, but Portis, for all his faults, is no dummy, and he knows his normal behavior won't fly in a contract year.

Good point. Portis got a hard look at two washed up RBs in the offseason that showed him how irrelevant you can become when you don't play at the same level as before (Parker) and when your mouth gets you in trouble (LJ).
