WP: Gibbs, Portis Stay Cautious With Running Back's Knee
Coach Joe Gibbs said that a recent MRI exam of tailback Clinton Portis's right knee showed only the previously diagnosed tendinitis, and that he could have played Saturday had the Redskins been involved in a regular season game. Portis will continue to focus on strengthening and conditioning his knee this week -- there is no set timetable for his return to full practice -- but Gibbs said he feels good about Portis's progress.
