    Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis, who did not play in the team's loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, plans to return to the lineup this week against the Houston Texans.
    "In my mind, there's not a doubt," Portis said yesterday at Redskin Park.
    Portis carried 10 times and caught two passes in the Redskins' season-opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He sat out the Dallas game, however, because of what he called a "jammed" left rotator cuff, an injury unrelated to the dislocated left shoulder he suffered Aug. 13.

    He said the same thing before the last game. If he does play he probably wont get more than 15 carries.

    No problem. Let's knock his butt out the first time he gets the ball!

    Hey..we should send o'Portis some You Tube video of Marvin Zindler.
    You know, so he can play dress up and inspect a few taquerias while in town this weekend.
    Here's hoping TJ and DeMeco knock some sence into that kid.

    I couldn't stop thinking about Jason Simmon's hit on Chris Brown a few seasons ago.....

    From a strictly Houston-perspective, I hope it starts hurting a bit more sunday morning, just enough for him to sit it out :)

    I don´t think that Portis will play a great factor in this game... he´ll carry the ball a few times and sits out rest of game... Just hit him hard and he´s out for season... Big risk for himself... What we need is a pass rush in the game and we´ll win...

    If you saw the tackel he got injured on....you don't have to hit him hard. Just hit the shoulder and it pops out. A helathy portis scares me to death. This Portis is waiting on the surgen at the end of the season. They got two guys Named T.J. and Betts. This week we find out about Demeeeco.

    Mario'll get him if he tries to run.

    One thing about Mario, when he is diciplined against the run, he can stop it. They wont run to his side too often (be ready Babin)

    They will run Portis and we won't rush the passer at all and because of it they will be able to move the ball.

    Same story different week.

    Personally, I think this is the game where Mario gets his first sack.

    Jon Jansen(RT) is the only guy I can name off their O line. That's not a good thing for them.

    If Portis is 100% we'll be lucky to hold him under a buck fifty. I haven't seen anything from our D that makes me think they're better now than they were when they gave up , what, like 200+ to Larry Johnson last year. Until the guys in the trenches step up and make plays for us we're going to lose, it's that simple.

    Portis is too fast and slippery for our secondary. If he gets past our DL and into the secondary, we're done unless he hits Duntas side

    As I said before. Portis will have a good day and therefore Brunell will get all day to throw and look like he is primed for a Super Bowl run.

    Is Cory Raymer still their C?

    Samuels should be remembered. He was taken along with LaVar Arrington #2 and #3 overall one year.
