Clinton Portis says he's unlikely to play Sunday

Updated: 11:29 a.m.

Running back Clinton Portis does not expect to play against the Green Bay Packers because of a groin injury but hopes to return to the Redskins' lineup soon, he said in a radio interview Tuesday.

During his weekly appearance on 106.7 The Fan's The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner, Portis said he had not yet received results of an MRI exam of his groin, which he injured in the Redskins' 17-12 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

Despite repeatedly leaving the game because of the injury, Portis was effective against the Eagles, rushing for 55 yards (with a 5.0-yard average) and catching two passes for 26 yards. While addressing reporters Monday afternoon, Coach Mike Shanahan said that the Redskins "should find something out within the next couple of hours, one way or the other. The MRI will come in and we'll see what happens."

Asked whether he had received the MRI results, however, Portis said he was still "waiting for 'em to come in. I'm waiting to hear back from the doctors now. I did the MRI. Just waiting to hear back from the doctors."

But Portis said he expects to be sidelined for the Week 5 matchup against the Packers at FedEx Field. "I don't think so," he said of playing against the Packers. "I don't think the team would even let me attempt to go and try to play on Sunday."

Portis said this is the first groin injury he has suffered in his career, and he quickly dismissed speculation he could be sidelined for several weeks. "It's bothering me," Portis said. "It's stiff and moving and rolling around; hurt. ... I'll take my time to make sure I'm healed and I'll try to get back out and help my teammates."


A week after Portis stirred criticism for going down without being touched on a 27-yard run against the St. Louis Rams, he was widely praised, including by Shanahan, for running hard against the Eagles.

"I don't worry about my toughness, man," Portis said. "I stand in the hole, week in, week out. D lineman, linebackers, secondary blitzers, or anybody else that's coming through there, and [I] put my head up in there. So I wasn't worried about my toughness."

Young back Ryan Torain, who finished a game-high 70 yards, did an outstanding job, Portis said. "We just fed off one another," he said. "He ran over a safety in the hole. ... He lowered the boom to him. Once you get going, I think the team feed off of that. When Ryan scored that touchdown and made that play, I think that ignited our team."

In his Monday meeting with the media, Coach Mike Shanahan said little about Portis's injury, but in an interview later that day with Comcast SportsNet, he expressed his worries.

"Any time he goes out like he did and puts street clothes on during a game, I'm concerned," Shanahan said. "I know him. I've been around him too long. He's going to play hurt. Hopefully, the MRI is not as bad as I think it might be. Just have to keep our fingers crossed."

Portis had an MRI Monday. But Shanahan he seemed to know on Sunday that something was wrong.

"Usually a guy like that doesn't go out of the game," said Shanahan, who also coached Portis in Denver in 2002-03. "He stays in as long as he can."

We'll have more soon.

Okay, so what did the MRI show? This is not news. If you go out for a groin pull you are going to be sore. What I want to know is if he tore it and if so, how bad.

"You wouldn't want to get a healthy Portis to at least block on 3rd down? You're nuts"

What's nutty is depending on a 7 million dolla a year running back to block.

Mike Sellars can pass block.

Double tight end sets are what i being used to assist our tackles.

We expected a healthy Portis in place to get yards inthe run game.

Yes: he is a quality blocker.

But with the running game down so far, we need him healthy.

And that doesn't seem to be the case for the second year in a row.

Look: I'd love for Clinton Portis to be in place for a 1300-1500 rush year.

But if he's 'dinged'--again--it's time to move on from what he delivers as a player.

It happens all the time in the NFL.

And eventually, it'll happen here.

What does a russian space station have to do with CP's groin?

Posted by: PlayAction | October 5, 2010 10:57 AM | Report abuse

"Before getting injured and missing the last two games of the 2009 season, he was starting to develop and bring his game to the next level. He is a tall receiver with excellent size and strength. He is a long strider who can get vertical because of that, but does not have explosive speed. He is a guy who needs to continue to improve as a route runner if he is going to be able to consistently separate at this level. He is not special after the catch and does not make a lot of yards after the reception. He is good red zone target because of his size. He is still developing and still has very good upside."


This is from Scouts Inc. before the season kicked off. He hasn't seen the field yet at WR save for 2-3 plays. Skins should not give up on this guy. In limited action in the preseason he had a nice 44 yard TD from Grossman, granted against backups, but I didn't see Roydell Williams or Galloway making many explosive plays. Develop the talent you have instead of trading it away for 50 cents on the dollar.

Will a 6th rounder in next year's draft have the same impact he's having on teams right now? BA didn't do too much with this past years late round picks. Doesn't mean he won't going forward, but maybe 3 guys from this past draft are on the team next year.

A couple of random observations:

1. From Petey King of SI:

"Trading for McNabb, I believe, caused the Redskins to not deal for a receiver they very much need. The Redskins had a bare-bones draft last April, with only two picks in the top 170. Their second-, third- and fifth- had been dealt away or used (as in supplemental pick Jeremy Jarmon in the 2009 summer draft), and they weren't going to dump their second-rounder in 2011 and be left with one pick in the first 130 choices next April. Talking to sources in the organization, I learned that the 'Skins want to get away from the quick-fix mentality and start building for the long haul."

Building for the long haul - sounds good to me. Plus what's the deal with this cat Jarmon? Haven't heard diddly about the dude.

2. How big an ass is Troy Barkman? He bad-mouths the officials for what happened at the end of the half in the Eagles game and Andy Reid freely admitted after the game that he had forked up, it was his bad. And Barkman belittled what AH was doing on the field when it were apparent to everyone that Haynie were a force in the game, getting two holding calls, batting down a pass and tackling a dude for a loss.

Seriously, the Redskins need to put Moss in motion and do other things to move him around because defenses are starting to gang up on him. I'm thinking the Redskins could use that to their advantage if they make a few adjustments.

Buchanon is the guy who there should be "no more room" for on the Skins roster.

He's been terrible on both punt returns and as a #3 CB.

Here's his stats through four games: one punt return for 1yd; with 3 fair catches and a fumble. Nine tackles and 3 passes defended. Who know how many TDs given up, but the end of regulation during the Houston game comes to mind.

Hard to imagine Barnes or Westbrook would do any worse as a #3 CB...

Besides -- the Skins have to make a roster move to sign another RB -- and I hope they do not try to send Banks down again...

I know it was last year and it was only one game. But you'd think if Devin could get 7 catches in one game the dude could get 24 in a season. I mean, he had 25 catches last season, that's one more than what Ro-Ro and Jo-Jo are on pace for.

There is no need to shop Devin Thomas, if they're still hanging on to Malcolm Kelly.

If it's work ethic, what about Thomas' worth ethic seems suspect? Or is that some sugar coding for "he's just not that bright"?

I noticed they put Cooley in the backfield a few times against Philly. I think having Cooley back there full time would be a waste but I like his hands out of the backfield and it gives them another excuse to have Davis and Cooley on the field at the same time.

Should we be completely sold on Davis this year? He's not made the most of his opportunities. He could have caught that ball Sunday and he has dropped a few others... Paulsen isn't anywhere near as fast as Cooley or Davis, but he is the best blocking tight end they have and is the taller receiver. They should be able to occasionally sneak him out into the flat on short yardage and goal line situations...

Sure he's on his last lap or 2, but he can still play sparingly and shows flashes..Unless you're a total freakin' robot, you have no sentiment for the back who may be the highest yardage back in Redskin history..Now, go get some moe bonghit..

Interesting to see the Dude out there again giving his own injury reports.

Would've hoped that practice would have stopped under new Coach Shanahan -- who seems to have reserved unto himself the right to fill out team injury reports -- at least for the rest of the team.

And especially knowing how frequently Clinton would contradict earlier coaching staff pronouncements on such matters.

All mind games, true... but then again, there are rules for Clinton, and then there are rules for the other 52.

haynesworth said he played better sunday b/c he played more. Shanny said Albert got to play more because he was playing well. Coaches do this type of thing all the time to guys they don't like. You can call Armstrong's number on the same play twice in the red zone vs. the Cowgirls, as if he's shown you anything in the NFL. You can cut Brandon Banks, and a week later call his number twice in the red zone on gimmick plays. But you can't give DT a coupla snaps at WR over Roydell and Joey. it's obvious that Shanny just doesn't want to deal with DT. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I can't wait to see DT succeed on somebody else's roster. Just like B Lloyd never really got a shot under the Gibbs regime and is now one of the tops in the league;Devin Thomas (if traded) will come back to haunt the Redskins.

After his falling down act in the StL game I guess he do have an injury although I missed seeing the drama behind it like I saw with the Vickowich that DH and KM made at the goal line which was shown over and over by the network. BTW, do you think somebody reamed out the OL guy who got called for holding and nullified the sacrifice the Vick made on the play to set up a TD? On the other hand, when they replayed the incident it did look like a borderline call, didn't it?

ElIdiot has officially reached ITA status...

O_e, you have to practice to play. If you suck in practice, it's not an unrealistic assumption that you'll suck in the game. So if Galloway and Williams handle business in practice, they get to be on the field. If they're not that good and they're outworking/outplaying DT, I don't know what makes you think that just throwing DT out there all willy-nilly is gonna magically heal all that ails the offense.

I mean, if you have an orchestra and have a need in the horn section would you just throw in a guy that doesn't know a G-note from a G-string? I don't think so.

Technically speaking, Joey Galloway is still on pace to beat out the production of both of Devin Thomas' season totals. And it's not like Devin Thomas was stashed on the bench his first two seasons.

I'd like to see Thomas out there in the offensive lineup, but it's far from a given that he should be provided the opportunity.

I do think, however, that Roydell Williams should be just about done. Galloway has a useful role, Williams just looks like a wasted body out there.

all those guys were released after several seasons of being either the no.1 or 2 receiver in offenses that were much more pass happy than the offenses DT has played in before this season. All of the guys you named had chances to prove themselves on the field in game situations and were released after they turned out poorly. I don't see Westbrook or Gardner (2 first round top 15 pick busts). I see a guy more like Hakeem Nicks or Mario Manningham of the giants. DT is a big,physical receiver, who can make plays after the catch. I dunno if he falls down on his own in the open field like armstrong did sunday either. DT has shown above decent balance and body control with or without contact.

And comparing DT to Banks is laughable...folks up here are aggitating to have DT start and play a prominent role. Banks is a guy they throw in on gimmicky plays to keep a defense off-balance. A two or three play package for a speed guy isn't the same as relying on a guy who can't run routes or block without holding to go out and start games for you at WR.

Look, I wish the DT panned out too. But if a guy who knows a thing or two about offense and what works at WR says DT can't play I'm trusting him on that, especially since this isn't the first coach to hold that opinion.

There is more to it, Red. Go back to the previous thread and read the stuff that Kiam posted. "It isn't personal. Shanahan doesn't think he can play."

There's plenty of tape on this guy from last year -- he started 10 games and didn't do much except for the NO game when NO couldn't field a defensive backfield. Shanahan's given him plenty of chances in practice and in preseason. And, odds are Kyle Shanahan and Keenan McCardell aren't impressed either or they'd convince Shanahan to put him in for a few plays.

The only ones who think he can play are the ones that haven't seen him.

I think both players would benefit from the change in scenery. Still, I don't think DT will get traded, but I do think the Redskins need get a little more depth at running back. I thought Simpson was going to be getting his shot, but I think the likely scenario is he pulls kick returning duties when DT either gets traded or cut. A lot depends on what they find out about Portis' status today.

That's the problem a lot of folks run into with DT...they look at him as a physical specimen and fall in love with his tangibles. Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than a great body, great 40 time, and great athleticism to effectively play WR in the NFL. Those things factor in, but the most important thing is knowing where you are and where you're supposed to be on the field. Running crisp, accurate routes. Knowing the soft spot in the zone. Knowing the defender lined up across from you and his tendencies. Knowing how to get separation. Hundreds of guys come into the league with physical prowess similar to DT's and fail miserably because they can't effectively do the things that I just listed.

We don't know if he can or can't do those things. The only way you know is if you see him practice. None of us up here can say that we've seen him do any of those things, so I'm relying on the opinion of the guy who does.

In games last year, he had moments but that was just the problem--they were only moments. He's gotta do it consistently to earn a starting job. Nobody can argue that to date, the only thing he's done consistently is frustrate us all with his ratio of production-to-potential...

Would really like to hear the "tell all" story on Devin Thomas once he's traded or released. Not buying the one documented occurrence of his falling to sleep in a team meeting as a reason he can't get on the field.


Hell I'd like to hear form Reid's un-named source on this one. Kyle Shanahan talks to the media about different players, I've never heard him or McCardell mention Devin Thomas. Then there was the time Shanahan said that due to his performance on Special Teams that Thomas "helped his chances" only to see nothing from him on offense.

Not playing the conspiracy theory role, but there is major underlining as to why Devin Thomas isn't starting. If it's his inability to grasp the playbook, then come out and just something along the line of 'he just doesn't get it or understand' enough with the pussyfooting regarding the situation.

"We keep on talking about this each week," the coach said. "You've asked me this the last two weeks and I’ll answer the third week the same way. The thing he has to do is be better than the guys in of him, and when he is, he’ll get more playing time."

We could also stop picking wide receivers made of drywall, glass, and cling-free dryer sheets.

Anything we can do to find a 2nd wideout.

Really? So 100 yards/2 TDs against the Super Bowl champs...can't play in the league?

lmg, could you list all of his games, including this year ?

Hessone, my point was not that DT is a stud, will be a stud, is even good right now. Beep said he "cannot play in this league". I grant you, one game does not a proven quantity make. But it shows he can play in this league at a high level. That's all I was saying. I'm as disappointed as the next guy in #11.

Like the talk about Chris Ogbanayya (ex Longhorn) an dpleeze dont even bring no hands/fumble waitin to happen Slaton into any conversation. Chris O was good at pickin up blitzes and as a 3rd down back for Mack Brown. Since I'm down here in Austin, also got to see him at many camps for kids and his attitude is exemplary. Would be nice addtion........IMO

HTTR and quit hatin on CRogers.....he does his job, just can't catch.

As I recall, Beep was saying last week that Banks would be on the inactive and that he couldn't play in the league either. Anyone with open eyes and an open mind can see the athletic talent is there. The problem is DT has the maturity of a high school boy, apparently.

I never thought of Joe Horn as a mentor (he always seemed more selfish like TO), but if he can get R. White to "see the light" maybe the Skins could hire him and stick him in DT's back pocket.

Shelve or trade CP. He's done.
All he does now is complain or criticize.
Or limp around and throw pity parties.
It's a tired act.

Cut bait and move on.
