Redskins growing thin in offensive, defensive backfields
For the second straight day, running back Ryan Torain missed practice because of a lingering hamstring injury, and nine-year veteran Clinton Portis practiced "and looked a little bit better," Coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday.
But Portis, sidelined since suffering a severe groin tear in Week 4, said whether he plays Sunday at LP Field would be "another close call."
Shanahan said he was not yet ready to determine whether cornerback Carlos Rogers, who sat out practice because of a hamstring problem, and safety LaRon Landry, who is suffering from an Achilles injury, would play.
"We'll check 'em out tomorrow," Shanahan said. "We just don't know how a guy recovers. We'll get a chance to work 'em tomorrow. They'll have to feel a lot better to play."
