Ralph's Concern about using Portis
So for the foreseeable future, Josh Portis will be No. 2 at quarterback. But coaches still said he will definitely see action under center Saturday. That makes the situation interesting because Ralph Friedgen said he has had some concern about playing his backup too much. He doesn’t want to risk injury to Portis because, if something happened to Chris Turner, Fridge could really be in some trouble.
“The one thing [Steffy’s injury] changes is he is getting more reps in practice now," Friedgen said. "He has a chance to develop and grow. It could be a blessing. It depends on Josh approaches it. He ought to see this as an opportunity to get better. Hopefully he was.
“It crossed my mind [about playing him too much as backup]. If we lose him it could put us in a bind. But right now we have to play every game to win. But that has been a concern of mine.”
Question: How much action should Portis see Saturday?
