50' to play against Tennessee Titans

50' to play against Tennessee Titans

After sitting out the Redskins' embarrassing 5928 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, running back Clinton Portis now hopes to return to the lineup for the upcoming game against the Tennessee Titans, he said in a Cheap Jerseys radio interview Tuesday.

During his weekly appearance on 106.7 The Fan's The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner, Portis, who has been sidelined since suffering a severe groin tear Oct. 3, said he wants to play in Week 11 at LP Field.

"I mean, you know, that's what I'm aiming toward," Portis said. "But it's gonna be the same, you know, going through the week and showing, you know, an improvement from the beginning of the week to the end. And that'll be able to go get back on the field. I just got to be safe."

The odds of Portis returning to the lineup against the Titans are "5050," he said. It all depends on whether Portis can "get through the week with no setbacks."

Portis experienced swelling and soreness in his groin area while practicing last week. As the week progressed, it appeared increasingly doubtful that he would return to face the Eagles.

After Portis suffered the injury in the 1712 victory against the Eagles in Week 4 at Lincoln Financial Field, Coach Mike Shanahan said the team expected Portis to be sidelined for as long as six weeks. As of Sunday, Portis has missed six weeks.

With Ryan Torain's lingering hamstring problem, the Redskins definitely could have used Portis against the Eagles. Torain practiced at full speed several days last week, Shanahan said, providing encouraging signs about his ability to contribute in the bigstage game.

After sitting out the second half of the 3725 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 8, Torain was among the Redskins' active players against the Eagles. But Torain aggravated his hamstring injury during pregame warmups, Shanahan said, and could not play.

Running back Chad Simpson was among the team's inactive players and James Davis, a promising practice squad back, was not added to the 53man active roster for the game. Rookie running back Keiland Williams, a former undrafted free agent, was the Redskins' only active back.

Williams had a big game, rushing for 89 yards (with a 5.6yard average) and two touchdowns and catching four passes for 50 yards and another touchdown. Although Williams is better than Torain at picking up Cheap Jerseys blitzes, he is not as good as Portis, and quarterback Donovan McNabb needed as much help as he could get.

Portis is among the players still on the roster who played in the New England Patriots' 527 rout of the Redskins in 2007. He gained 27 yards on 11 rushes as the Redskins were dominated from the outset in that game as well.

After the Eagles' dominant performance Monday night, many Redskins players acknowledged they were embarrassed by their performance. Portis was stunned.

"I think it was kinda shocking," Ports said. "You would never expect that, being down twentyeight to thirtyfive to nothing that quick. I think that was shocking.

"As far as the mood [of the team], everybody was embarrassed. After a fiftynine to twentyeight defeat, there's not much the coach has to say. I don't think you put that on the coach."

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was outstanding, Portis said.

"I mean, they were on point last night," Portis said of the Eagles. "Michael Vick Wholesale NFL Jerseys played like a creative player on a video game. They just had it going for them."

I like the McNabb signing. For those who think it is a bad move for a team trying to build, which is worse: (1) trading two draft picks for an aboveaveragetoverygood QB for one year OR (2) trading two draft picks for an aboveaveragetoverygood QB for several years.

Obviously, it is the latter. It allows the Skins to use their remaining draft picks on the numerous other holes rather than betting a first rounder on a QB that has more than a 50% chance of busting and will probably take years to develop even if he does succeed. The two picks for McNabb are gone. Nothing can be done about that. That comment is directly related to the old stories of being Snyders guy and getting special treatment. He needs to rise up and GET THE HECK OUT ON THE FIELD. Cmon this 5050 and I am not sure is plain BS. Go BALL and do it now because the ship is sinking Wholesale Jerseys and we need some effort here. I am really tired of this by him. So many things from the snyder/zorn regime is killing this team.
