    C. Portis out for a while

    Ryan O'Halloran, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis (shoulder) may not miss the rest of the preseason, but head coach Joe Gibbs said, "It's going to be a while before he'll play." X-rays were negative but an MRI revealed a shoulder subluxation, a temporary and partial separation caused when the ball of the upper arm slips out of the socket. "Let's get rid of some of these preseason games," said Portis. Redskins' director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said it will be a couple days before the team knows how long Portis will be out. Portis remained disappointed. "But even if it's not serious, to be nicked going into Week 1, how often do you think defensive coordinators are going to blitz me?" he said.

    Luckily, I just drafted Portis #4 in my FF league on Saturday morning.

    YES!

    So you took everyone's advice, eh?


    I saw the first quarter of that game.. That was a monster hit Portis laid out, no wonder he did himself in. His comments afterwards have been less than flattering, saying he should never have played and is now criticising the whole idea of pre-season. Can't say I blame him if he gets injured as a result and misses games that count.

    As long as he's out for the Sept. 11th game against us, that's all I care about.

    I didn't see the hit, but I heard it was monstrous.
    I took my own advice and drafted Portis - and I'm not regretting it quite yet.

    nice tackle, i must say.

    i had a fantasy draft before the game and was in the #5 spot. I took barber over him. good move.
