Portis Likely Out This Weekend Against Dallas

Clinton Portis’ sprained knee showed no improvement Thursday, and the Washington Redskins running back appears unlikely to play in Sunday night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. redskins_logo_small

The NFL’s second-leading rusher left Redskins Park during practice, walking gingerly in a gray hooded sweatshirt and burgundy sweatpants to his Maserati.

Portis sprained his left knee in the 23-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers before last week’s bye.

With Portis hurt, Ladell Betts appears set to start Sunday. Betts has missed the last three games with a sprained knee, but he was on the field in steady rain for Thursday’s practice.  Shaun Alexander would start if both Portis and Betts are unable to play.
