Week 1 - Portis Speaks (Vol 2)

This is straight from Washington Post Redskins Beat Writer Jason LaCanfora's Blog, posted 10 minutes ago after the Skins ended today's practice:

Portis Speaks


Portis said he's about 75 percent, would not be ready to play if he had to today and sounds very skeptical about being ready for Monday. he kept talking about the long-term and not doing anything to hurt himself for the long haul by rushing back.


He said he's 75 percent right now, and does not want to come back until he's 100 percent.


When he comes back he wants to be himself, a 25-carry back, and with so much time off and so few hits under his belt, that's not him right now. Said it would probably take at least two tough practices for him to be ready to play, and, unless he was doing some serious bluffing, I'd say don't start him on your fantasy teams and prepare to see a lot fo Ladell Betts Monday night.


Gibbs says Portis is still day-to-day and it will be the player's decision to play or not. Barring a complete turnaround in the next 48 hours, I wouldn't plan on him for the opener.
