Clinton Portis said he’s playing on Sunday at Seattle, but coach Jim Zorn said he won’t know that until the NFL’s No. 2 rusher warms up before the Washington Redskins’ game at Qwest Field against the Seahawks.
Portis, who didn’t go the go-ahead to play last week against Dallas until he proved his readiness in pregame warumps, said today, “I’m playing,” but Zorn isn’t so sure.
“Clinton is game-time because he’s really not full speed,” Zorn said. “I’m hoping to see the same thing I saw [last week], but I don’t know. I thought he’d be more involved today, but it is sore. It is cold. It is windy. And it’s hard to get loose.”
Offensive tackle Chris Samuels (knee) and receiver Antwaan Randle El (ankle) returned to practice on Friday and will start on Sunday. Reserve defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery (Achilles’) is progressing but will be a game-time decision.
