Clinton Portis and Mike Sellers went to the 2008 Pro Bowl as a backfield tandem, but WRC-4 reported that they got into a heated argument this week at Redskin Park about the latter’s blocking for the former, one that required teammates separating them.
The Redskins declined to allow Portis and Sellers to talk to reporters on Friday and coach Jim Zorn said the incident was blown out of proportion.
“This is just how a team goes,” Zorn said, not very convincingly. “There’s no fisticuffs. There’s no pushing and shoving. I don’t really know what the discussion was [about]. These guys are like brothers. They care about each other.”
