Second-half adjustment pays for Portis
Question of the Day
“I got word he was throwing up and very sick,” Zorn said. “They took him to the hospital this morning and tried to get his stomach calmed down, but every time he tried to jog, he would throw up again. We had to shut him down.”
Rookie Chris Horton started in Doughty’s place and had two interceptions and a fumble recovery.
Meanwhile, two of Horton’s fellow rookies made their debuts.
A week after fellow second-round pick Devin Thomas made his first NFL catch, receiver Malcolm Kelly and tight end Fred Davis made their pro debuts. Each had a catch for 6 yards.
Bush contained … almost
Saints running back Reggie Bush again was a nonfactor against the Redskins in the running game, accounting for only 28 yards on 10 carries. But he nearly made up for it by making seven catches for 63 yards and taking a punt return 55 yards for a touchdown.
“Most of the day, he was running sideways,” Zorn said. “We kept him at bay a lot of the game even though he got some yards.”
Thirty-seven of Bush’s 91 offensive yards came on the final drive of the first half.
First start for Blades
Second-year linebacker H.B. Blades made his first career start for the Redskins and was part of a defense that held the Saints to 55 rushing yards and an average of 2.9.
Blades, a sixth-round pick out of Pittsburgh in 2007, got the word in midweek that he would replace Marcus Washington, who was nursing a sore hamstring.
“I knew it was a possibility with his hamstring,” said Blades, who was credited with six tackles, four unassisted. “Being a fourth linebacker is kind of rough. You never know when you’re gonna get called in for what position. You’ve got to be ready.”
