Clinton Portis hopes to return for the Redskins in 12 days against the New Orleans Saints.
Appearing on 980’s The John Thompson Show, Portis said all of the MRIs and X-Rays have come back negative but he still experiences blurry vision when he moves his head quickly side to side.
Doctors are also limiting his physical activity to the stationary bike and walking.
“I’ve seen six or seven doctors but for the most part, everything is fine and checking out well,” Portis said. “I think I passed all the tests I’ve taken. … Now it’s a matter of correcting my vision and getting back on the field.”
Portis on being out of shape if he returns: “Being its midseason, I don’t think I would be out of shape that quick.”
Portis on his vision difficulties: “I could sit still and read everything you put in front of me. But when you move me and shake me around, that’s when it happens.”
