ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - Clinton Portis says he still considers himself the feature running back for the Washington Redskins, despite having only one carry in the second half of last week’s game.

Portis said Thursday he doesn’t have an answer for his light workload in the Redskins’ loss to St. Louis. Ryan Torain, who was promoted from the practice squad, ended up with the same number of carries as Portis in the 30-16 defeat.

Coach Mike Shanahan has said Portis is bothered by a sore wrist, but Portis indicated the wrist is fine.

Portis has complained publicly in the past when he’s felt he was getting a raw deal. But this time, he’s not lashing out. He said his past grumblings never led to change, so there’s no need to do it.
