Step away from the panic button, this action isn't due to any current injury. The Washington Times fills us in:
Coach Jim Zorn said running back Clinton Portis is not likely to see any action in the team's preseason opener Aug. 3 against Indianapolis. Portis didn't play in any preseason games last season because of a knee injury and separated his shoulder in 2006's first exhibition contest.
in one of the first practices of the year, Cliton Portis rolled his ankle causing many cheast pains througout Redskins fandom. Being the hardcore RB that he is returned to the field for the afternoon practice only to get blasted by H.B. Blades and Marcus Washington. Portis summoning his inner Fred Smoot ,rebounded and popped right back up.
Personally I wouldn't mind if CP didn't touch the rock at all in the preseason. Ok maybe one game but no more. No he isn't LaDainian Tomlinson who hasn't had a carry in the presason yet, buit the man knows how to play ball and doesn't need the reps in the preseason. I think one preseason game would be enough for a game-speed warm up
