Gibbs: Portis is a Go

New, comments

This isn't exactly hot off the presses, but AP is reporting this bit of great news today:

Gibbs was testy as he wrapped up a week of mystery over whether his star running back had recovered sufficiently from a partially left dislocated shoulder. Portis was upgraded from questionable to probable on the injury report, although Ladell Betts remains set to start.

"If I had to say, I think Ladell will start and Clinton will play a backup role in the game," Gibbs said. "That's the way I think it's going to go. I think that's what we've tried to accurately portray during the week."

Clinton Portis is also more optimistic about his recovery:

"I'm about 93.9 right now," he said. "I've still got two more days to get to 100 percent. ... At the rate things have been increasing, it looks pretty good."

With this news, I'm about 93.9% sure the Redskins will win on Monday.
