Campbell participated in the Redskins' walk-through portion of practice on Tuesday, but he returned to the team's facility for continued treatment a short time later.
Where Campbell's situation has become less certain over the past week, Clinton Portis' has become moreso:
Portis continues to rest and rehab his knee tendonitis.
"We're getting closer," Joe Gibbs said. "He took a little bit of straight-line work out there [on Tuesday]. It's something that we're taking time with. It's not something we like, but it's where we are."
NOTE: I am not calling anyone on our team a liar. But if Jerome Bettis is willing to lie to a coaching staff about an injury to keep his job, it would hardly surprise me if one of our own players talked his way out of the field rather than genuinely pained his way off of it. And I'm not even being judgmental here: It may or may not be better for Clinton Portis to remain off the field in this situation. I am making no value judgment on that one way or the other, for the moment at least.
By the way, our run game thus far this preseason has been absolutely dismal. To wit: 120 yards on 49 rushes for 2.4 yards per carry. Only the Eagles have been worse.
