I think we all could've seen this coming but Clinton Portis is OK!:
"Sunday, September the 9th...FedExField...Washington Redskins-Miami Dolphins...Clinton Portis will be there," Portis told reporters after Thursday's practice at Redskins Park.
Portis has been slowed by knee tendonitis most of preseason. He sat out the club's four preseason games, so Sunday's game will be his first game action of the year. He is expected to start.
"I've been getting a lot of running in. After that, it's just a matter of recovery time."
By the way, at the bottom of the above linked Redskins.com story, you'll find (or I did, anyhow) a new chat function that allows you to discuss the story right on the official site. The internet's powers are without boundary. Read the FAQ to see if you get to play, though for some reason my name was chosen semi-arbitrarily on my behalf. I think I'm, like, Willab7104 or something. Pretty neat.
Gameday open thread will be up tomorrow because I will be out of town attending a wedding all weekend and may find difficulty reaching internet access. Who gets married on the first weekend of professional football? Know that I'll be there in spirit watching Your Washington Redskins beat someone else's Miami Dolphins from a sports bar early Sunday morning.
