Clinton Portis Put on Injured Reserved; Other News

UpdateRedskins signed RB Andre Brown to their active roster, acc to a league source with knowledge of the situation. (Andre has bounced around every team in the NFL this past year it has seemed. He was originally drafted out of NC State by the Giants.

Some of the latest news out of Redskins Park...

JReidPost Just confirmed that Clinton Portis has been put on season-ending injured reserve.

It's hard to imagine Portis taking another snap for the Burgundy & Gold. I'll do a proper farewell once more news becomes available.

john_keim Casey Rabach says he is ready to play. Wants to try. Hicks said he is optimistic about playing Sunday.    

FB Darrel Young: "Look for Terrence Austin to become a significant part of the offense this year."

Brett Favre's first NFL pass was an INT, for a TD, against the Redskins.

There is a lot of news to digest here. Portis' confirmed move to IR likely is the end of an era. Ken had been pushing the case HARD for Portis to make the Hall of Fame, but with this news, that chance is likely gone. Rabach with a sprained knee makes me nervous. I expect Will Montgomery to be inserted in Center at some point at the Vikings game regardless. The news Terrence Austin is excelling to an active roster spot can't happen soon enough. He showed excellent hands in pre-season. By all common logic, he cannot be any worse than Galloway.
