LANDOVER, Md. -- At 5:45 p.m. ET, Redskins running back Clinton Portis took the field and went through 10 minutes of drills in front of head coach Jim Zorn and director of medicine Bubba Tyer. He then walked off the field having a conversation with Zorn. According to Ed Werder, Portis appeared to move well and didn't have any trouble running.
Werder then talked to four different Redskins players on the field. Three of them told him they didn't think Portis would play. Center Casey Rabach was the lone player holding out hope.
We should have official word at about 6:45 p.m. ET. The club's flagship radio station, ESPN 980, reported about an hour and a half ago that Portis wasn't going to play. But that was before Portis took the field to warm up. A high-ranking team official told me not to count Portis out. I'm about to run down to the field and see if I can find out more.
We'll also talk to Art Monk and Darrell Green. They both receive Pro Football Hall of Fame rings during a pre-game ceremony.
