Redskins RB Portis leaves game with hand injury

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis broke his right hand in the first half of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Portis, who rushed for 25 yards on six carries, left late in the first quarter of Philadelphia's 27-3 victory over Washington and did not return. Portis entered with 498 yards rushing and seven touchdowns in seven games.

"I haven't talked to him yet, but it's something that might have to have some screws," coach Joe Gibbs said.

Portis partially dislocated his left shoulder in the preseason opener and has been bothered by other nagging injuries this season.
