Portis hits the shelf for 4-6 weeks

Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis is expected to miss the next four to six weeks with what is being called a third degree separation of his left groin. According to reports, the muscle is actually separated off the bone, but will not require surgery.

While the timetable for Portis’ return is currently listed as four to six weeks, don’t be surprised if this injury shuts him down for the season. Remember that in 2009, Portis suffered a concussion in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons and never returned to action.

Portis owners can feel free to drop the veteran running back from their rosters if they can find a player worth adding at this point in the week.

In addition, Redskins backup running back Ryan Torain (25-116-1) has now become one of the hottest properties on the market. If you have an opportunity to snag Torain, we highly recommend you pull the trigger.
