Portis says concussion not career ending

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Clinton Portis is confident he will return from the concussion that ended his season early.

The Washington Redskins running back appeared at a charity event Tuesday and was asked about remarks he made last week, when he sounded as if he could be contemplating the end of his career.

Portis replied: "I don't think for one second this could be career ending."

Portis said his comments a week ago referred to the possible end of his career with the Redskins. Portis said he expects big changes in the offseason within a team that is currently 4-9.

Portis was injured in a helmet-to-helmet hit against Atlanta on Nov. 8 and has subsequently struggled with vision problems and dizziness. He was placed on injured reserve last week.
