Washington Post - [Full Article]

Ladell Betts has a torn MCL and Chad Rinehart has a broken fibula, according to Coach Jim Zorn. Betts will have an MRI tomorrow.

"It is bleak," Zorn said. "Being 3-7 is bleak." Said secondary coach Jerry Gray: "I think if you hold any team in the NFL to seven, you should win the game."

Zorn added that Clinton Portis will be out next week, although he's not yet a candidate for the injured-reserve list, Rick Maese reported via Twitter. Offensive coordinator Sherman Smith said that the team will need to pick up a running back for next week and he mentioned Marcus Mason as a possibility. He's available and familiar with the Redskins' offense.
