Washington Post: Redskins RB Clinton Portis sat out practice today
because of back spasms and his status for Sunday's game against
the Philadelphia Eagles was unclear. Portis experienced
discomfort when he awoke today. He briefly joined his teammates on
the field at Redskins Park before heading to the training room for
treatment. In the locker room after practice, Portis moved slowly
and struggled to bend. He has not missed a game despite the pain
of knee, hip and neck injuries, but back problems are different,
Portis said. "My back just spasmed up," he said. "I was
[sleeping], but I don't now how I slept. I woke up and just didn't
feel like moving this morning. It feels better when they
[trainers] rubbing on it, but that don't last long. As soon as
they stop, it starts back hurting." Portis was scheduled to
undergo massage therapy and consult a chiropractor today.
"Everything they can come up with, we'll just try," he said. As
for Sunday's game, "it's two days from now, we're looking forward
to it," Portis said. "If it's bad, it's bad. Hopefully, it'll be
all right."
