After sitting out the Redskins' embarrassing 59-28 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, running back Clinton Portis now hopes to return to the lineup for the upcoming game against the Tennessee Titans, he said in a radio interview Tuesday.
During his weekly appearance on 106.7 The Fan's The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner, Portis, who has been sidelined since suffering a severe groin tear Oct. 3, said he wants to play in Week 11 at LP Field.
"I mean, you know, that's what I'm aiming toward," Portis said. "But it's gonna be the same, you know, going through the week and showing, you know, an improvement from the beginning of the week to the end. And that'll be able to go get back on the field. I just got to be safe."
The odds of Portis returning to the lineup against the Titans are "50-50," he said. It all depends on whether Portis can "get through the week with no setbacks."
