Eagles Vs. Redskins: Clinton Portis Among Early Inactives For Washington

We still have eight hours to go before gamtime, but it doesn't look like Clinton Portis will be in uniform for the Washington Redskins when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles tonight on Monday Night Football. According to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, Portis is on the preliminary inactive list for the Redskins.

Return ace Brandon Banks NOT among the Skins early inactive projections. Team expects he will play. Clinton Portis IS among early inactives    

Portis has been out of action since Week 4 with a partially torn groin. The original timetable for the injury was 4-6 weeks, and this would be Week 6. However, since Ryan Torain looks like he will be able to play despite a hamstring injury, the Redskins appear comfortable letting Portis rest another week so he can be fully healthy. He was limited all week in practice with the injury.

Then again, things could chance. We still have eight hours to go.
