Washington Redskins Injuries: Status Of Clinton Portis, Ryan Torain Remains Unclear

New, 1 comment

The Washington Redskins were battered emotionally after their 59-28 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but they were also battered physically. Several players are still injured, and their statuses are unclear.

The two most prominent injuries are Clinton Portis and Ryan Torain. Portis did not play in the game, as his injured groin did not heal in time. Torain was supposed to play in the game, but his injured hamstring tightened up beforehand and he couldn't play. Now, it appears that Torain is the more injured of the two Redskins running backs. Mike Shanahan said that Torain didn't participate in practice (via Jason Reid).

"I really don't know, 'cause we didn't go full speed today. We really didn't test 'em very hard," Shanahan said after practice at Redskins Park. "But Ryan is still hampered. He didn't practice today. He didn't get any reps. But Clinton was out there, you know, practicing today."    

Meanwhile, offensive lineman Jammal Brown left the game against the Eagles due to a head injury. He is scheduled to go through the standard concussion tests, but Shanahan said he feels good about where Brown is at.

Finally, Carlos Rogers suffered a hamstring injury, and his status remains unclear.
