Eagles Vs. Redskins: Clinton Portis, Ryan Torain And Brandon Banks All Game-Time Decisions

As of Thursday, Clinton Portis, Ryan Torain and Brandon Banks were all game-time decisions for Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. As of Friday, they still are. However, we do know a little bit more about their statuses today.

Portis remains a game-time decision, but he is still experiencing pain in his injured groin. He was limited in practice for a second straight game, and coach Mike Shanahan said the team will proceed cautiously with him. Via Mike Jones of TBD.

"It's a little bit more difficult for him because you have to be careful," Shanahan said of Portis. "He wants to go, but still a little bit sore. I think the doctors will look at it and talk to him tomorrow and we'll have a little bit better feel for what direction we should go. But he's biting at the bit and wants to go. We just have to make sure we're smart relative to his injury. ... I've been around Clinton, I just know. It's hard to keep him away. But you've got to do what's right."    

Torain, however, did go through the full practice for the second straight day after injuring his hamstring against the Detroit Lions two weeks ago. Shanahan seemed much more optimistic about Torain. Via Jones:

"Ryan did a pretty good job," Shanahan said. "There was no setback. He's again day-by-day. He's pushing himself pretty hard, and hopefully tomorrow, he'll feel pretty good."    

Meanwhile, Banks fielded a few punts and looked pretty good. Shanahan said they would get another opinion tomorrow and decide before the game.

LaRon Landry was a limited participant in practice today with an achilles injury for the second straight day, but he is expected to play. Brian Orakpo, who didn't practice yesterday with a back injury, was a full participant today, according to the official injury report.
