Clinton Portis Injury Lands Him On Injured Reserve; 2010 Season Is Over

On Monday the Washington Post speculated that the groin injury to Redskins RB Clinton Portis could cost him the rest of his 2010 season. Portis originally injured his groin in early October and was expected to be out 4-6 weeks. He came back last week but quickly re-injured the groin. Despite that, he said earlier this week that he still hopes to play in Week 12.

"Hopefully, the swelling [will] go down," Portis said. "The MRI didn't reveal anything new, so that was a great thing. That was great news. Right now, [I'm] dealing with swelling, and hopefully that [will] go down."

That's not happening. The Washington Post now reports that Portis has been placed on injured reserve ending his 2010 season with the Redskins. The loss of Portis definitely hurts the Redskins but it's really nothing new considering he's played in just five games this year.

He ends the season with 227 yards on 54 carries -- both career lows. He's now played in just 13 games in the last two seasons.

The Redskins will now look to Keiland Williams and James Davis at running back next week, as Ryan Torian is a "long shot" to play in Week 12 because of an injured hamstring.
