Redskins RB Portis Out for Sundays Showdown with Dallas

For the second straight week, the Redskins will be without running back Clinton Portis, as he has again been ruled out with a concussion. Coach Jim Zorn on Thursday ruled Portis out for Sunday’s game at Dallas.

Portis has not been able to practice since he was injured in a helmet-to-helmet hit against Atlanta. Ladell Betts is set to start for Portis for the second consecutive week.

Zorn says defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth remains a game-time decision with a sprained left ankle. The coach says Haynesworth is “coming along” and that the ankle’s swelling is starting to go down.
