Redskins Portis Thinking About Calling it a Career?

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that Redskins running back Clinton Portis is thinking about walking away from football. He’s already done for the remainder of the season:

Clinton Portis can’t say with certainty whether he’ll be in the Redskins’ backfield next season, but team officials have decided he won’t be returning this year. The Redskins placed their star running back on the season-ending injured-reserve list because of lingering problems stemming from a concussion he sustained last month. Though the team expects Portis to eventually return from the injury, Portis said, “If it’s my time, I think I had a great career. I think I’ll get well. I think I have to go and really put the time into rehabbing and continuing to do what the doctors say,” Portis said. But at the same time, man, to have the opportunity to play for eight years and play, compete and not miss many games and to carry the organization, I’m thankful for Mr. [Daniel] Snyder and Coach [Joe] Gibbs bringing me to the Redskins and the Broncos drafting me.”
