Clinton Portis seems to feel like the current concussion that has stopped him from taking the field is not going to end his career. The Redskins running back appeared at a charity event Tuesday and was asked about remarks he made last week, when he sounded as if he could be contemplating the end of his career. Portis replied: “I don’t think for one second this could be career ending.”
Portis ran for 494 yards this season for the Skins with a touchdown. There’s no doubt that the offense is better with him in there, and if he can come back and continue his career (he’s only 28 years old), he should. Portis is a solid running back, and there’s no question he should come back if he can.
