PORTIS NOT LIKELY TO PLAY

With an NFC East showdown only three days away, the injured knee of Redskins running back Clinton Portis apparently won’t sufficiently heal to allow him to play.
“I was hoping today that there would be a little more optimism, and there’s not,” coach Jim Zorn said, per the AP.  “He’s still questionable.  I would say there’s no change today.  I was looking for another jump, but there wasn’t.”
Portis has a partially torn MCL, and the grade 2 sprain has a typical timetable of three-to-four weeks.
If Portis can’t go, Ladell Betts might be ready.  He has missed three games with an MCL tear of his own, but he practiced again on Thursday.
“Betts looked good,” Zorn said.  “He’s got a brace on, but made some cuts.  That was encouraging.”
If neither can go, 2005 NFL MVP Shaun Alexander would get the start against the 5-4 Cowboys.
