Portis, Campbell hurt in Redskins game

The bye week hasn’t solved the offensive problems for the Washington Redskins.

The team trails 21-3 at halftime and suffered injuries to quarterback Jason Campbell and running back Clinton Portis.

Portis will miss the rest of the game with a concussion.  He’ll finish with four rushing yards on four carries; Ladell Betts will take over. 

Campbell left with a chest contusion in the second quarter, but the team announced he is probable to return.  Jim Zorn had some reason to go to Todd Collins simply because of Campbell’s play, but Campbell came out to start the second half. 

Campbell took four first half sacks and threw an interception returned for a touchdown.

  1. “Portis will miss the rest of the game with a concussion.”
    Any chance he’ll wear one of his clown suits on the sideline?

  2. I saw a report flash by that Portis suffered a contusion (bruise) on his head.
    Assuming that is accurate, it is likely he sustained a concussion and a contusion. That must have been a wicked hit to the head he took. On the replay, it appeared his head hit the ground.
    Very smart to keep him out of the rest of the game. No sense fooling around with someone’s permanent health in such a situation.

  3. Quick update…Todd Collins is already 1-1 passing!! (ignore the fact that it was for negative 4 yards) And Jason “Ive come back to make sure we lose” Campbell is back in the game…
