I can see it now …

I’m going to get about 1,000 “Should I bench Clinton Portis this week” questions …

Portis was held to 22 yards on 11 carries and failed to score a touchdown against the Giants. He’s all banged up, dealing with knee, hip and ribcage injuries, and he also took a shot in the neck during Sunday’s game.

Next on the schedule, a date with the Ravens and their impressive run defense.

I’ll tell you now what I’ll tell you all week — if you have backfield depth and a legitimate option to use in favor of Portis, I’d bench him.

Otherwise, I think you have to roll the dice.
