Redskins coach Jim Zorn told The Washington Post that RB Clinton Portis was “knocked out” during Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. Portis suffered a concussion during the first quarter of the game and didn’t return. He carried the ball just four times before being forced to leave.
Since most teams are cautious with players coming off concussions, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Portis deactivated for next week’s game against the Broncos.
That would make backup RB Ladell Betts a must-add player off the fantasy waiver wire.
Betts, who rushed for 70 yards and a touchdown after Portis exited, is a free agent in 89 percent of NFL.com leagues.
