Portis vows he’ll return this season

Clinton Portis could be out much longer than the four-to-six weeks that has been suggested by Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. The thinking among some was that Portis could be done for the season after suffering a third degree separation of the left groin.

Portis addressed those rumors during his weekly radio appearance on 106.7 The Fan on Tuesday, saying he has “no doubt” he’ll return from the injury this season.

“I’m gonna be running the ball again this year,” Portis said, per Jason Reid of The Washington Post. “Now, I can’t control what kind of uniform it’s in. But I would hope it’s in the Redskins’ uniform.

“But I got no doubt that I’ll recover from this injury and I’ll be back out to help my teammates. Unless something miraculous or something crazy happens, knock on wood. But just as far as this groin injury and me coming back to the game of football, I think I’ll be fine.”

Portis did decline to put a timeline on his return, though.
