Default Clinton Portis

Is he still the starter at RB, also how is his injury healing...and will Betts take a lot of carries from him next year?

Portis is the starter. He was on NFL Network a few days ago and talked about him and Betts. They will split carries like they always have, which is acually very smart because both RB's will stay fresh the whole game, making the running game in the 4th dangerous. As for his injury, he said it is about 90 percent healed, and that even if the season started right now, he would be able to jump in and play at 100 percent.

Thanks, i would assume Portis would get the majority of the carries though, right?

Yes, I dont know if they will run Portis on first and second, or what they will do. Portis will get the most carries, and is a better back than Betts on paper. Gibbs and the Skins love Portis and know how to fit him into the offence well, and one bad year because of injury "shouldn't" effect his playing time.

Just figure the Skins will have a solid running game next year if the two backs are used well in the offence.:)
