Redskins RBs Limited Again In Practice

It remains to be seen who will start on Monday night at running back for the Washington Redskins. It looks like both Clinton Portis and Ryan Torain will be gametime decisions. Each player was limited in Friday's practice for the second consecutive day.

Portis has been sidelined since the first meeting with the Eagles due to a groin injury. Torain suffered a hamstring injury in the Redskins' loss to the Lions two weeks ago.

Keiland Williams is in line to start if neither Portis nor Torain can suit up.

Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said on Friday that he's preparing for the Redskins scheme, not so much the personnel.

"It's a zone running scheme with some misdirection routes built in," McDermott said. "Whether it's Torain or Portis or whoever falls in behind those two or three, we'll take the challenge."

The Redskins did receive some good news as return specialist Brandon Banks took part in Friday's practice albeit on a limited basis. Banks is recovering from a meniscus injury. Special teams coordinator Bobby April was asked on Friday about Banks and believes that he won't play.

"This young man has had a really big impact on their team. He was a great pick up for them," April said of Banks. "So if he plays we have a challenge, and if he doesn't, we still have a challenge. We have to play to the best of our ability and whatever they do, that's their problems."

Washington's top pass rusher, linebacker Brian Orakpo, returned to practice in a full capacity on Friday. He missed Thursday's workout with a back injury. Strong safety LaRon Landry was limited for the Redskins due to an Achilles injury. Quarterback Donovan McNabb was a full participant with his hamstring/groin injuries.
