Torain Likely To Start For Redskins

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told reporters on Saturday that running back Ryan Torain has had "no setbacks" this week and "should be full speed" for Monday night against the Eagles.

Torain suffered a hamstring injury in the Redskins' loss to the Lions two weeks ago. He was limited in practice all week and is officially listed as questionable. Starting running back Clinton Portis is also questionable, but is not as likely to play. Portis has been sidelined since the first meeting with the Eagles due to a groin injury. Shanahan said that it's more likely that Portis will rest one more game before returning to the lineup.

"You have to do what's right for him and what's right for the football team," Shanahan said regarding Portis.

In all, eight players are on the Redskins injury report and all of them are questionable including quarterback Donovan McNabb with his hamstring and groin injuries. McNabb was a full participant in practice all week.

Strong safety LaRon Landry increased his workload on Saturday. Landry had been limited with an Achilles injury, but was a full participant today.

Return specialist Brandon Banks is trying to come back after having meniscus surgery. Shanahan said that Banks would be a game time decision, but "the good thing is there's a chance."
