THOSE FELLAS FROM THE U ARE TOUGH COOKIES

Former Miami Hurricane Clinton Portis is the man. In spite of an ever-growing list of nagging injuries, the Redskin runner again hoisted his team on his back yesterday in Seattle. Portis had 143 yards on 29 carries and seemed to have the ball in his hands for all of the second half of the final quarter.

While Jim Zorn wants to run his version of the West Coast offense, he inherited a Joe Gibbs team designed for smash mouth football. That's OK with Portis.

CP said an early blow from an elbow almost knocked him out. Then came a hit to his ribs, the new muscle pull and a hard plant that he thought almost blew out the sprained knee.

“You sure I don’t have a black eye?” he asked reporters with an impish grin.
