Groin injuries suck. I'll be surprised if he's back in 4 weeks, much less 6

Of course I hate to see Portis go out, but it will be a great time to see exactly what Torain has. I'd like to see him get at least 20 carries, maybe even 25 since Portis isn't in the game.

Get well CP! We sure will miss your blocking on 3rd downs!

My first thought on hearing the news ... we have almost certainly seen CP's last start as a Redskin. And depending on how quickly he gets back to game speed, we may have seen his last carry.

The man gets hurt almost every time he takes the field now ... unless he falls down to avoid getting tackled, which of course won't do.

The Clinton Portis Era endeth, friends.

Man had quite a run.

Yeah, I saw on twitter yesterday that he is owed $8.5M next year, but exactly none of it is guaranteed.

Happy trails, Clinton...kinda sad, actually.

Very sad. You can quibble with his off the field antics, but when he stepped on the field, all heart. I have great memories of him, starting with his first run.

Fred Taylor had a similar injury and was out for the season so I think it could be fair to say we've seen the last of Clinton. Not sure he'd be willing to come back to the Skins for less money. When a RB has a rough couple of years like Clinton has had, other teams are just not likely to gamble on him unless it's for vet minimum. He'll either have to mull that or retirement. Either way, we will likely be saying, to paraphrase Om, "thus endeth the Portis era."

He is much older than his chronological years.

I think it is what it is ......and it is over.

It's literally impossible for him to stay on the fied anymore. Hope he retires--give him a chance to end it on his terms. He did have one heck of a run though......
