Portis questionable; 3 Lions doubtful

The biggest news on Friday’s injury report regards Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis who did not practice Friday due to an ankle injury. He is listed as questionable for Sunday.

For the Lions, as expected, defensive end Cliff Avril (hamstring), who missed last Sunday’s game, is doubtful to play Sunday against the Redskins. Linebacker Ernie Sims, who injured his shoulder in the last play of the loss to the Vikings, is also doubtful along with cornerback Eric King (shoulder). None of the three practiced on Friday. Three are questionable for Sunday: cornerback Phillip Buchanon (neck), defensive end Andre Fluellen (knee) and quarterback Drew Stanton (knee). Defensive tackle Grady Jackson (knee), fullback Jerome Felton (ankle), defensive tackle Sammie Hill (neck), guard Daniel Loper (knee) and safety Marquand Manuel (knee) are probable for Sunday.

The only other Redskins on the injury report are all probable for Sunday: Quarterback Jason Campbell (foot), defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery (knee) and tackle Mike Williams (illness). — PAULA PASCHE
