Friday quick hits
*RB Clinton Portis traveled to Pittsburgh today to be evaluated by a concussion specialist, coach Jim Zorn said. Portis is following the lead of concussed Philadelphia Eagles RB Brian Westbrook, who earlier this week met with met with Dr. Mark Lovell, a neuropsychologist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program.
*DT Albert Haynesworth (sprained left ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Dallas. He is still a game-time decision. "Albert was on the treadmill today working," Zorn said.
*FB Eddie Williams was carted off the field near the end of this morning’s practice. He was to have his left ankle x-rayed. No word, yet, on the results or the severity of his injury.
*The Redskins still aren’t saying whether CB Carlos Rogers will start on Sunday. "He could, but right now we’ve got a little mix going," Zorn said. "We like what we’re seeing out there. I like what I’m seeing in Carlos and how he’s responded to the situation. Sometimes it happens where you just have to bide your time and wait for your next opportunity. I know with Carlos it will come, and I think he knows it will come as well."
*Offensive line coach Joe Bugel believes LT Levi Jones could have a future with the Redskins beyond this season. "I think he realizes this is an audition for him and he’s going to play his rear end off," Bugel said. "I like guys like that."
