Guys, don't get too excited. Portis WILL play, but one hit in the chest and he is done. Look at this: Copy/Pasted from news site.
Clinton Portis (bruised sternum) took hits in full pads on Thursday and felt fine, the Associated Press reported. Portis missed last Sunday's game and has not finished a start all season. "Really, I don't have any concerns,'' Portis said. "I feel good and if I didn't, I don't think I'd put myself in this situation. I'm ready to go out and test it.'' Head coach Mike Shanahan added, "He said he had no setback, so he should be ready to go unless something happens tomorrow.''
Portis added that there is still a chance his rib could pop out, as it did against the Raiders a couple weeks back. Obviously, if the rib pops out, he's done for the day. This week's game against the Chiefs at Arrowhead promises to be one of the most physical of the season, so Portis is a very, very risky start. Basically, if you have a solid alternative, take it. If you have no depth at running back, however, roll the dice on Portis.
See what I am saying? I have him too, but I am not risking it.
