Erroneus report (Portis injury hoax)

So is this a hoax or not? ESPN news just went through their breaking stories and didn't report anything. You'd think they would be on top of it already.

Nothing about it on ESPN, nor CBSSPORTSLINE.COM, NFL.COM.

Nothing anywhere anymore, I guess someone pulled off a great prank. It got me to pick up Betts. Crap!

Check out the ESPN Redskins board. It was a hoax. Portis is NOT injured.

TE - R. McMichael
K - Janikowski
D - Pitt

If this is a hoax, and it seems so, they should have reported Portis out for the season. Would of been too funny to see people in redraft leagues actually drop the guy. :-b

Sounds like a hoax to me now. Was it an inside job or was it a hacker?
