Redskins | Portis looks for larger workload

Ryan O'Halloran, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis admits he expected to play a larger role in the club's new offensive system. "I have to adapt to his game plan," Portis said of offensive coordinator Al Saunders. "The game plan isn't just suited to me. It's a team effort and it's about spreading the ball around and getting the touches to all of the play makers. Right now, I haven't been getting the carries I expected to get, but it'll come." Likewise, Saunders is still getting accustomed to having a player like Portis in his backfield. "It's an ongoing thing," Saunders said. "Clinton missed training camp, has been in and out of the lineup the first several games. I'm just starting to get the feel for him."
