Redskins | Clinton Portis may be third-down back

Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis may have to serve as the team's third down back in 2010, reports John Keim, of the Washington Examiner. The Redskins do not have a lot of speed at running back, and RBs Larry Johnson and Willie Parker have never filled the third-down role during their careers. Plus, neither back is considered a good blocker. The Redskins could be forced to use Portis as their third down back and spell him with other backs more on first and second down.
