Mon, 26 Jul 2010 06:38:20 -0700
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.

Washington Redskins RB Larry Johnson said his transition thus far with his new team has been just fine, according to Mark Viera, of The Washington Post. Johnson said he's comfortable with the number of carries he has received so far in minicamps and during organized team activities. He also feels comfortable in the team's zone-blocking scheme, even though the system seems to run counter to Johnson's strengths as a thundering, downhill runner. "I think it's definitely still downhill, because we're not actually running sideways," Johnson said. "We're waiting for one or two cuts and we're in there. People know I'm going to run downhill. As long as we stretch, stretch, stretch, and then bring it downhill, there's going to be holes on the backside."

The Washington Redskins are not concerned with how the carries will be distributed between RBs Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker this season, reports Zach Berman, of The Washington Post. "That's the least of our concerns right now," running backs coach Bobby Turner said, when asked about dealing with the personalities of the three running backs. "We want them competing and we're still installing, meaning we're still putting in our offense. That's the least of my concerns right now. Once we decide who makes the team and you start game-planning, that's a different a deal. But that's so far down the line." Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan added, "It's very rare that you have just one back and that one back plays in all 16 games. So to have three backs is going to make all three of them better. It's a matter of time, but all three of them will help us."

Obviously, I've done some research on him. I've talked to a number of people about him before we actually [brought] him in. Now, I'm actually looking forward to him competing at that position. But I can assure you that a lot of thought, a lot of study, goes into checking somebody's background and talking to a number of different people before it's actually done."

Rick Maese, of The Washington Post, reports former NFL head coach Dick Vermeil said he believes Washington Redskins RB Larry Johnson will beat out RB Clinton Portis for the team's starting running back spot.
