ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have yet to run any trick plays for Clinton Portis in their new offense, but the star running back has already been involved in a couple of reverses regarding his playing status. Portis played in Monday's season-opening 19-16 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field after missing all but one series of the preseason with a partially dislocated left shoulder, but apparently he won't play tomorrow on the road against the Dallas Cowboys.

He may be 32, but Ricky Williams is far from done. And even without Ronnie Brown, the once written-off Miami Dolphins are back in the playoff picture. Williams rushed for 119 yards and scored three touchdowns, and the visiting Dolphins beat the Carolina Panthers, 24-17, on Thursday night for their fourth win in six games. A day after learning Brown is lost for the season, the Dolphins (5-5), who had lost their first three games of the season, continued their surge behind Williams.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Ever since Clinton Portis tried to bring down a Cincinnati Bengals cornerback who had intercepted a pass from Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell in the exhibition season opener Sunday night, there has been quite a bit of discussion here of how to approach the preseason. It came up with Redskins coach Joe Gibbs the next day, after it was confirmed that Portis had a partially dislocated left shoulder and Gibbs announced that the Redskins' single-season rushing leader would be out for the rest of preseason.

Denver Broncos quarterback Danny Kanell knew he would be hit, harassed and hurried by the Ravens' defense yesterday. And there was little he could do about it. Making his first start since the 2000 season when he was with the Atlanta Falcons, Kanell threw two interceptions, was sacked twice by linebacker Peter Boulware and earned a passer rating of 33.5 in the Broncos' 26-6 loss to the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Afterward, it was hard to tell if the tired look on Kanell's face stemmed from a flu bug that forced him to go to a Denver hospital on Friday for intravenous fluids, or from consistent pressure from a defense that ranked ninth in the NFL. "I think it was obvious what they were going to try to do to me," Kanell said.

You could make a strong case that the two top running backs in the NFL were on the field at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. But at the end of the afternoon, the Ravens' Jamal Lewis did what premier backs do by rushing for 134 yards, while the Denver Broncos' Clinton Portis had 86, with nearly a quarter of those yards coming with the game decided. It was the same old story for Lewis, who recorded his team-record sixth straight 100-yard game, and the Ravens' defense, which again forced an elite back to play second fiddle to Lewis in the 26-6 win. "We're going to keep every back under what Jamal is getting," linebacker Ed Hartwell said.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs hasn't forgotten about Clinton Portis. So despite the star running back's six-carry, 17-yard showing in Sunday's 16-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Gibbs reiterated yesterday the team's appreciation of Portis and his value to the Redskins (3-8). "I'd say Clinton Portis is one of the real pluses for this year," Gibbs said yesterday. "I hope that doesn't get lost in the fact that we're losing games. ... He's somebody we all have great respect for, and we're looking forward to a lot of years with him."

With big plays from their offense and defense, the Ravens didn't just prove they are prime-time players last night. Before a national television audience and the largest crowd in Ravens history (71,438), the Ravens declared they have the makings of being a dangerous team heading into their playoff run after methodically taking care of the Washington Redskins, 24-10, at a chilly M&T Bank Stadium last night. Two turnovers caused by Ed Reed - an interception on the opening series and a 22-yard fumble return for a touchdown - put the Ravens ahead 14-0 in the first quarter, and a 28-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason squashed a late Washington comeback.

Landover -- The killing of Pro Bowl safety Sean Taylor last week was a true tragedy. But the way the Washington Redskins lost yesterday's game at FedEx Field was still sad - because of how they lost and the day on which they lost. Rian Lindell's 36-yard field goal with four seconds left gave the Buffalo Bills an improbable 17-16 victory in a game in which the Redskins had never trailed. The most improbable part? Lindell's kick should have been from 51 yards, but it was moved 15 yards closer when Joe Gibbs, the Redskins' Hall of Fame coach, called two timeouts in a row to ice Lindell - against NFL rules and punishable by an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty.

Ravens reserve running back Mike Anderson doesn't mind waiting, waiting and waiting. Last year, he was behind starter Jamal Lewis. This time, he's No. 2 behind Willis McGahee. But when he gets his opportunity, the Ravens can rest assured they'll get his best. "Every day I come out here, I'm excited to be here, excited to practice," Anderson said. "If he [coach Brian Billick] calls me off the bench, he doesn't have to worry. I'll be ready." Anderson, 33, is an aberration in the National Football League.

Ed Hartwell doesn't mean to disrespect the Denver Broncos' Clinton Portis by not including him as one of the league's top five running backs. Fact is, the Ravens' linebacker refuses to make such a list and is approaching trying to contain Portis in the same manner he would as if he were facing the league's worst running back when the Ravens play host to the Broncos on Sunday. For Hartwell, every week and running back are the same. "You take it personal facing any running back," said Hartwell, who is second on the Ravens with 58 tackles, 30 fewer than Ray Lewis.

If it wasn't his revolving quarterbacks, it was his troubled running back. If it wasn't the running back, it was his recalcitrant wide receiver. If it wasn't the wide receiver, it was his injury-racked offensive line. It was always something this year for Butch Davis, struggling through the worst of his three seasons as coach of the Cleveland Browns. Today in Denver, it figures to get a little worse. That's because Davis' draft past will come back to haunt him in the person of Broncos running back Clinton Portis.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Two days after Clinton Portis said he was "75 percent" recovered from a partially dislocated left shoulder and one day after Portis said he might not make it back for even the second game of the season, the Washington Redskins announced that their star running back would play in tomorrow night's season opener. Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said yesterday that he would use Portis, who last season set the franchise single-season rushing record with 1,516 yards, in a backup role against the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Even before Shawn Springs underwent surgery for a torn abdominal muscle last month, there were concerns about the cornerback position on the Washington Redskins. The biggest question was about who would replace Springs if age and injury caught up with the 31-year-old cornerback, who, despite starting 15 games for the Redskins last season, was bothered by nagging leg and groin problems. It's been nearly a month since Springs has been out, and the answer is not readily apparent.
