ASHBURN, Va. - The numbers are impressive. Only the third running back in NFL history to gain 1,500 yards in each of his first two seasons. Eighteen 100-yard rushing games during that span. One yard shy of 3,100 rushing yards, 678 receiving yards and 31 combined touchdowns. And yet Washington Redskins tailback Clinton Portis finds himself concerned about an entirely different number: that of his uniform. Portis, who wore No. 26 with the Denver Broncos during his first two seasons, slipped into a jersey with the No. 3 during Washington's first minicamp last month.

ASHBURN, Va. -- A sack means one of two things to Joe Gibbs. "If our quarterback is hit, somebody made a mistake or we had a bad plan," the Washington Redskins' coach said. "I'm as much a part of it as anybody because I'm standing there and studying it. We need a good plan and a good scheme." Pass protection became an area of concern after Washington (3-2) dropped its second straight game with a 28-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday. Kansas City had four sacks, including three by unheralded defensive end Jared Allen, who forced a fumble from quarterback Mark Brunell and recovered it to end the Redskins' opening drive at the Chiefs' 7-yard line.

HERNDON, Va. -- The Washington Redskins found out yesterday that quarterback Mark Rypien will miss the make-or-break part of their season.Dr. Charles Jackson, the team's orthopedic physician, performed arthroscopic surgery on Rypien's left knee and found out the injury is worse than the Redskins originally had thought.He suffered damage to two ligaments and the posterior capsule of the knee, was declared out for six to eight weeks and will go on the injured-reserve list."That's a tough break," said coach Joe Gibbs, who would comment only briefly because he usually works on his game plans on Tuesdays and doesn't schedule time for interviews.

HERNDON, Va. -- The fallout of defeat has showered Joe Bugel's desert paradise in Arizona this season.In the second year of an ambitious project to turn the Phoenix Cardinals into the Washington Redskins West, Bugel treads water with a 4-9 record.It was bad enough that the Cardinals' head coach lost his starting quarterback before the season began. The situation grew worse with the five-game losing streak the Cardinals take into Sunday's home game against the Redskins.But this week found Bugel defending the organization from an insinuation that Cardinals management restricts individual expression, and that the restriction has hurt the team.

Stan Gelbaugh, who led his World League of American Football team to the league's inaugural championship and then gave up on football, will start the next Phoenix Cardinals game, coach Joe Bugel said yesterday.Bugel said Gelbaugh earned the promotion by producing the type of big plays the woefully impotent Cardinals have needed in a 4-7 season.Gelbaugh, 28, said that except for the WLAF, the start would be his first since his college days at Maryland.Even there, he had to wait his turn to start behind Boomer Esiason, now with Cincinnati, and Frank Reich, No. 2 at Buffalo.

TAMPA, Fla. - Long before he accomplished the dazzling feat of guiding the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl, Ken Whisenhunt's NFL coaching career had an inauspicious start in Baltimore. As a 35-year-old tight ends coach with the Ravens in 1997, Whisenhunt made news when he got trapped in an elevator for 10 minutes before the last game at Memorial Stadium. All the coaches - Whisenhunt and other assistants - made it to their posts in time for the game. A year later, Whisenhunt was let go with most of the Ravens' coaching staff when the team fired Ted Marchibroda and hired Brian Billick.

PHILADELPHIA -- After the first week, the Philadelphia Eagles thought they had found a certain discipline, a fresh, no-mistakes approach to football preached with vigor by new coach Rich Kotite.Yesterday, during a 26-10 loss to the Phoenix Cardinals before 63,818 in the home opener at Veterans Stadium, the Eagles discovered a lot was missing besides injured quarterback Randall Cunningham. It seems that long-awaited precision was, too.After promising to cut back on penalties, the Eagles committed 10 yesterday -- 72 yards' worth.

Ravens run offense vs. Cardinals run defense Willis McGahee has averaged a respectable 87 yards a game but is managing just 3.9 yards a carry. It will be a challenge going against the Cardinals, who have handled Frank Gore (55 yards rushing) and Shaun Alexander (70) this season. The defense is anchored by nose tackle Gabe Watson (332 pounds) and their leading tackler is weak-side linebacker Karlos Dansby. Four of McGahee's 14 career 100-yard games have come against NFC West teams. Edge: Cardinals Ravens pass offense vs. Cardinals pass defense Steve McNair returns as starting quarterback after missing last week because of a sore groin.

Talking back to MikeFor years, Mike Ditka, the coach of the Chicago Bears, has been poking fun at the Minnesota Vikings, noting all the Pro Bowl players they have, suggesting they don't have heart and calling the Metrodome the Tinkerdome. Jerry Burns, the Vikings coach, finally had enough and replied last week."In the first place, nobody takes Mike seriously. He babbles on and on, much to the delight of the media. To me, he's the Muhammad Ali of pro football. He's more knowledgeable about my team than I am. He knows how many Pro Bowlers we've got. He knows that we're underachievers.
