He will play. The danger for fantasy owners is that they get up big and Zorn uses this game as an opportunity to rest him.
FWIW, he can tie a record held by only one other player in NFL history (OJ Simpson) in today's game with his fifth consecutive game with 120 yards rushing. Zorn, however, doesn't strike me as someone who will deliberately leave him in to get that record if he'd otherwise take him out, unless it only took one more carry to do it or something.
Chris Samuels is a late scratch, likely to rest his knee. Stephon Heyer was the starter at RT to start the season and should be ok, but Samuels and Kendall have been an incredible blocking duo on the left side of that line. This can't help Portis, but I don't think it's a disaster.
I didn't mean to imply you shouldn't start him. I just don't see this as a repeat of last week's 175-yard game because the team will likely take him out before it got to that point if the game goes as it should.
Nevermind. This Redskins team is the biggest tease I can remember. I can't believe they've gone into halftime trailing 10-6 against the Lions. The number of ways they find to shoot themselves in the foot is unreal.
