November 15-- Portis done, both QB's speak

As reported first by Triple X ESPN radio, Clinton Portis was placed on injured reserve today which ends his season.. Portis said he was weighing whether he would undergo shoulder surgery but the team is adamant he will have a procedure done..
The team will wait a few weeks to let his surgically repaired hand to heal before having him undergo a procedure that the team describes as something that will strengthen the joint, but he will need 4-5 months of rehab before he can get back on the field.. Portis had his other shoulder fixed when he injured it in high school..
The team has signed tight end Brian Kozlowski to replace Portis on the roster..

Kozlowski played with the team the last two seasons, is described as a good chemistry player and is going to be potentially active this weekend because TE Christian Fauria missed practice, he is wearing a boot on his injured ankle, is listed as questionable and Joe Gibbs believes he may have to miss this game..

WR Santana Moss missed a portion of practice, he is dealing with a sore hamstring and is questionable.. T Jon Jansen missed a portion of practice (probable) with a calf injury, CB Shawn Springs is probable (hamstring/groin) he was given a rest day from practice, trainers described his situation as Springs needing a day off during the week as he did a week ago but they think it is better for that rest day to come earlier in the week..
S Sean Taylor was held out of practice, he had his wisdom teeth removed…

TB injury list: CB Juran Boldin (hip), T Anthony Davis (ankle), T Donald Penn (foot), RB Michael Pittman (shoulder), LB Shelton Quarles (knee/ankle), DE Simeon Rice (shoulder), DT Ellis Wyms (ankle) all are listed as questionable…

Jason Campbell said the “shock” of being named the starting quarterback is behind him and he is starting to accept the new role.. he says all of his teammates including Mark Brunell have been extremely supportive.. many of the players were messing with Campbell during his media session.. it’s safe to say that while everyone is apprehensive about expectations for Campbell’s first game, everyone was happy for him and seemingly rallying around him..

Mark Brunell spoke for what could be the last time for a while to us ending his session with reporters by mockingly saying “Nice talking to you guys this year.” He opened by somewhat joking, “Lets get this beating started.”
Brunell said he does not want to let anyone think he is saying that he believes he is a scapegoat and he thanks all his teammates for their support through the decision that was made.. he said now is not the time to talk about his future, all he is worried about right now is being the back-up for Jason Campbell..
