December 8-- Betts Gets contract extension

The Skins inked RB Ladell Betts to a contract extension, the terms of which have not currently been disclosed.. Betts said the team realized as the season was progressing that you need two tailbacks.. He said he is comfortable here and that he was very happy to stay without testing the open market.. Earlier he had said he wanted the opportunity to be a starter somewhere but in terms of comfort level and relationship with Clinton Portis, he felt like this was the place for him to stay..
Clinton Portis said he was very happy for Betts.. He’s been openly supportive of Betts since he came here and has the green light to take himself out of a game and put Betts in at any time..
Portis said he will be out 5 more months as he rehabs a shoulder that he knew when he injured it would inevitably need surgery to repair it.. Portis had a similar injury at the end of his high school career, it was the right shoulder, this time it’s his left and he said he has not had a problem since with the repaired one.. Portis believes he won’t be able to practice again likely until training camp, making the Betts signing even more urgent.. This likely means TJ Duckett will be allowed to leave via free agency after the seaon.. The team ultimately will have given up a 3rd round draft pick for a player with minimal carries..

Jon Jansen returned to practice today and said he intends to play Sunday against Philadelphia.. He has been dealing with a strained calf that he admits is getting worse every week.. But he says the only way it can get better is with rest and he won’t do that until after the season.. Surgery is not going to be necessary to fix it.. Asked if he is forcing himself to play, Jansen said “No, I like to play and I’ll do whatever I can to be ready and I’ll be ready this week.”

The injury report is unchanged, everyone on it is probable..

Joe Gibbs was asked to clarify comments he made to the Washington Post where he said he would consider a GM come next season.. he said “I would do anything that would be in the best interest of the Redskins and if Dan decided that is something we should consider then I will.” He also defended much of the construction of the team and still believes how the team is structured is the right way.. he did admit some of the moves, “didn’t work outas we would have liked,” but there was no inclination that he intends to bring a true GM here, that would only happen if Dan Snyder says he believes the team should make such a move..
