Portis, who was hurt during a Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 3, said during his weekly radio show, via The Washington Post, that he wants to play Sunday.

"I mean, you know, that's what I'm aiming toward," Portis said. "But it's gonna be the same, you know, going through the week and showing, you know, an improvement from the beginning of the week to the end. And that'll be able to go get back on the field. I just got to be safe."

Portis said the odds of returning to the lineup against the Titans are "50-50." It all depends on whether Portis can "get through the week with no setbacks."

Portis practiced last week but experienced enough pain and swelling not to play Monday night.
