Redskins injuries: Two players out, Portis doubtful

ASHBURN, Va. -- More injuries woes for the Washington Redskins: Chris Horton and Mike Williams will be sidelined multiple weeks, and Clinton Portis is doubtful for the next game with a concussion.

Starting strong safety Horton damaged a ligament in his left big toe in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Atlanta. He's out a minimum of four to six weeks -- and it'll be four to six months if a specialist decides the toe needs surgery.

Offensive lineman Williams, who has started the last four games, is out two to four weeks with a ligament tear in his ankle.

Coach Jim Zorn says the team will play it safe with Portis, who took a helmet-to-helmet blow during the first quarter on Sunday. Portis will undergo a test Tuesday to determine if he can play next week against Denver.
