Zorn: Redskins RB Portis still dizzy from last month's concussion

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis continues to show symptoms from a concussion and will return to a specialist in Pittsburgh on Monday and Tuesday to evaluate his progress.

Portis was hurt during a Nov. 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons and will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday when the Redskinshost the unbeaten New Orleans Saints.

Redskins coach Jim Zorn said Friday that Portis "still has a little dizziness" when performing certain tasks.

Zorn said cornerback DeAngelo Hall remains doubtful for Sunday because of a sprained right knee and likely will miss his second consecutive game.

Zorn is optimistic that defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth will return after missing two games with a sprained left ankle. Haynesworth is listed as questionable on the injury report.
