Anyone can get injured with one hit, and since when are you Portis personal doctor. I personally think he'll be starting next week. I'm not saying that he doesn't feel the injury, but he doesn't require surgery, and maybe he'll get some after the seasons end. But I am sure he'll be fine, Doctors say he's healthy enough to play.
Stop the presses, I agree with Shawn. Any joint seperation injury is a serious re-occuring problem for a football player during the season. He may be getting by on Cortisone injections for the time being, but after getting hit over and over again his performance is bound to diminish, if not stop completely.
I think Portis will have a pretty good season however he becamse a very risky pick in FF league his stock dropped out of the top 5 RB when he his should was starting to bother him. And with the bring of Duckett to the skins odds are the redskins are anticipating Portis to get less touches and maybe finish this season with only 8 games played if he aggravates the injury.
Portis is one of the premiere RBs he will continue to have good games unless the injury catches up to him.
