According to Adam Schefter of the NFL Network, Clinton Portis will play for the Washington Redskins in today’s game in Seattle. He was listed as questionable with a sprained knee in the official injury report and coach Jim Zorn said during the week that Portis could be a game-time decision.

It remains to be seen whether or not Portis’ condition is sound enough for the team to deactivate reserve running back Sean Alexander today, paving the way for rookie receiver Malcolm Kelly to be on the game-day roster for the first time since Week 2. Zorn expressed concern earlier this week about putting Alexander on the shelf this week given the condition of Portis and that of Ladell Betts, who also is recovering from a sprained knee.

The inactive list will be released about an hour before kickoff; I’ll start my live blog of the game as soon as the list comes out. Join in for the fun right here at about 3:15. Archives
