It seems like every week we link to something Redskins RB Clinton Portis says on his weekly radio spot with 106.7 The Fan's The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner. He’s funny and controversial, and that’s why he always seem to find a place on the blog on Tuesdays.

Today, he dropped a hint that he might not be with the Redskins long enough to break the franchise rushing record.

"I'm gonna be running the ball again this year," Portis said, according to the Washington Post. "Now, I can't control what kind of uniform it's in. But I would hope it's in the Redskins' uniform.

"But I got no doubt that I'll recover from this injury and I'll be back out to help my teammates. Unless something miraculous or something crazy happens, knock on wood. But just as far as this groin injury and me coming back to the game of football, I think I'll be fine."

Portis needs 680 yards to break the club mark set by John Riggins (7,472 yards). In his career, Portis has gained 9,891 yards.

"There's a lot of motivation to get back in there and hit 10,000," Portis said. "You don't come this close to drop me off here. I think for myself, I'll be there, man. It's no ifs ands or buts about it...I wanted Emmitt Smith numbers. Now, just being able to get 10,000 and join elite company would be a great [accomplishment], so I'm looking forward to it."

While his optimism is great, the Post and CSN Washington have predicted that Portis has played his last game with the Redskins. And it sounds like Portis isn’t too sure himself.
