    Clinton Portis is set to return for the Washington Redskins after missing five games with a torn left groin.

    Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday it looks as if the running back "will be ready to go" Sunday at Tennessee.

    The Redskins have been thin in the backfield. Ryan Torain missed Monday night's game when he aggravated a hamstring injury during warmups, and Shanahan said Torain will miss Sunday's game as well.

    Two starters in the secondary, cornerback Carlos Rogers and safety LaRon Landry, got in "a little bit of practice" Friday for the first time this week, Shanahan said.

    "There's a chance" either or both will play, Shanahan said.

    Rogers has yet to test his sore right hamstring in practice. Landry has a sore Achilles' tendon.
