Portis is HurtFantasy football owners that hold the number-four pick in this year's draft are all muttering the same thing as Clinton Portis right about now:

Do we really need preseason games?!?

Portis separated his shoulder against the Bengals last night, trying to tackle a defender after an interception. The All-Pro - whose status for the season opener is now unclear - what not pleased about being in the game inthe first place.

"After that 8-yard run, I was like, 'Get me out of that game,'" Portis said. "That's what I was thinking. It's football. It can happen to anyone. It happened to me."

And now the injury bug has happened to a number of fantasy football players. After Larry Johnson, LaDainian Tomlinson and Shaun Alexander, Portis was pretty much the consensus next pick.

Now? It's up in the air. Tiki Barber is the next back on most people's list, but age must catch up with the Giants star at some point … right? Bottom line: if your draft is not for a couple weeks, refresh the Web every few minutes and check out Portis' status.
