Clinton Portis Media Session

On his injured knee:

"It is coming along, it is sore. It is better than it was last week. I am playing this week and there are no ifs, ands or buts about it. I will be playing."

On whether his knee bothered him against the Cowboys:

"I tried not to notice it. I didn't have leg drive. I couldn't have high knees and pull up out of stuff. I think as far as running the ball, I did okay. When you talk about breaking tackles and having a burst of speed, I didn't have it. That is what I am working on this week."

On whether this is the toughest injury he has ever played with:

"I wouldn't say that because I've had a sternum [injury] and shoulder [injury]. Every injury, when you get it, you think it is the toughest. It is not anything that I can not fight through."

On how Coach Zorn feels about playing Seattle:

"I think he wants to get a win just like the rest of us. It has been three weeks since we have had a win and I think guys are having a lot of questions. Everybody just wants to get a win."

On playing in Seattle:

"We lost there twice in the playoffs. This is a different year, this is a different time and we have to put that behind us. Hopefully this can be our first win in the last three times we've been up there."
