It is looking more and more like the Redskins will be without nickel cornerback Tracy Porter when they take on the Texans on Sunday.
Coach Jay Gruden said that Porter did not practice today due to a hamstring strain. Porter injured the hamstring during a practice session on Saturday and he has not practiced since than.
Gruden said that rookie Bashaud Breeland and veteran E. J. Biggers can go at nickel back if Porter is unable to play.
Linebacker Akeem Jordan (knee) also did not practice. Outside linebacker Brian Orakpo was limited but he said earlier today that he expects to play against Houston.
