ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Detroit Lions.

Portis has sore ankles and did not practice Friday. Still, coach Jim Zorn said he expects Portis to play for the Redskins (1-1) against the Lions (0-2).

Zorn also said that Chad Rinehart beat out Will Montgomery for the starting right guard job. Rinehart, a third-round draft pick in 2008, never has played in a regular-season NFL game.

He replaces Randy Thomas, who is out for the season after tearing his right triceps against the St. Louis Rams last weekend.
