Portis in the mix at QB?

Jeff Barker from the Baltimore Sun reported late Wednesday afternoon that presumed 3rd string QB Josh Portis might be moving up the ladder on the quarterback depth chart. Apparently, the Fridge recently had Portis take reps against the 1st string defense and Portis did a good job. How much weight that carries in terms of the Terps QB battle is hard to say.  I personally don't read too much into it. Portis is a great talent, but he apparently has had and continues to have trouble with learning and understanding the offensive playbook. Perhaps he has turned the corner, perhaps not. In typical Friedgen style, we probably won't know until August 30th at 3:45 P.M. who the starting quarterback for the 2008 season will be.

Who knows - maybe we'll see all 3?
