Portis Says Issue Between He and Sellers Is Overblown wrote today about the hissy fit between Clinton Portis and Mike Sellers, and how Portis says it’s been overblown:

Redskins RB Clinton Portis used his Tuesday radio appearance on The Johnson Thompson Show on ESPN 980 to address his recent run-in with FB Mike Sellers, saying the incident wasn’t a big deal. Sellers sought out Portis in the locker room last week after learning that the running back had called offensive coordinator Sherman Smith during the game against the Buccaneers to request TE Todd Yoder as his lead blocker.

Sellers, a Pro Bowler, has been blocking for Portis since the running back joined the Redskins in 2004. “Man, I think it was a minor situation that was blown out of proportion,” Portis said Tuesday. “I think me and Mike handled that, and I thought it was between me and him. You know, there was only two other people in the locker room when it happened, so how it got out to the media. I mean, it’s exchanging words. You know, when you work with somebody year round, somebody every day, you know, Mike always feel like that big brother-little brother role. I think Mike, being an older cat, a veteran cat, Mike always want the big-brother role, and sometimes little brother and big brother not gonna co-exist. But you know, we exchanged our words, and it was done with, and then all the sudden, the media got a hold of it. So we discussed it, and we fine.”
