When Royster did see the field, it was primarily in a special teams role.To fill the void on the roster left by Royster, the Redskins have called running back Jawan Jamison up from the practice squad. During the preseason, Jamison rushed for 54 yards on 16 carries.The injury could spell the end of the line for Royster. After showing some promise as a rookie in 2011, Royster's numbers dropped in 2012, and was a non-factor for the Redskins this season.
