Too much risk involved with Helu? I’m beginning to think so.
John Keim on Twitter has recently reported that Redskins RB Roy Helu has not one, but TWO, “sore” Achilles tendons which isn’t good news for anyone looking to draft the youngster. The real issue is the actual interpretation of this news and whether or not this said interpretation means we all should be turning our notice towards fellow RB Evan Royster.
Roy Helu actually has Achilles Tendinitis, which is where the soreness is coming from. Achilles Tendinitis is caused from a variety of influences mostly including overpronation and lack of flexibility.
The problem is this: Helu has already said that the issue in the left tendon is nothing new—good to know NOW—but it has never been this extreme. NOW, Helu is dealing with the OTHER Achilles as well which is even worse news that hints towards the problem being a chronic one.

When Jerraud Powers lines up on Saturday against the Washington Redskins, a familiar face will be staring at him across the line of scrimmage. Powers will most likely be matched up against former indianapolis Colts WR Pierre Garcon. Garcon told a Redskins reporter yesterday that while he's excited about his opportunity in Washington, he never wanted to leave Indianapolis...
Week 2 of the NFL Preseason has passed and for the Washington Redskins it was a roller coster ride of a game as they lost to the Chicago Bears by a score of 33-31. The big story of the game no doubt was the superb play of rookie QB Kirk Cousins in the second half. [...]
Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo and strong safety Brandon Meriweather will miss the final two preseason games with injuries.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that MRIs on both players revealed good news. Orakpo has damaged some scar tissue in his left shoulder, and Meriweather has a swollen and sore left knee. Neither player will require surgery.
Both were hurt in Washington...
I am a proponent of the best player should play.
Regardless if you are the 1st pick in the draft or Mr. Irrelevant, but when things are equal it makes no sense at all to start a controversy when you have already decided who you are going to start.
Robert Griffin III was drafted to start for the Washington Redskins. That is why he takes the 1st team snaps, that is why the offensive...
Clinton Portis is announcing his retirement, nearly two years after he played his last NFL game.
The Washington Redskins said Tuesday that Portis and owner Dan Snyder will hold a retirement news conference Thursday.
Portis played two seasons with the Denver Broncos and then seven with the Redskins. He is most remembered for the colorful array of characters he created each week...
It has been a while since the Washington Redskins have had an explosive player who is a threat to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. Players like Randy Moss in 1998, Devin Hester in 2006, or even Deion Sanders during his “Prime Time” glory days of the 1990s (not the 2000 version that delivered few big plays for a mediocre 8-8 Redskins team with Super Bowl title...

The Washington Redskins won't have Evan Royster for Saturday's preseason dress rehearsal against the Indianapolis Colts. Royster has a sore right knee that the team claims wouldn't keep him out of a regular-season game. An MRI exam came back clean, but Royster and Roy Helu will be inactive for Saturday's game. Helu has Achilles soreness. "I'm not sure...
