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.
Look I’m no doctor, but I don’t have to be one to realize that a reoccurring Achilles issue is certainly...
