The Redskins have been looking for varying running back depth.  They obviously use Alfred Morris...

Five things to watch for in the Washington Redskins final preseason game

Chris Thompson: The battle for running back is a tight one. Alfred Morris and Roy Helu Jr seem to be locks (Morris for sure). Chris Thompson was assumed to be a lock as the third down back before camp started, but injuries that have caused him to miss the last two preseason games put his status on this team in jeopardy. He’ll be playing on Thursday night, and it’ll be his opportunity...

Redskins RB Chris Thompson is ’50-50′ for Ravens

Running back Chris Thompson is engulfed in a deep competition for the third (and possibly fourth) running back position on the Washington Redskins roster. But he hasn’t been able to compete as of late, nursing an ankle injury that has kept him out of practice since Aug. 10.

Lache Seastrunk is Too Explosive For the Redskins to Cut

There is often not much to draw from preseason football, especially the first game. Each team has their own agenda for the exhibition season. A team like the New England Patriots is pretty much set with who will and will not make their 53-man roster. A team like the Washington Redskins is looking for anything positive to build off. Everyone is out there trying to impress the new...

Redskins surprise cuts #1: You say Helu, I say Goodbye

This story contributed by Scott Hirsch. Every analyst I have read about the running back position says the main decision is basically Roy Helu Jr. vs. Chris Thompson.  The thinking is that since Thompson isn’t durable, Helu wins.
