ROY HELU RUMORS & GOSSIP

Redskins identity: Run, run and run

The identity of a team can make or break its season. Are they a solid defensive team who can win with minimal offense? Or are they a high-powered scoring machine which can blister you with a barrage of points. No matter what their identity is, each NFL team has one, and it just so happens that the make-up of the Washington Redskins is run, run, and run some more. In 2012, the Washington...

Did the Washington Redskins make the right choices at running back?

The Washington Redskins have finished cutting their roster down to 53 players, making some tough decisions in the process. The most talked about/debated position was running back. Head coach Jay Gruden chose to keep the trio of Alfred Morris, Roy Helu Jr, and Silas Redd. Second year back Chris Thompson was signed to the practice squad, while rookie sixth round pick Lache Seastrunk...

Camp Preview: Roy Helu is set to play a huge role in the Redskins offense

It seems as if the general consensus is that Alfred Morris somehow had a down year last season. That simply isn’t true. Morris was just as much a beast in 2013 as he was in 2012. I mean, the guy ran for 1,275 yards and seven touchdowns, on 4.6 yards per carry, last season. That’s very good. Really, the only reason he didn’t reach his rookie numbers is the lack of carries...

Redskins RB Roy Helu scores free shampoo for a year from Suave

You may remember a story we published last week about how Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. expressed his desire to become a spokesman for Suave shampoo. You know, similar to the way Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu plugs Head & Shoulders. Well, as fate would have it, word has apparently gotten around to Suave, and they have offered Helu a free year's...

Beyond the TDs, Roy Helu becoming a big part of Washington offense (Week 7 RB Touches)

Typically when either of Washington’s Shanahans says anything about a running back you take it with a grain of salt, but, a few weeks ago the team indicated that they’d be getting Roy Helu more involved and they’ve done so, to the tune of 22 touches over the past two weeks. This week, Helu rewarded them with three scores. It’s still Alfred Morris‘ backfield (a healthy 19...

Roy Helu was able to make sharp cuts at the end of OTA’s

According to The Washington Times,  Redskins running back Roy Helu is expected to be fully recovered from last year’s toe injury.

The Return of Roy Helu

Nine months after injuring ligaments in his toe, Redskins running back Roy Helu, Jr. was seen taking handoffs, catching passes, cutting and running full speed.  The Redskins front office was forced to bring in competition for 3rd year running backs Helu and Evan Royster because of their injured and ineffective 2012 campaign behind 6th round rookie sensation Alfred Morris. The Redskins...
