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...

Will Roy Helu Jr. play the role of third-down back for Redskins?

The Redskins have no questions about their starting running back. Alfred Morris has recorded back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and is coming off of a Pro Bowl appearance as he enters his third year in the NFL. But, things remain unsettled at third-down back. Washington’s coaches need to settle on a back who can effectively pick up blitzes, and also provide a spark as a speedy change...

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. I believe Gruden is thinking about it in terms of Roy Helu Jr. vs. Darrell Young.  Darrell Young wins because he is a much better blocker (he can take...

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...

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...
