he and davis will be key in the changed offense next year, assuming they do change it some.

I liked Helu his rookie season, but durability is something that can't be questioned in a RB. You have to rely on them. Look at Ryan Matthews.

This is very good news.


He will be fine. Expect him to be close to 100%.

“Off of an instinct that something was wrong, we went into surgery,” Helu said. “And we found out there was damaged cartilage [near the big toe] that was causing the problem, but it wasn’t showing up on anything. Thankfully we found it and now it’s gone. The road to recovery this time, since February, has been a lot better.”

Helu ran for the first time since the surgery on Tuesday, and based on how he’s feeling, he said he's aiming to be “without limitations” at the start of OTAs on May 20th.

A lot of Redskin players will be recovering from injury and/or surgery. If all return healthy....especially our QB....could be a great season.

There are a number of players returning from injuries here - Helu will hopefully show that he's able to go ...

There is little chance that RG3 will not be 100% ... almost none actually

The ONLY concern is the timing - he will be as fast, if not faster than he was - his operation and rehab have been great PLUS that stem stuff is like magic ...
This is an olympic level runner - who is very young and incredibly healthy :roll:
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in 2016
we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

I know I am wearing the glasses and drinking the Aid but, Helu if healthy is going to be the missing piece resolved; on offense.

From the various news outlets (including redskins.com) Helu is looking pretty good. He's been running, catching, and making cuts comfortably.

Hope this continues with him, even though it will mean more crow for me :)

Roy Helu has undergone 'dry needling' to help loosen the muscles in his legs.

Helu has been unable to sustain health since posting 1,019 total yards as a rookie. He blames his series of lower-body injuries on tight muscles, but adds the acupuncture-like dry needling has produced "great results." If Helu's toe is healthy, he'll have a decent shot at winning the third-down job.

Helu needs to have a brilliant showing this preseason or he's gone. If he's even par with either rookie RB, he's gone. Due to his injury history, he'd have to make it incredibiliy difficult for Mike to cut him.

The only back I can think of that has the capabilities that Helu has would be
Jawan Jamison.

If you think Helu has an injury history Jawan is in the same boat.

Despite bringing with him a rough history of injuries and currently recovering from ACL surgery, there are high hopes for Thompson. The coaching staff loves him as a prospect and his skill set fits all too well in Washington.


He does have impressive skills.

I would agree that Helu needs to have an injury free camp and preseason.

How does Chris Thompson's injury history put Jawan Jamison in the same boat as Roy Helu Jr.?

Your right it doesn't. I could have sworn it was Jawan with the injury history not Thompson. According to that article though Jawan is more of a project.

While I don’t necessarily believe he needs to beg to make the roster, I did see more than a decent number of comments a couple weeks ago implying that rookie running back Jawan Jamison was nothing more than a practice squad guy and hopeful project
