According to The Washington Times, Redskins running back Roy Helu is expected to be fully recovered from last year’s toe injury.
Helu will have to show the Redskins he can stay healthy this season. The good news is that he was able to make sharp cuts at the end of OTA’s this offseason.
Foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson cleared him to practice in June, and Helu proved he could sharply cut at the end of OTAs. Helu hasn’t played in a game since last September, so there’s an incentive for Shanahan to risk Helu’s health in games that don’t count.
If Helu is able to stay healthy, I truly believe he’s a better running back than Alfred Morris. He brings more to the table with his versatility.
