Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs HOU (4 / 46 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu is the clear change of pace / third down back for the Redskins and looks well-suited for the role. Helu demonstrated and ability to pick up chunk yardage on the ground and through the air. He showed nice burst and vision on a draw play early in the second quarter, starting right then cutting back left through a large hole, stiff-arming one defender before finally being taken down on the right sideline after picking up 16 yards. Helu looked good running out of shotgun and showed nice quickness on a sweep to the right where he was able to get around the edge of the defense for a 9 yard gain. He piled up his 62 total yards on only six touches against a very aggressive Texans defense. However, Helu made a critical mistake when he whiffed on a punt block protection, allowing Texans rookie RB Alfred Blue to jet in and block the punt and pick it up for a TD.

2014 Week 2 vs JAX (8 / 25 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. continued to shine as the slightly more than COP back to Alfred Morris. Helu had early success running the ball in space behind nice blocking, and he showed off his toughness on a gritty 9 yard gain in the second quarter to pull the Redskins into the redzone. Helu lined up in the I-formation and was immediately hit as he ran to the left, but continued to move forward with his free arm keeping him stable. He plowed through another tackler and basically crawled for another 7 yards before finally going down. Helu was the primary back in the hurry-up offense, where his receiving skills and speed out of backfield were on display. Helu ripped off a nifty first-down catch in the waning minutes of the first half, sidestepping one defender and racing up the sideline for a first down and out of bounds to stop the clock. Helu hurt his quad late in 4th quarter, but the injury does not appear to be serious.

Redskins | Roy Helu injured (Sun Sep 14, 03:54 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (knee) suffered a left knee injury Week 2 and will not return to the game.

Our View: UDFA rookie Silas Redd moves up to backup running back for any length of time that Helu is out, and he scored in garbage time to build a little momentum today. Remember his name if Alfred Morris goes down.
