Running back Roy Helu ended up on the Washington Redskins' injury report this week after amassing 116 touches in the past four games. His banged up knee and toe are improving, though, ahead of Saturdays game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Washington Redskins kept finding ways to self-destruct, blowing so many chances that they found themselves trailing by eight in the fourth quarter despite amassing tons and tons of yards.
It took some jelling, but the Redskins' secondary was just starting to look comfortable without LaRon Landry during Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Reed Doughty was proving to be more than a capable fill-in at strong safety, and the defense was cruising along.
Receiver Anthony Armstrong beat cornerback Byron Westbrook for a touchdown on a deep post pattern during Washington Redskins practice Wednesday. Rex Grossman's long throw was accurate with nice touch, but more importantly it provided a learning opportunity for rookie safety DeJon Gomes.
"I was able to settle into the game, see how guys were running their routes and stuff like that, go out there and make some plays," he said. "I think I did a pretty good job after the first play. I've just got to be prepared for that situation."
"It was a freak accident, but I'm working to get better," he said. "I shall be back."
