Helu successfully returned to game action on Aug. 8, finishing with 57 yards on 13 carries against the Tennessee Titans. It was an important milestone for a Redskins offense that is counting on Helu to complement featured running back Alfred Morris.
Undrafted rookies' disappointment can be offset by a significant consolation prize. They have some say in which team they join. With the help of a sharp agent, they can navigate the frenzied post-draft signing period to find the best possible opportunity to eventually make a team's 53-man roster — and earn the accompanying six-figure contract.
At 3-6, the Washington Redskins were a mess. Coach Mike Shanahan talked about evaluating players and then, the next day, quickly clarified his meaning to explain he wasn't calling it a season.
It looked like the ball was in the air forever. Aldrick Robinson had to make up ground, but with no defenders within shouting distance, the Washington Redskins receiver just had to complete a little game of catch.
Robert Griffin III's first seven NFL games have been filled with memorable moments. Sunday was no exception, considering his fourth-down scramble to keep a drive alive and his perfect 30-yard throw to Santana Moss that gave the Washington Redskins a late lead.
When Fred Davis took off his gloves on the sideline Sunday, Chris Cooley had a bad feeling that the Washington Redskins' starting tight end was done for the season.
Robert Griffin III's NFL debut somehow managed to match the excessive hype that preceded this day for months. How he got to that historic perch, though, is the strongest indication this is a new version of the Redskins' offense, not the anemic ones of previous last-place seasons.
Here are some thoughts and observations from Friday afternoon's Redskins practice:
Niles Paul hasn't even played half of an NFL season yet, but he already is hearing taunts from opposing defenders. "Is that all you do is block?" Paul, the Washington Redskins' rookie receiver, recalled with a laugh this week. "I make sure I get them back for saying that."
Fred Davis, athlete that he is, typically draws positive reviews on the practice field, and the praise has been amplified this summer.
Paulsen noted that there's a balance between blocking out that fear of injury and finding a way to win a game after seven losses in a row.
"Every game you play you're not necessarily playing for the record," tight end Logan Paulsen said. "That's part of it. You're playing for the record, you're playing for the team, you're playing for your coaching staff. But always, in every single game, preseason, regular season, playoffs, you're playing for the league. You're playing for the visibility that you get every Sunday when you get out there."
