Who played how much for the Redskins against the Giants? Rich Tandler takes a look.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan talked about Alfred Morris and Helu providing "a pretty good one-two punch," but the team's rushing attack is back to being three-pronged. The renewed involvement of quarterback Robert Griffin III is the third prong and, Helu agreed, the facet that makes it all work.
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.
It was the first week of Washington Redskins training camp when Alfred Morris entertained the question. Darrel Young was hurt, and the unassuming sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic was asked if he had been asked by the coaching staff to fill in at fullback.
Pierre Garcon tried playing through a foot injury that began during the preseason, but despite missing four regular-season games so far, the Washington Redskins wide receiver is not ready to consider surgery to fix the problem.
Back in the state in which he grew up and played college football, Alfred Morris found a comfort zone quickly.
Ryan Grant had already worked out for the Bears and was in Chicago on the way to take a physical when he had to make a choice. Along with that possibility, the Washington Redskins put in an offer.
Veteran running back Ryan Grant was at Redskins Park on Tuesday and was expected to sign with Washington, a source confirmed.
Taking a look at the Redskins' offense in their 40-32 win over the Saints in Week 1.
Alfred Morris said he was "in awe" of the situation. He didn't have the same spotlight on him as Robert Griffin III, but the Washington Redskins' sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic still was making his NFL debut in front of 70,000-plus fans at the Superdome.
"Well," he said, "I do have a lighter complexion."
"He's such a big threat when we do get the ball in the read-option game," Helu said.
