Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker made the most of his opportunity late last season. Could he return as a starter in 2014?
It look like Jay Gruden knows how to utilize a fast, explosive running back and that could benefit Roy Helu Jr.
The Redskins are set at the top of their running back depth chart but the reserves could be the ones who play special teams the best.
Should the Redskins revise their offense and utilize more of a two-back attack? Tandler and Tarik ponder the question.
London Fletcher is taking a slightly lighter workload as he winds down his career.
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.
"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.
