Redskins mix it up in the backfield

The Washington Redskins announced today it was placing second year running back and fan favorite Roy Helu on injured reserve status. It had been reported that Helu had been suffering from an achilles injury but Helu stated on a radio interview that the problem was turf toe. Turf toe is a sprain of the ligaments around the big toe, and football running backs are among the most common people affected by it.

In his place the Skins signed former Green Bay Packer running back standout Ryan Grant. Grant had also auditioned recently for the Chicago Bears.


About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
