Roy Helu and Evan Royster returned to action for the Washington Redskins in the team's final preseason game and combined for three touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Helu carried the ball 15 times for 90 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Royster rushed 11 times for 40 yards and a touchdown. The Redskins dominated the game.
Analysis: The Redskins' running back situation is as muddled as any in the league right now. Mike Shanahan is going to give fantasy owners fits this season with the way he splits carries amongst his backs. Right now, Roy Helu, Evan Royster, Alfred Morris and Tim Hightower are all in the mix to receive carries. Still, it was encouraging to see Royster and Helu return from injury.
