by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Chris Thompson and Lache Seastruck getting cut Saturday, Roy Helu is the Redskins' only proven running back "in the area of pass protection," reports the Washington Post. "Helu also is a good receiver."

Gruden admits Redskins 'need another back' on third downs
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Alfred Morris can't do it all -- that's the message sent by new Redskins coach Jay Gruden when he said "[w]e need another back to emerge as that third-down back."

ESPN took a look at the candidates to work as that third-down guy and concluded that Roy Helu is the best option. Helu not only has the size and experience to work as a third-down back but is "more than just a third-down guy" because he can handle every-down work if need be. Working in a third-down type of role last season, Helu had 62 carries for 274 yards and four touchdowns with 31 grabs for 251 yards -- an 8.1 yard average.
