As training camp opens for the Washington Redskins, it’s pretty clear who will be the #1 running back on that Redskins depth chart.
As for #2, it looks as if the Redskins want Ryan Helu to win the 2nd tailback job and provide versatility as well as big-play speed behind obviously starter, Alfred Morris.
In order, the rotation has so far looked like this, Alfred Morris, Roy Helu, Keiland Williams, Tristan Davis, Chris Thompson and Jawan Jamison. Both Chris Thompson and Jawan Jamison are both rookies.
Last seasons performance by Alfred Morris was pretty amazing. A 6th round draft pick, becoming a starter, setting the Washington Redskins-All Time single season rushing record with 1,613 yards? On top of that he made the All-Rookie and second team All-Pro teams.
The monster of a running back is entering his 2nd year and could possibly put up better numbers than last season. So if that were to happen, do you think it’s possible for Alfred Morris to give Adrian Peterson a tight race to break the single season rushing record?
