Royster was used sparingly in 2012 due to injury. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry the previous year and was, at one time, a possible RB for the future for head coach Mike Shanahan and the Redskins. That said, he's become a forgotten man in Washington due to the emergence of Morris. 


Evan Royster on Redskins' roster


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royster put his best foot forward Thursday against Tampa Bay by rushing for 59 yards and one touchdown on just 11 carries. He was used sparingly in 2012 due to various injuries, but did average 5.9 yards a carry in more extended use the previous year.

"The only thing that’s been settled is Alf and Helu," Shanahan said Tuesday, per The Washington Post. "Everything else is up for grabs. We’ve got a good problem to have because I think there’s a bunch of guys there that can play in this league and that can help us. They’re gonna make us have to make a tough decision next week. And really, every play is gonna count for them."

With starter Alfred Morris sitting out, Helu got most of the work with the first-team offense, gaining 57 yards on 13 carries. Royster entered midway through the second quarter and gained 62 yards on 14 carries. Neither back caught a pass.
