Roy Helu’s success last week gives Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan confidence in the rookie, but it doesn’t guarantee a similar timeshare every game.
“It all depends on the flow of the game and how things are going,” Shanahan said. “I think we obviously will be more encouraged to get [Helu] in there more. But it’s just a feel with how Tim Hightower is doing, what the defense is doing and how the game goes. There’s not a lot of consistency with it. But when you have those backs and you’ve got Ryan Torain, three guys we feel are capable of being starters, you really can’t make a wrong decision.
