Description: Washington halfback Evan Royster suffered what looked like a serious ankle injury Sunday against Kansas City.
Insight: He had to be carted off the field. With only three games left on the schedule after this week, it's possible we've seen the last of Royster in 2013.

Description: Redskins backup running back Evan Royster is fighting for a roster spot and presented a solid case to stay in the first preseason game - 14 carries for 62 yards.
Insight: Last season at this time he was thought of as the front-runner for the starting spot, but rookie Alfred Morris changed all that. Roy Helu appears to be the leader for backup and the receiving role with Royster battling Keiland Williams, Jawan Jamison and Chris Thompson behind him.

Description: Redskins backup running back Evan Royster has a strained patellar tendon and is considered day-to-day, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times.
Insight: Mike Shanahan has been uncharacteristically predictable with his running game in the first three weeks, giving Alfred Morris 61 carries to Royster's five and Roy Helu's two. Royster's injury further solidifies Morris as the team's No. 1 back but with Shanahan at the helm things could change at any time.

Description: Halfback Evan Royster is listed atop the Redskins depth chart at running back, though even he is unsure how long that distinction will last according to the Washington Post.
Insight: If Royster does have an edge over Roy Helu and Alfred Morris, it's very slim and even if Royster is the starter, that doesn't necessarily mean that he'll see more carries than the other two Washington backs. From a fantasy point of view, it's probably best to avoid this situation if you can help it.

Description: Redskins running back Evan Royster did the most work with the first team in the team's first preseason game. He rushed seven times for 21 yards.
Insight: With Roy Helu dealing with an Achilles problem and supposed starter Tim Hightower still out from last season's ACL surgery, it appears that Royster will win the opening day job by default. Whether he keeps it is another question.

Description: In the first preseason game, Redskins running back Evan Royster did the most work with the first team. He rushed seven times for 21 yards
Insight: With supposed starter Tim Hightower still recovering from last year's knee injury, the starting job appears to be Royster's to lose. Still, predicting the fantasy value of any Mike Shanahan running back has been a major headache since heydays of Terrell Davis. Draft Royster, Roy Helu and Hightower at your own risk.

Description: According to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, the Redskins think Evan Royster has a "higher ceiling" than Roy Helu.
Insight: With Tim Hightower still recovering from last year's knee injury, Royster will start at running back in the team's first preseason game Thursday against Buffalo. Graziano said Royster looked like the best back in camp when he was there last week. You really never know what Mike Shanahan is going to do with his running back rotation, so we'd advise you to stay away from it entirely when drafting.

Description: Redskins running back Evan Royster has been running with the first team, according to Washington Post's John Keim.
Insight: Don't laugh. So far this offseason we've heard comments that Tim Hightower and Roy Helu would be the Redskins starting running backs. It the usual Mike Shanahan shenanigans. Selecting any of the three backs is a gamble you should avoid unless absolutely necessary.
