12:17 AM ET 10.12 | The Washington Redskins' ground game was one of their strengths last season. It hasn't necessarily been a weakness this year, just not one of their strengthes. Currently, their ground game ranks 17th in the NFL with a 106 yard per game average. Morris has been carrying the ground game by himself for the most part. Quarterback Robert Griffin III isn't running the ball as much as he did last year. In 2012, he rushed 41 times for 234 yards through four games. In 2013, RG3 has carried the ball 18 times for 72 yards through four games. RG3 could be reluctant to run coming off that ACL injury. To offset that the Redskins could use a jump in production from backup running back Roy Helu.

Redskins want to get Roy Helu more involved

Perhaps an afterschool class in quilting would be nice.

Bah Humbug. I picked up Helu on my team last year when the experts said he was going to be the every down back, then Morris wiped the field with him. Helu is a relief player and special teamer.

I'm not so sure that he's reluctant so much as he simply can't.

It's apparent even in his throwing mechanics that he doesn't like to put weight on his right leg.
