Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 16: Roy Helu, Jammal Brown Limited In Practice

The Washington Redskins had to limit three key players in Tuesday's practice as they gear up for Saturday's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, reports Mike Wise of the Washington Post. Coach Mike Shanahan elected to limit running back Roy Helu, right tackle Jammal Brown, and fullback Mike Sellers on Tuesday.

Helu is suffering from knee and toe injuries which limited his effectiveness in the Redskins' 23-10 victory against the New York Giants on Sunday. The rookie from Nebraska gained just 53 yards on 23 carries (2.3 yards per carry) and did not have a rush for more than eight yards in the game. Helu "went through drill work" on Tuesday, Wise says, but did not participate otherwise.

In addition, neither Brown nor Sellers practiced in full. Neither player participated in Sunday's game.

In better news, cornerback Josh Wilson, whom Shanahan described as "woozy" following a hit to the head he took against New York, passed his concussion test and practiced in full, Wise reports. Though he had to leave Washington's victory Sunday, Wilson nonetheless played a key role in the win, picking off an Eli Manning pass in the end zone for his second interception of the season, making four tackles, and breaking up three other passes.
