Redskins Vs. Eagles Score Update: Redskins Score On Long Pass To Roy Helu, Eagles Lead 10-7

For a team desperately needing a big play, rookie running back Roy Helu delivered. Helu took a short screen pass from quarterback Rex Grossman for almost 50 yards before plunging into the end zone to make the score 10-7 Eagles.

Helu ran down the field limping as he is fighting leg injuries. The run looked inspiring and featured good down field blocking from Redskins recievers. Though Helu has had limited touches today with the leg injuries, he made this one count. For the game, Helu now has more than 50 total yards and the touchdown.

Despite some poor coaching and play in the first half, the Redskins are suddenly back in the game against the Eagles. Linebacker Brian Orakpo has two sacks and a forced fumble from Eagles quarterback Michael Vick but is now out of the game with a shoulder injury. Rookie Ryan Kerrigan will be forced to step up the pressure on Vick in Orakpo's absence
