Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu and defensive tackle Chris Neild both missed at least some of practice at training camp on Monday with injuries.
Redskins head coach Mike Shannahan reported that Helu has Achilles tendinitis and did not practice while Neild missed most of practice and will have an MRI done on his knee.
Helu was the leading rusher for the Redskins in 2011 with 640 yards and two rushing touchdowns as a rookie. Helu is also a threat to catch passes out of the backfield and ranked fourth on the Redskins with 379 yards on 49 catches last season. Helu played in 15 games, starting five, in 2011.
Neild is in his second season with Washington as well. As a backup nose tackle last season, Neild played in 16 games (zero starts). He made 10 tackles (four solo) and recorded two sacks as a rookie.
