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

The Washington Redskins released their Thursday injury report in advance of Saturday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Defensive end Stephen Bowen (knee), punter Sav Rocca (left ankle), and cornerback Josh Wilson (head/chest) each practiced in full. Meanwhile, the team limited offensive tackle Jammal Brown (groin), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), running back Roy Helu (toe/knee), and fullback Mike Sellers (elbow).

Helu, the team's starting running back, struggled due to those injuries in Washington's last game, a 23-10 upset of the New York Giants. The rookie from Nebraska gained only 53 yards on his 23 carries for a 2.3 yards-per-carry average, his worst figure since replacing the injured Tim Hightower in the lineup.

The news about Wilson is more promising, as he suffered from concussion-like symptoms during the Giants game and had to leave it. But he practiced in full on Wednesday and Thursday, which means it seems likely he'll get the go-ahead to take the field Saturday against Minnesota.
