Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 17: Roy Helu, London Fletcher Limited In Wednesday Practice

The Washington Redskins practiced Wednesday in advance of their season finale Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles and released the week's first injury report.

No Redskins player sat out of practice entirely, though the team elected to limit five players' participation due to injury: right tackle Jammal Brown (hip), defensive end Adam Carriker (chest), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), running back Roy Helu (toe, knee), and wide receiver Donté Stallworth (ankle).

"We'll just judge him as the week goes on," coach Mike Shanahan said of Helu, who's started five games for the Redskins in 2011. In Helu's absence on Saturday, fellow rookie Evan Royster made his first career start and gained 132 yards on 19 carries.

Three other injured Redskins appear on Wednesday's report, though they participated fully in the day's practice: safety DeJon Gomes (knee), wide receiver Niles Paul, and punter Sav Rocca.
