Redskins injury report: Helu remains limited

Redskins rookie running back Roy Helu said earlier Wednesday that he feels a lot better and “absolutely” expects to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. But Helu was one of five players limited in practice, according to the team’s injury report.

Helu continued to be slowed by knee and toe injuries, according to Coach Mike Shanahan, and will continue to be evaluated each day.

Also limited for the Redskins were right tackle Jammal Brown (hip), defensive end Adam Carriker (chest), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and receiver Donte Stallworth (ankle).

Full participants in practice despite injuries were safety DeJon Gomes (knee), receiver Niles Paul (shoulder) and punter Sav Rocca (ankle).

The Philadelphia Eagles were without running back LeSean McCoy (ankle) and cornerback Asante Samuel (hamstring) on Wednesday.

Limited in practice were tackle Todd Herrmans (ankle), defensive tackle Trevor Laws (knee), linebacker Brian Rolle (ankle) and defensive end Darryl Tapp (ribs).
