Redskin Roy Helu: Slow recovery for running back with turf toe | WashingtonExaminer.com
"I can jog and do gassers across the field," he said. "That’s stuff I can do without pain. I haven’t tried to sprint yet. It’s random when the pain comes; it’s mostly when I get on my toes, which is a sprinter’s position."

Updated Washington Redskins Cap Situation: | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
The Washington Redskins currently don't have under contract their starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus, left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, free safety Madieu Williams, nickel corner Cedric Griffin, and punter Sav Rocca as well as key reserves DL Kedric Golston, QB Rex Grossman, LB Lorenzo Alexander, DL Chris Baker and OL Jordan Black. Also restricted free agents are not included which includes FB Darrel Young, TE Logan Paulsen and top reserve OLB Rob Jackson. If the Redskins were to re-sign all of these guys to very moderate deals, it would be an additional $8-12 million against the cap. This means the Redskins would need to clear at least $12 million from the payroll, even if they don't upgrade a single position (outside the draft).

Mike Shanahan waiting to make decisions on coaching staff
"I don’t talk about the players or coaches for a while. It’s part of the evaluation process. … You can talk about the coaches. You always want your coaches to, hopefully, if they’re interested in a head coaching job or they’re offered a head coaching job or if you have an assistant that might be offered a coordinator’s job, sometimes I’ve entertained that in the past even if they’re under contract, because you want the best for them. Other times, you get a top assistant that you’re paying pretty good money to and you made a commitment to them and you want them to stay even though a coordinator’s job may be offered. There’s a lot of things that go on in the offseason with coaching staffs and the players – the free agents. You’re always trying to do what’s best for the organization, sometimes what’s best for the person as well, if they’ve made a commitment to you."
