"I feel a lot more comfortable today, whereas I didn't know anything before I got here," he said.

You're got to operate at 150 percent with your offense, because not only do you have to know it, but you have to know what to do in certain situations. That's still to come."

Why Evan Royster Could Be the Redskins Secret Weapon | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
Let me preface this by saying I fully believe that Roy Helu will be the Redskins starting running back, have the most carries as well as make his mark as a weapon out of the backfield in the passing game. While Helu may be the starter, he’s not the type of back who is going to get 20+ carries a game, even if he is fully healthy. So the depth of the running back position is key, and while it is expected to be a camp battle between Evan Royster, Tim Hightower and a couple of rookies, don’t be surprised if Royster wins the primary back-up role. Furthermore, expect Royster to force the Redskins to give him a few more touches than they typically would.
