The Washington Redskins hoped to host the Minnesota Vikings in relative good health, especially when you consider that in week 16 of the NFL, few players are what most normal people would consider healthy.
The only question marks heading into Sunday were running back Roy Helu and offensive tackle Jammal Brown. Unfortunately for Washington, Helu will not be able to go with his name appearing on the Redskins' inactive list. Helu has emerged as a reliable back for the Redskins, so his absence will be felt by the offense as backup Evan Royster will start and pick up Helu's workload for the Washington running game.
Jammal Brown will be available for the Redskins to help create some running room for Royster and back up Ryan Torain. Here is the full inactive list for Washington.
