Evan Royster RB WAS 2 Days
Redskins placed RB Evan Royster on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.
Royster's Week 14 injury appeared significant on the field, as he could put no weight on the limb afterwards. A thoroughly underwhelming talent whose prospective fantasy value was always tied directly to the Shanahans' running scheme, Royster will be no lock to make Washington's 53-man roster in 2014.

Evan Royster was forced from Sunday's game against the Chiefs with an ankle injury.
Royster could put no weight on his ankle as he was helped off the field, and was immediately carted to the locker room. It had the looks of a serious injury. Seeing time at fullback with Darrel Young inactive, Royster had one catch for three yards before going down.
Evan Royster RB WAS 18 Days
Evan Royster has appeared in just seven games this season, recording zero carries.
He's Washington's No. 3 tailback behind Alfred Morris and Roy Helu, who have both stayed healthy. Royster hasn't so much as played an offensive snap this year. He does have one tackle on special teams, but isn't a core special teamer for Washington. Royster is under contract for $645,000 in 2014.

The Washington Post projects Evan Royster to lose his roster spot to Keiland Williams.
Ouch. Royster was the Redskins' nominal third-down back last season, but failed to make any sort of a positive impact. Williams appeared in 14 games between the Redskins and Lions, but notched just two carries. Both players contribute on special teams. The Post also has the Redskins cutting rookies Jawan Jamison and Chris Thompson.

The Washington Post confirms Redskins third-year RB Evan Royster is on the roster bubble in training camp.
Royster was seen as the favorite to start in many circles for much of 2012 training camp, but Alfred Morris ran with the tailback job and is now entrenched. Royster offers little passing-down ability, and does not contribute on special teams. The Redskins also added two running backs in April's draft.

CSN Washington considers RB Evan Royster on the roster bubble.
Royster had just 23 carries as a backup to Alfred Morris last season and will compete for a roster spot with Roy Helu (Achilles', toe) and fifth-round RB Chris Thompson. Seventh-round pick Jawan Jamison is a candidate for practice squad.

Evan Royster rushed twice for nine yards in Washington's Week 17 win over the Cowboys.
Alfred Morris' handcuff and Washington's usual third-down back, Royster will finish 2012 with just 23 rushes for 88 yards. He added 15 catches for 109 yards. With Morris now established as one of the league's top backs, Royster's Dynasty league value is hazy bordering on nonexistent.
