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.

Evan Royster (knee) was limited in Friday's practice but is listed as probable for Week 4 against the Bucs.

Royster, trying to come back from a sprained patellar tendon, appears on track to play on third downs against Tampa Bay, taking that role from Roy Helu (I.R., turf toe). Royster is worth stashing as an RB5 in fantasy leagues.
