    It seems almost a decade has passed since Roy Helu Jr. tallied 1,019 total yards on 200 touches as a rookie in 2011.

    The impressive Nebraska product was hampered by an injury-riddled sophomore NFL season in which he took part in only three games before being placed on injured reserve.

    Helu Jr. surmised that the cause of his trying series of leg injuries was due to tight muscles. To combat the issue, the third-year Washington Redskins rusher has undergone a unique method of treatment known as dry needling, which is designed to relieve tension in the troubled areas. According to Helu Jr., the treatment, which is similar to acupuncture, has proven helpful.
