Following another standout performance in the season finale, Redskins running back Evan Royster has been nominated for the NFL Week 17 Rookie of the Week.
On the day, Royster rushed for 113 yards on 20 carries, and tacked on additional 52 yards with five catches. His highlight reel run of the day occurred early in the second quarter, when he took a handoff up the middle. Three cuts, four broken tackles and a career-tying 28-yard run later, Royster was finally brought down.
The Redskins have been nominated for the weekly rookie performance award on seven occasions this year, with Royster earning two nominations, running back Roy Helu earning two nominations, and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan earning three.
The three Redskins rookies have yet to bring home the hardware, but you have a chance to change that. Vote here, now and later, early and often. Voting will close on Friday morning, and the winner will be announced that afternoon.
Congratulations, Evan and good luck! Here’s a look at the Week 17 field of competition:
