Redskins | HC explains decision on Ryan Torain

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan explained the decision to released RB Ryan Torain Tuesday, Dec. 27. "What you look for is consistency at every position," Shanahan said. "The people that are consistent get more opportunities. If you're not consistent, you don't get as many opportunities to show us what you can do. But you mentioned Ryan had a big game - that was one of the reasons he's had a chance to get some reps. I think (RB Roy Helu Jr.) has taken advantage of those opportunities more than Ryan has. (RB Evan Royster) obviously this week against a pretty good defensive front - took advantage of an opportunity."
