ESPN's Adam Caplan reported that Raiders running back Roy Helu recently had surgery for a "hip impingement," and that he's expected to have the same surgery on his other hip. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Helu signed a two-year, $4.1 million contract prior to the start of last season. He was to complement Latavius Murray and possibly be the third-down back. Unfortunately, he was only able to appear in nine games. He rushed 17 times for 39 yards and caught nine passes for 75 yards with one receiving touchdown. The Raiders' front office has made the run game a priority this offseason and been discussing bringing in another back. Helu has a cap hit of $2 million for the 2016 season, so it seems highly unlikely that he would make the roster after two offseason hip surgeries.
