Do the Redskins’ coaches favor Tim Hightower as the starting running back? We hear that might be the case, even though he is coming off a torn ACL. Durability concerns might keep Roy Helu a 10-15-snap player, and Evan Royster lacks the speed to be anything but a situational back. Even with rookie Alfred Morris (the only healthy back) impressing in minicamps, it appears to be Hightower’s starting job to lose.
Let the Shanahanigans begin. Hightower is less than a year removed from a torn ACL and there is already speculation that he's going to start over the very productive Roy Helu. (We're guessing that PFW meant 10-15 touch -- not 10-15 snap -- player.)
