Redskins release Tim Hightower

4for4 - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins have released RB Tim Hightower.

Fantasy Impact: 

Well, this clears things up a bit. Hightower was trying to return from ACL surgery, but couldn't do enough to outplay Evan Royster, Roy Helu or Alfred Morris. Helu probably has the most talent, but the team doesn't think he can hold up as a three-down running back. Royster appeared poised to start in Week 1 before his injury, but Morris has been getting a lot of work lately and may end up starting. The Shanahanigans continue.
