The Washington Post - [Full Article]

Ryan Torain appears most likely to start for the Redskins now that Hightower is out, and the third-year pro said he’s eager to prove he can consistently execute at a high level and that his big game against the Rams a couple weeks ago wasn’t a fluke. Rookie Roy Helu will be counted on to provide a spark, and both he and Torain have a tall task in matching Hightower’s pass-protection prowess.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Redskins have been coy when addressing the "starter" at RB, which is a little worrisome for owners counting on Ryan Torain this week. We're likely to see a RBBC with Torain and Helu going forward. Given Torain's history of fragility, Helu is a good bet to be the featured RB for the Redskins at some point this season.
