Skins believe RB Hightower has a torn ACL

Chris Russell on Twitter - [Full Article]

Multiple sources tell ESPNRadio980 that the Redskins & medical staff strongly believe that Tim Hightower has a torn ACL, MRI in AM.

Fantasy Impact: 

Unfortunately for Hightower, this would somewhat clear up the Skins RB situation a bit. Injury-plagued Ryan Torain would be in store for more work and Roy Helu now becomes a guy to target if he's still on your waiver wire, as he could eventually take over the job.

More likely to come later today...
