Skins RB Hightower will miss rest of season

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins running back Tim Hightower suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

'Skins head coach Mike Shanahan made the announcement at his Monday afternoon press conference, but said the club has not decided to place Hightower on injured reserve or to make any other roster adjustments.

Fantasy Impact: 

Despite the Skins not putting him on IR, fantasy owners should drop him. Ryan Torain and Roy Helu will get the work from here on out. Helu figures to have more long-term upside, while Torain will likely get more of the immediate work.
