Redskins | Tim Hightower draws praise from head coach

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said newly added RB Tim Hightower will compete for the team's starting running back job. "I like everything about him," Shanahan said. "He's a good blocker, an excellent runner. He's been very productive." RB Ryan Torain is penciled in as the team's starting running back right now, but health issues are a concern and he has yet to play a full 16-game season. Torain said competition will make them stronger.
