Redskins | Tim Hightower chided by Mike Shanahan

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan had a discussion with RB Tim Hightower (shoulder) about the way he handled disclosure of his shoulder injury.

Hightower actually injured his shoulder in Week 1, but hid it due to playing time concerns. He aggravated the injury in Week 3. "I talked to him on the side and said, 'You've got to be a little bit more honest with me. If you're hurting, I need to know you're hurt,'" Shanahan said. "He didn't want to admit it. I think that shoulder is a lot better than it was, but looking back at it, I think he's a little more sore than he let on to."
