Redskins | Tim Hightower has torn ACL
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said RB Tim Hightower (knee) will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: Shanahan's revolving door of running backs and the fantasy uncertainty that it caused on a weekly basis will now be toned down to just Ryan Torain and Roy Helu Jr. Torain, who was a huge disappointment in Week 7 with just two carries, fits the system the best, but Helu is a must own given Shanahan's lack of loyalty in a featured back. A straight split in carries is a very real possibility. Evan Royster could further complicate the situation if he's elevated from the practice squad.
