According to ProFootballWeekly.com, the Washington Redskins might be in favor of going with Tim Hightower as their starting running back going into the season.

The Redskins may be concerned about Roy Helu’s durability, even though Hightower himself couldn’t stay healthy in 2011 after suffering a torn ACL in the middle of the season.

It also doesn’t look like the Skins will go with either Evan Royster or Alfred Morris as their starter.  Right now it’s likely Hightower’s job to lose.
