Could Tim Hightower be the Redskins Starting RB in 2012?

According to, the Washington Redskins may actually prefer to start RB Tim Hightower over Roy Helu this season, while limiting Helu’s touches to something in the range of 10-15 per game.

The Redskins are apparently concerned about Helu’s durability, which is interesting when you consider that Hightower is coming off of a torn ACL. Washington has been very supportive of Hightower since acquiring him last year, but it’s really hard to say whether or not he’ll be able to return to his previous form following the serious knee injury.

Helu has earned at least a complimentary role in the team’s offense, but Mike Shanahan loves to leave people guessing in regards to his backfield, so anything could happen.
