RB Hightower Has Torn ACL, Will Miss Bills Game
As the Buffalo Bills prepare for the Washington Redskins this week, they won't have to worry about game-planning for starting running back Tim Hightower.
The Redskins announced Hightower suffered a torn ACL on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, ending his season. Hightower injured his knee during the third quarter, and needed to be carted off the field.
Ryan Torain and rookie Roy Helu will likely shoulder the load in Hightower's absence.
Washington will also be without wide receiver Santana Moss this weekend. He has a broken hand that will require him to miss five-to-seven weeks according to the team. He had surgery to repair the fracture on Monday.
Former Bills linebacker and current Redskins player London Fletcher pulled a hamstring against the Panthers. According to the team, they have yet to determine whether or not he'll miss any time.
The Bills take on the Redskins Sunday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
