Tim Hightower: Reportedly Will Be Released
Update: The Redskins will reportedly release Hightower (knee), the Washington Post reports.

Recommendation: Assuming the report is accurate, it's a surprising cut by the Redskins, though we suspect that Hightower's balky knee (he is coming off ACL surgery) was a factor. Where he ends up -- and when -- likely hinges on whether or not he has experienced any setbacks with his knee, something we hope to have clarification on soon. Roy Helu, Evan Royster and Alfred Morris remain in the Redskins' backfield mix, but how the team's Week 1 carries are likely to be distributed is a still cloudy situation.
