With training camp opening up, the Washington Redskins are looking for veteran Tim Hightower to be the starter coming out of the back field even though he’s coming off ACL surgery.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins are concerned about Roy Helu’s durability. Head coach Mike Shanahan needs him to prove that he can be given a heavier load without getting injured, before he’s ready to name Helu the starter.
“Redskins coaches still have some questions about Helu,” wrote Jones. ”For one, although he offers that threat to break a big run, he struggles to consistently pick up chunks of yardage. The Redskins would like to see him do more than just take what’s there and be able to make something out of nothing. There also are questions about Helu’s durability. Injuries hampered him late in the season and kept him out of most of this offseason’s OTAs. Shanahan said the questions about Helu’s durability will remain until he can prove otherwise.”

What is disturbing about this is Colt Brennan survived a near fatal car accident not to long ago, so more than anyone he should know the dangerous of driving while impaired.

Training camp starts Thursday for the Washington Redskins and I expect to see many of you out there. It will be the first time we've seen the full team since their season finale, on the first of January. As a training camp preview, we'll go over some of the players and battles you'll want to watch for.

The Redskins waived Chase Minnifield on Tuesday, but they'll try to bring him back by adding him to their injured reserve list if he goes unclaimed. Minnifield had knee surgery prior to the draft and suffered a setback that required another procedure recently. The injury will sideline him for the entire 2012 season. Minnifield was in contention for a roster spot and had been...

Regardless of what the Capitals, Nationals, or Wizards do…. DC is a Redskins town.
The Redskins fan base (which I am a part of) is a large and committed one. With those great qualities though comes a lot of delusion (which is a group I am not a part of). The Redskins have reason for excitement — actually having what seems to be...
It looks like Adidas is hitting the airwaves hard with their new potential superstar Robert Griffin III. Not sure what to make of this commercial as I think it is a little creepy but I understood the concept. With Cam Newton and now Robert Griffin III, it seems rookie and sophomore players are gaining more and more commercial attention in the NFL.
I actually agree with New York Giants...
Shanny’s got my back Juan…
The Redskins backfield will be a fantasy nightmare, until Shanny and Son decide on a back. Good luck with that. Apparently, Timmy Hightower “looked good” today. Right. It’s anyone’s guess who will start in their backfield, but I’m still going Helu, for now.

Magic Johnson uploaded this photo of himself with two of the more polarizing owners in the NFL to his Twitter account. I’ve yet to figure out the context of the pic, or even whose boat this might be on. All I know is, Magic Johnson seems like a genuinely nice guy, Jerry Jones is slowly morphing into a beautiful, elderly Dutch woman...
