I like TH's attitude, great pass-pro, nice stretch runner. I hope he recovers and can stay with us, good team guy.

re: Updated: Hightower Torn ACL/Moss Out 5-7 Weeks

i liked the way he gave interviews, he was comfortable and genuinely funny on air but btw torrain, helu hightower i dont think we lose too much. he didnt have or bring any above avg talent that cant easily be replaced. his production will be equaled or probably surpassed by the next guy up.

sounded like a truly good natured "gets it" kinda a dude though . .plus home grown

This. There was never a doubt in my mind he had torn his ACL.

It never seems to fail, when there is no contact injury, it's probably pretty serious. I was pretty sure that it was an ACL when he went down holding his knee.

Hopefully, he recovers and can continue his NFL career, whether it's here or not. I've always kinda rooted for him, I hope he can get back and be productive again.

Good thing we have good depth at RB. Is Royster on the PS or is he actually on the roster?

Practice squad. He'll probably sit there since we plan on signing Larry Johnson....*runs and hides*

Seriously though, if Hightower is out Royster would probably be activated. However, we've repeatedly shown interest in Maroney it seems so maybe he's a possibility? I would lean toward Royster being activated

Yeah, definitely looked ugly.

Shame, he is a spark plug for us. We're going to miss his pass-blocking most.

For some reason, Torain is either a beast or useless in any given week. Looks like Helu might be more valuable than ever now. Lets see what he can do with more touches.

GUYS!! Let's bring back Clinton Portis.




psyche!!


I'd rather run sellers at the RB position than watch that idiot come back here.

re: Updated: Hightower Torn ACL/Moss Out 5-7 Weeks

If we're desperate for a blocking back to save Beck's life, I'd take CP back just for that role. We won't get to that point unless Helu and Royster are our only backs...which COULD happen with Torain's injury history. Yikes.

well his 2011 beasting was limited to a St. Louis defense that gave up 253 yds to Dallas' 3rd string RB.

plus, with what we've been hearing about CP's weight, he could always fill in on the Oline if necessary.

And any word on Fletch, I didn't see his injury. Also the announcers said that he had been vomitting throughout the first half as well (I think that's what they said)

Hope he's ok, and able to go going forward.
