The Redskins will reportedly release Hightower (knee), the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

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.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Tim Hightower.

2012

Hightower racked up 399 yards over five games last year, which looks even better when you consider he left two of the contests early. He predictably got just 3.8 YPC, but the Redskins were clearly committed to him as their lead back until a Week 7 ACL tear ended his season. Heís expected to be healthy for 2012, and he re-signed with Washington, where heíll compete with Roy Helu and Evan Royster for touches. It may sound absurd, but Hightower could easily enter the year once again the teamís starter, as Mike Shanahan really values his intangibles. On a Redskins offense that added a lot of parts in the offseason, pay attention to who looks like the leader in the RB clubhouse this summer. A true feature back could put up big numbers in a Shanahan offense that now has Robert Griffin at quarterback. Washingtonís backfield last season combined for 2,240 yards from scrimmage.

2011

Hightower got a career-high 4.8 YPC last season, but his activity in the passing game decreased greatly (his six drops were second most among all running backs), and he lost four fumbles for the second straight year. That was enough for the Cardinals, who traded Hightower to the Redskins for Vonnie Holliday and a late-round pick. With the new situation comes the opportunity to compete for the starting job against Ryan Torain and rookie Roy Helu, Jr. If Hightower can win the job outright, history is on his side as a feature back in Mike Shanahan's offense.

2010

Hightower received the same number of carries last year as during his rookie campaign, but thanks to his YPC jumping from 2.8 to 4.2 and improvement as a receiver, he was much more productive, starting over rookie Chris Wells the entire regular season. Hightower fumbled five times and, put bluntly, isnít nearly the same class of runner as Wells. Hightower remained with the first unit in May minicamps, as coach Ken Whisenhunt continued to overrate seniority, but itís only a matter of time until he becomes a clear backup, likely well before Week 1 of the 2010 season. Hightower can remain a factor at the goal line, however, as heís converted 15 of his 30 attempts for scores the last two years. With Kurt Warner retired and Anquan Boldin leaving, the Cardinals figure to become more run heavy, so Hightower should maintain relevance.

2009

Hightower scored 10 touchdowns during his rookie season, but ultimately his performance had to be considered a major disappointment. He wrestled the starting job away from Edgerrin James midseason but ended up getting an ugly 2.8 YPC Ė the second worst mark in all of football. He relinquished the starting job back to James by seasonís end, and while Hightower excels in short-yardage situations (8-for-13 at the goal line last year), Arizona didnít think twice about drafting Chris Wells at the end of the first round. Wells may be a rookie, but heís the heavy favorite to start, relegating Hightower to backup duty.

2008

Hightower will battle for a backup running back job this summer. If he makes the team, his best bets for fantasy value are if starter Edgerrin James gets hurt or if Hightower uses his big frame to win a goal-line role.
