Per a tweet from the man himself, Tim Hightower reported that he is back with the Washington Redskins.
Last we heard, the Redskins were "still in play" for the 25 year old running back following his visit with the New England Patriots.
However, tonight Hightower sent this tweet out over the twitter-waves:
"@Tim_Hightower: I'm baaaaaaaaack"
The tweet also included a picture of himself in a Redskins hat.
Last October against the Carolina Panthers, Hightower tore his left ACL on a run in the third quarter. He had to have surgery done to repair the knee a couple weeks later. The injury caused him to miss the entire season.
Prior to the injury, Hightower had 84 carries for 321 yards and one touchdown.
Hightower played three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals before joining the Redskins last offseason.
Hightower is a very reliable back and if the report is true, and it's from a very reliable source, he will certainly be a difference maker and will be an excellent compliment to Roy Helu Jr.
Stay tuned for details as they arrive.
