In 2008, the Redskins finished as the NFL's eighth-ranked rushing attack. Clinton Portis ended the season with 1,487 rushing yards, good for fourth in the league. Things haven't been the same since.
Last season, the team brought in running back Tim Hightower, who backed up Edgerrin James in Arizona all the way to Super Bowl XLIII. It looked as though Washington finally had moved on from injury-prone Portis, who was limited to 13 games between 2009-10. But just five games into the 2011 campaign, Hightower went down with a torn ACL and missed the rest of the year.
It seems history may be repeating itself.
