Mike Shanahan has decided on who will start at running back for the Washington Redskins in their season opener against New Orleans on Sept. 9, but he intends to keep it a secret until gameday.
On thing is certain: It won't be Tim Hightower, who coaches considered the most complete running back entering training camp. Hightower was released during Friday's final cuts.
"A guy like Tim, I think the world of," Shanahan said Saturday afternoon. "He might be back [with us] sometime this year, but you've got to cut down. You've got to make the decision that you think is best for your football team. We went with three running backs and a fullback, but it was a tough decision."
