Yesterday Redskins running back Ryan Torain left practice early with what was called a "hand injury."

Last night he received an x-ray. The exact results were not published but the Redskins have said that Torain will be out for two weeks with a "wrist injury."

Torain is one of those backs who had a ton of potential but just can't seem to shake the injury bug.

Though the starting roster has not been determined it was a consensus amongst fans and those in the media that the starting position was Torain's to lose.

This injury gives an opportunity to rookie Roy Helu and newcomer Tim Hightower to shine.
