Washington Redskins running back Tim Hightower left Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers with a knee injury, according to ESPN.
Hightower had to be helped off the field by his teammates, and even before hitting the ground on the carry he was hurt on, Hightower was clutching his knee.
The injury does not look good, which is bad news for fantasy football owners of Hightower.
Let's take a look at five replacements for Tim Hightower for your fantasy team.
DeMarco Murray is very good rookie running back for the Dallas Cowboys, and will see more carries than normal with RB teammate Felix Jones nursing an injury.
Murray also has good speed, and will be used by Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in the Dallas passing game on screen plays and short passes.
Murray had 10 carries against the Patriots in Week 6, and should see that number increase in the coming weeks.
Maurice Morris will start at running back for the Detroit Lions with starter Jahvid Best recovering from a concussion.
Morris had nine carries for 50 yards in the Lions Week 7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Detroit was down for most of the game, and had to throw often to climb back into the contest during the fourth quarter.
He has good size and strength, which makes him likely to get goal line carries, and he has enough open field skills to be used in the passing game.
Morris caught to two passes for 13 yards in Week 7.
Jackie Battle will probably be the Kansas City Chiefs starting running back for the rest of this season, while Jamaal Charles recovers from a serious knee injury.
Battle is a good strong runner who is efficient with his carries, and ran for 119 yards on 19 carries against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.
Battle is a good player to pick up off your fantasy league's waiver wire, right now.
Montario Hardesty got the start at running back today for the Cleveland Browns against the Seattle Seahawks with Peyton Hills unable to play because of an injury.
Hardesty is a good running back who should get a good amount of carries until Hillis returns to the lineup, and even when he does, Hardesty will still be a part of the Browns offense.
He also has good size and strength, making him a candidate for goal line carries.
Ben Tate had a very effective rushing day for the Houston Texans in their huge win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7, carrying the ball 15 times for 104 yards.
Tate did all of this with teammate Arian Foster rushing and receiving for 100 yards each.
The Texans know Tate is talented, and even with Foster healthy, Tate will be an important part of the Houston offense.
