You talk about a change of pace? Throw him in there for 10-15 carries a game.
Well he did miss the entire pre-season, and Shanahan has made it very clear players don't play until he feels they are in "game shape". That, and it was said on the Skins pre-game radio show that Shanahan called out Hightower last week during the monday night game. Apparently he told Hightower to cut out the slipping and tippy toeing or Torain will be put in. So Hightower was put on a short leash starting last week. And Hightower wasn't very productive to start this game, and Torain might have taken Hightowers spot.
