Washington Redskins Injury Report: Tim Hightower Limited

The Washington Redskins come out of their bye week relatively healthy. The only real notable injury is to starting running back Tim Hightower, who was limited today with a shoulder injury. Cornerback Phillip Buchanon was also listed on the injury report and limited with a neck injury, but as long as he can show he's in shape it sounds like he will play against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"We're going to try to evaluate him during the week to see how he practices and see how they look. If somebody looks good over the next couple of days and you have a good feeling about them, then you let them play. If not, obviously you don't," Redskins head coach Mike Shannahan told reporters after practice about Buchanon, via a team press release.

Others missing practice time were tight end Chris Cooley, who was limited with a knee injury, and wide receiver Anthony Armstrong who was limited with a hamstring injury. Fullback Darrel Young practiced in full.
