Less than two weeks ago, Washington Redskins running back Ryan Torain had four screws inserted into the third metacarpal bone in his wrist, and the team estimated he would be out 7-10 days. Now comes news that could mean a much longer stay on the sideline for Torain. Via John Keim of the Washington Examiner:
Torain will see a specialist monday about his hand. Will know more about his status after that...#redskins
In Torain's absence other Washington running backs were able to play, and shine, in the team's 16-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Newly acquired Tim Hightower rushed for 44 yards on 10 carries, and showed himself competent in blitz pick-up. Rookie running back Evan Royster also took advantage of his opportunity, carrying the ball 15 times for 66 yards.
