Draft Scout Tim Hightower News
01/03/16 - RB Tim Hightower played well down the stretch, after leading rusher Mark Ingram was ruled out for the season with a shoulder injury, and he could be in the mix next season. Ingram was having a breakout season before injuring his shoulder in early December. Hightower took over as the primary ball-carrier and scored three touchdowns in the final two games. Hightower had 66 yards on 16 carries with a touchdown in the win over the Falcons. He also caught five passes for 41 yards.
12/13/15 - RB Tim Hightower had been out of the league for three years and had no meaningful carries this season before Sunday. But he stepped in as starter for the injured Mark Ingram and rushed for 85 yards on 28 carries and what turned out to be the winning touchdown.
11/16/15 - RB Tim Hightower had something to smile about Sunday. Hightower, who was re-signed by the Saints two weeks ago when Khiry Robinson was lost for the season with a fractured ankle, carried a ball in an NFL regular-season game for the first time since 2011.
Hightower eventually rushed for 46 yards on 11 carries in spelling Mark Ingram, who was lost for a time during Sunday's game because of a shoulder injury.
Ironically, his last carry in a real game had come with the Redskins before he suffered a devastating knee injury that sidelined him for the 2012-14 seasons. He was signed by the Saints in the spring and initially made the team on the final cut, only to be released after the first game.
"I'm trying to be thankful," Hightower said after Sunday's game. "It's really kind of hard to enjoy it."
11/15/15 - RB Tim Hightower, who re-signed with the Saints 12 days ago, got his first NFL carries since 2011 in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Hightower had 11 carries, all in the second half, and finished with 46 yards. He was held to no gain, however, on a key third-and-1 at the Washington 31 in the third quarter.
11/03/15 - RB Tim Hightower, who was released by the Saints in early September, will take Khiry Robinson's spot on the 53-man active roster.
