CSN Washington dot com rob we saw three different -- flat here what does that look like what happened this season. Well you're asked me today August 1 I'd say probably all three because all three have proven they can do the job. But none of that three of proven they can do the job over -- full season. -- prepare for the opening game September ninth in New Orleans Mike Shanahan has to wait and see if one guy. Can become a -- guy. -- with a little over a month before the opener the Redskins don't have a battle for the starting running back job. As much of the competition and. Those guys netted them they -- -- in my -- sort of some work cut out. Won't heal theory is injuries aren't supposed to cause you don't lose a starting job. But nine months after ACL surgery Tim Hightower knows he has to prove he's ready to even get back on the field. It Carmona feel I'm gonna give you once in desperate you can expect this in my teammates and expect -- a final but I don't want to end. Someone else going to be in this period regardless of that practice game pre season post season season if I can give once and I'm on the field. -- high tower started last season as the starter Kevin -- Esther finish there with back to back 100 yard games. It's easy to see what makes Penn State's all time leading rusher so special. Well you can -- and the guy can make people miss the reason why average over six yards a carry for four years loses. Do you make the first guy miss how many guys can do that do you use that that people kind of question you over the years that you keep producing. I try to ignore the people who kind of down the you know I think it's they're kind of as motivation also.

Obviously now Jill hi towers brought in to be the starting running back. And you know he says right now his mind is in the right place the question becomes how is the knee. He told us that he spoke to his name before training camp since follow my mind to make sure we're on the same page tried to get a comment from the need a bit. We're not talking yeah I am Matheson and he's done this isn't the brace at the little -- to speak from under the breaks rightly talking just couldn't hear and -- the great drive. -- I'm very update on the status of Jammal Brown. There is an update is chick Hernandez treated out last night Jammal Brown has seen a doctor about the left -- does not need surgery which. Let me it got surgery last year but. He also that I looked at the right hip which has been bothering. Jammal Brown as well so right now they wait and see you remains on the pup list whether or not he'll be ready for the opening game against the Saints. They have to wait and see obviously needs to be out on the field. Practicing before then three guys also sat out today Ryan Kerrigan London Fletcher and Stephen Bowen and -- to use a hockey term.
