As Kevin first mentioned in the previous post, it was confirmed by the team today that Tim Hightower did indeed tear his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. A definite setback for the team as Hightower had looked really good running the ball throughout the preseason as well as regular season games in which he was active. Santana Moss underwent surgery today and had three pins inserted into his broken left hand (sounds painful), and will miss approximately 5-7 weeks. Coach Shanahan also noted that backup QB Rex Grossman remains in the hospital with pneumonia and will likely stay in the hospital Tuesday as well. I’m curious to see if the team signs a QB from another team’s practice squad, or perhaps brings back Kellen Clemens to run drills in practice, or perhaps even suit up on Sunday as a second-stringer to John Beck in case Grossman is still ill.
