- 49ers’ RB Hightower making a healthy contribution
By Eric Branch - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
49ers’ RB Hightower making a healthy contributionIn 2012, Tim Hightower’s first season out of the NFL, teams regularly contacted his agent to inquire about his services.[...] by 2014, when Hightower still wasn’t fully recovered from the knee injury he sustained in 2011, the calls nearly stopped.[...] Hightower, 31, took advantage of it after going more than four years — 1,484 days to be precise — between regular-season carries after he sustained a torn ACL with Washington on Oct. 23, 2011.Before signing with the 49ers in April, Hightower, who ranks 19th among active running backs in rushing touchdowns (32), enjoyed a two-season career renaissance with the Saints.With the 49ers, he’s expected to assume a backup role behind Carlos Hyde and fight for carries with a group that includes rookie fourth-round pick Joe Williams.Did he ever experience an I-did-it emotional moment after he finally returned to the NFL in 2015?Hightower says his arduous four-year absence created a resolve and he now wants to end his career “stronger than when he started.”[...] that would be an accomplishment given the promising start to his unique career.Hightower went to the Super Bowl as a rookie with the Cardinals in 2008, ranked second among running back in receptions (63) in 2009 and averaged a career-best 4.8 yards a carry in 2010 before his knee injury the next season sent him on a odyssey searching for medical answers.During his ordeal, Hightower underwent multiple surgeries, while accumulating countless frequent-flyer miles.Hightower spent his abbreviated 2011 season as the starter in Washington with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was the offensive coordinator, and 49ers running backs coach Bobby Turner.Hightower says he was fortunate to learn from legends at an early age:[...] as far as the running backs and our meetings, he brings it every day.[...] Turner makes it clear that Hightower was signed to play meaningful snaps, not merely be a mentor.
