01:29 PM ET 03.28 | While Ahmad Bradshaw is visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, the Giants are planning to check out another injured running back to see if he's healthy enough to bring to camp. Former Redskins running back Tim Hightower is expected to visit Giants this weekend, according to two sources informed of his plans. The 26-year-old was once a promising back who plowed for 23 touchdowns in his first three NFL seasons. But he hasn't played a regular season game in 17 months since tearing his left ACL in October 2011. The Giants seem set at the top of their depth chart at running back, with last year's No. 1 pick David Wilson and Andre Brown ??? a restricted free agent who has yet to sign his tender ??? set to battle for the starting job. But if healthy, the 6-foot, 220-pound Hightower could compete for the third spot with Ryan Torain (his former backup in Washington) and Da'Rel Scott, who missed most of last season after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
