In your story on breakout rookie running backs (Runaway Rookies, Oct. 6), how about a mention of Arizona's Tim Hightower? A much-needed complement to Edgerrin James, the rookie had five touchdowns through six games, and he has given the Cards something they needed badly: a goal line presence.

For your list of standout rookies at other positions, how about Redskins safety Chris Horton? A seventh-round pick (249th overall), he was barely projected to make the practice squad. But through four games this season he had three picks and a fumble recovery, and was leading the NFC in takeaways.
