The New Orleans Saints are bringing back running back Tim Hightower, coach Sean Payton announced during an interview on WWL Radio Monday night.

"We felt like Tim would give us some first and second down versatility," Payton said on the show. "He had a good training camp and he's in great shape."

Hightower's return comes after RB Khiry Robinson suffered a season-ending tibia injury in Sunday's win against the New York Giants.

Hightower signed with the Saints during the offseason and made the initial 53-man roster. He was released prior to the team's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals.

During the preseason, Hightower had 96 rushing yards on 29 carries. He also caught three balls for 19 yards.
