James taking back seat to Hightower

Posted: Updated:

GLENDALE -- Tim Hightower is now the Arizona Cardinals' official featured back.

He's not a bad choice since Hightower ran for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Cards' 34-13 win over the Rams on Sunday.

The move, however, has forced former Pro Bowl running back Edgerrin James to take a back seat to the rookie.

Cards head coach Ken Whisenhunt says James will get chances to carry the ball and they are going to need him.
