Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Won't require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower won't need offseason surgery on his knee or shoulder, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Hightower dealt with a myriad of injuries throughout the 2016 season but still played in 13 regular-season games and four playoff games. It's an encouraging sign that he won't need surgery and he should be a full participant in offseason practices.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hightower (shoulder) is questionable to play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Falcons.

Hightower played through the same shoulder injury in the AFC championship game. Given the absence of any reported setbacks, look for him to do the same Sunday.

Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower (shoulder) will be active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Hightower was able to participate in practice throughout the week, so he'll ultimately be good to go for the AFC championship game. Expect him to start at middle linebacker per usual as the Pats look to shut down the Steelers' potent offense.
