Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Records 61 tackles in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

During the 2015 regular season, Hightower was on the field for 54.2 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

As the report notes, Hightower missed four games this season, and was limited in several others, but when healthy, he's a key component in the Patriots' run defense and a serviceable IDP in the process. In 12 games this past season, Hightower managed to record 61 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dont'a Hightower (knee) is considered questionable to play Sunday against the Jets.

Hightower has been limited throughout the week due to a sprained MCL, an ailment he played through in last week's win over the Titans. At this point, it seems likely he'll take the field again, considering he was also limited leading up to the Tennessee game.
