Hightower caught 10 of his 29 targets for 167 yards across 13 games during the 2020 season. Since Hightower often functioned as a downfield threat for Philadelphia, he didn't draw many high-percentage targets as a rookie, though he didn't help himself by dropping three passes. Hightower did most of his damage in the first half of the season when many of the Eagles' receivers were banged up, but he became a healthy scratch for three of Philadelphia's last four games, with fellow rookie Quez Watkins passing him up on the depth chart. Hightower will almost certainly have to fight for a roster spot in training camp this summer.
Hightower (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Cowboys, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The rookie wideout has been a healthy scratch for three consecutive games, a status that was seemingly even more of a certainty this week with DeSean Jackson (ankle) being activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Hightower (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The rookie is a healthy scratch for the second straight game as the Eagles move forward with Quez Watkins and Travis Fulgham as their No. 4 and No. 5 receivers against Arizona.
Hightower (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Saints. The rookie had played a combined 37 snaps over the previous two games, but with the Eagles receiving corps back to full health save for DeSean Jackson (IR, ankle), Hightower will be inactive for Jalen Hurts' first NFL start. The Boise State product's next opportunity to garner active status will come in a Week 15 road battle versus the Cardinals.
Hightower didn't catch his two targets during Sunday's 30-16 loss at Green Bay. The 24-year-old played 18 of 62 offensive snaps but was unable to make an impact in the passing game. Hightower has only one reception for one yard since Week 7.
