Hightower recorded two solo tackles and a sack during Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins.
Hightower contributed one of New England's five sacks, though that wasn't enough to leave the Patriots with a victory. It was Hightower's first sack of the season, and he'll look to keep it going in a pivotal matchup with the Steelers on Sunday.
Hightower recorded four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
Hightower was questionable entering Sunday's game due to a knee injury but he played on nearly all of the Patriots' defensive snaps. He's averaging a little under four tackles per game and doesn't have much value in most IDP formats. Looking ahead, Hightower and the Patriots take on the Jets in Week 12 after a Week 11 bye.
Hightower (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Tennessee.
Hightower played through his knee injury last week and didn't appear overly hampered by the ailment. He'll see his usual role as a starting linebacker for New England.
Hightower (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.
Hightower was limited in practice all week, and still appears to be nursing a lingering hamstring issue. The star linebacker was able to play through the injury in Week 9, and will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.
Hightower recorded four tackles (two solo) in Sunday's win over the Packers.
Hightower had a modest performance Sunday after sitting out New England's game in Week 8 due to a knee injury. He saw his typical workload and didn't appear hampered by the injury at all. Looking ahead, Hightower and the Patriots will take on the Titans in Week 10.
