Latest NewsPatriots | Dont'a Hightower to miss several months (Thu Mar 26, 07:52 PM) - New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) will miss six to seven months after undergoing surgery on a torn right labrum. Our View: Hightower's availability for the beginning of the regular season could now be in jeopardy. We could see the Patriots decide to put him on the PUP list to begin the season. If that happens, Hightower would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. After that time, the Patriots would have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate Hightower or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.
