Latest NewsPatriots | Dont'a Hightower rehab going well (Thu Apr 16, 01:53 PM) - New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) is doing well in his rehab from surgery in early February on his shoulder, but he's likely to miss training camp this summer with a timetable for recovery around six to seven months. Hightower is hoping that he can be ready for the start of the regular season. 'Right now, I'm doing well. The doc likes everything he's seen. I just had my checkup. I'm right on track, if not better,' Hightower said. 'I'm not sure what I'm going to be able to do as far as OTAs and training camp and all that other stuff goes. But I'm looking forward to being back.' Our View: Hightower had surgery to repair a torn labrum and while rehab is going well, he may still miss OTAs....maybe even training camp. With Jared Mayo hurt (though he may be back sooner), things are a little thin, but the Pats don't want to rush him back.
