Hightower recorded a forced fumble, a sack and six tackles Sunday against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Hightower now has 2.5 sacks on the season while averaging 4.9 tackles. However, he's increased his production lately, as he's averaging eight tackles along with his 2.5 sacks over the last five weeks, making him a borderline IDP option.

Hightower was on the field for 67 of 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Bengals, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Jonathan Freeny on IR and Jamie Collins (hip) out Sunday, Hightower was busy, en route to racking up a season-high 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks. If Collins continues to miss time, then Hightower would be worth targeting in IDP leagues.

Hightower has a slight tear of the meniscus in his knee, but is progressing nicely with his recovery, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hightower has missed the Patriots' last two contests due to the knee issue, but he could make his return Week 4 against the Bills. If this becomes the case, Elandon Roberts figures to return to his reserve role at middle linebacker.

Hightower (knee) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Hightower was limited in practice all week, leaving him as a toss up to play Week 3. This will be his second missed game since spraining his MCL in the team's Week 1 game. The added time off prior to Week 4 may be enough for him to get back on the field. Look for Elandon Roberts to see some extra time once again in Hightower's absence.
