Injury update: Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower activated off the PUP list, working with defensive line

The Patriots defensive captain is back with the team.

New England Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower was active at practice for the first time as he has been activated off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

And while Hightower is listed as a linebacker, MassLive’s Kevin Duffy has an interesting note:

Hightower was working with the Patriots thin group of defensive linemen and edge defenders. We’ll see what the Patriots have in mind for their big free agent re-signing.
