Dont’a Hightower — Shoulder Injury — New England Patriots Odds Update

The New England Patriots don’t have many superstars on defense after the departures of Darrelle Revis, Chandler Jones, and Jamie Collins, but linebacker Dont’a Hightower is as valuable to that defense as any player in that unit. His absence could have a huge impact on the Patriots (-3) and their Super Bowl chances. After being limited in practice, will Hightower be a go for the Super Bowl?

Will Dont’a Hightower be healthy enough to play in Super Bowl 51?

No, he’s not healthy, but YES, he’ll play.

As a writer for the Boston Herald puts it, Hightower “wouldn’t miss a playoff game for anything shy of amputation,” much less the Super Bowl. Hightower has been playing with all types of injuries, not just this season but in seasons past. Despite his appearance on the team’s injury report with a lingering shoulder problem and despite his wearing a red non-contact jersey in practice, you better believe he’ll be padded up and ready to go on Sunday.
