Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower Among Week 5's Inactives
Left guard Logan Mankins will return to the lineup today after missing last week with a hip injury, and tight end Rob Gronkowski will play through a hip injury of his own for the second straight week.
The Patriots’ seven inactive players include tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), safety Steve Gregory (hip), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), wide receiver Julian Edelman (hand), offensive lineman Matt Tennant and defensive end Jake Bequette. Tennant and Bequette are healthy scratches.
Hightower said he was in “no pain” Friday, so his inactive status is surprising. He also said he’d be a game-time decision, and Bill Belichick had a one-way conversation with him on the practice field a few minutes later.
No players went through a workout on the field that would have indicated they were game-time decisions.
