Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower is not going to Miami for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

The Patriots announced today that Hightower has been ruled out with a knee injury.

Hightower has played 67 percent of the Patriots’ defensive snaps, as well as 12 percent of their special teams snaps, this season.

To win the AFC East, the Patriots need to beat the Dolphins and have the Bills lose to the Jets. Otherwise, the Patriots will be a wild card team.

The Patriots are six-point favorites at Miami.

  1. It’s the last game of the season and a playoff birth is on the line for the Dolphins….so you know they will get blown out by the Patriots!

    Miami is mathematically eliminated.

  3. Hopefully this is not a serious injury. The run defense has struggled enough already. Without Hightower coming downhill, it’s gonna get worse. Miami isn’t Indy or Tennessee when it comes to running the ball but they have been better as of late. Given New England’s struggles in Miami in the past, 6 points on the road against a division rival with a good defense, when you have a rookie QB, seems like a lot to give up.

  4. Don’t overrate the Patriot struggles. They tripped up a few times but mostly it was the last game of the season and they were playing the scrubs while getting ready to pick up another Lombardi.

    Yep. Over 400 yards passing with 3 TDs an Int. The Bucs won. Once again you will blame Brady for evert loss or near loss yet never credit him when he leads the te as m to victory. This just tells a lot about yourself.
