NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Patriots ILB Dont'a Hightower is believed to have suffered a sprained MCL Sunday night against Denver.
The injury is not season-ending, but Hightower should miss at least a couple weeks. New England struggled against the run once Hightower left Sunday night, and they were gashed by Frank Gore in a game Hightower missed earlier this season. With Hightower out, the health of Jamie Collins (illness) now takes on even more importance. Nov 30 - 8:50 AM
