Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower is out for the season with a torn pec.
Hightower had already been ruled out for Week 8, but he was thought to be dealing with a multiple-week injury rather than a season-ender. According to MMQB's Albert Breer, Hightower's pec was partially torn this spring, and that both dampened his free agent market and caused the Jets to pull their offer. Already struggling, this is a massive blow to New England's defense. Oct 26 - 8:33 AM
