(7/13/15) Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower has declared himself ahead of schedule in his rehab from shoulder surgery and is hoping to play in the regular season opener on Sept. 10.

"Honestly, I don't have a target date," he told ESPN. "I've seen doc, and everything is going great right now. I'm right on track ... it's something that's going to take time. I can't say 'three weeks' or whatever. ... I'll just keep doing what I'm doing.

Hightower, who underwent surgery in February and was supposed to be out 6-7 months, played in 12 games last season, contributing to 89 tackles and recording a career-high six sacks.
