|(10/14/14) Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee) is hopeful he'll be able to return Thursday for his team's Week 7 matchup with the Jets, ESPN.com reports.
"I’m just doing what I can. Everything is holding up pretty well still. Still doing treatment, rehab, doing everything I need to do," Hightower said. "Do I think I’m going to be able to play Thursday? Again, that’s day to day. I’m holding up. All I can do is what they ask me to do and I’ll be doing it. Hopefully I’ll be out there."
Hightower missed last week's win over the Bills but was able to practice in limited fashion Tuesday. He is set to assume a bigger role on defense with Jerod Mayo lost for the season.
