Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) was on the field for 41 of 57 defensive snaps in Sunday's 51-17 win over the Jaguars, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Hightower and Jamie Collins (47 snaps) continue to head the Patriots' linebacking corps in terms of playing time. Hightower was credited with one tackle in Week 3. Entering the contest, he had recorded 20 tackles over the Patriots' first two games, so it's reasonable to expect a statistical bounce-back once the Patriots return to action following their Week 4 bye.
