What we know about Danny Amendola, Dont'a Hightower, Patrick Chung

Dont'a Hightower has missed the last two games with a knee injury.

The New England Patriots did have a multi-score lead throughout most of Sunday's game, but the Titans managed to stay within 14 points for most of the second half, so it shouldn't be assumed that Amendola's absence was just precautionary.

In that game, both players were forced to head to the locker room long before the final whistle, due to what appeared to be reaggravations of their previous injuries. Amendola had just one catch for three yards before departing, and lost a fumble on a punt return.

The medical staff looked at Hightower's left knee before escorting him back to the locker room.

Late in the fourth quarter, Chung left the game with a hip injury.

Receiver Leonard Hankerson, who was released by the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, is also active for his first game in a Patriots uniform.
