Hightower, 2 other key Patriots return to practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Linebacker Dont’a Hightower was one of three key players to return to practice Tuesday as the Patriots prepared to head to Detroit for their third preseason game.

Starting left tackle Nate Solder and running back Mike Gillislee were also back on the field after missing time with injuries.

Hightower began the preseason on the physically unable to perform list and had only participated in light conditioning work on an auxiliary field before Tuesday. Solder had been sidelined with an undisclosed injury since Aug. 3, and Gillislee has been limited the past two weeks with a hamstring injury.
