Dont'a Hightower returns to practice; Patriots, Rams fully healthy heading into Super Bowl LIII


ATLANTA -- Both the Patriots and Rams are fully healthy going into Super Bowl LIII.

Both teams had no players on its injury reports released Friday afternoon.

Dont'a Hightower was a full participant in practice after missing Thursday's walkthrough due to illness. Malcom Brown (calf) was limited Wednesday, but has been a full participant the last two days. Meanwhile for the Rams, kicker Greg Zuerlein and safety Blake Countless were full participants after being limited Thursday. 

“He did everything today,” Belichick said of Hightower to pool reporter Jenny Vrentras of MMQB. “You could hear him talking out there, and that’s usually a good sign with him. He has plenty of energy.”

This is the second straight year that there's been no players on the final injury report of the week.

The Patriots and Rams will meet Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
