The New England Patriots announced that cornerback Logan Ryan and linebacker Dont'a Hightower were limited in practice on Wednesday due to shoulder injuries.

Both players were listed as limited participants on the Patriots' practice report, along with Dominique Easley. Their availability for Sunday's game has yet to be determined as the severity of their injuries have not been revealed.

Hightower recorded 12 tackles and a half sack on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills and finally seems to be healthy after missing four games last season.

Ryan pulled down his first interception of the season against the Bills, as it proved to be the game-clincher, ending Buffalo's comeback bid.
