Danny Amendola injury update

Danny Amendola made quite a first impression on the New England Patriots. Against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Amendola registered 10 critical catches while playing through a pulled groin to help the Pats rally to overcome the upstart Buffalo Bills, 23-21.

“I didn’t really expect anything to happen in the second half. I thought he was going to be out for the rest of the game,” Brady admitted.

Of Danny Amendola’s 10 catches, 9 went for first downs, and 7 were third-down conversions. He also chipped in 4 catches for 26 yards on the final game-winning drive.

“Amendola is one tough player,” third-year running back Shane Vereen marveled. “He took some shots, he was a little banged up, [but] he came through when we needed him to.”

But will he be able to play in a quick turnaround game vs the New York Jets on Thursday night? Amendola was listed as limited today in practice with the groin injury.

At this point, don’t bet against him not playing.
