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. 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.
But he was unable to be ready for a quick turnaround game vs the New York Jets tonight, and will miss his first game as a Patriot.
And according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he could be out for a month or longer:

Amendola has been managing a groin injury since the Patriots’ Aug. 16 preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s been plagued by various injuries throughout his career, and hopefully his latest setback won’t linger and he’ll show that he can be a No. 1 option on an elite offense like the Patriots feature.
