New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola has full adductor tear



The New England Patriots got Danny Amendola back last Sunday after losing him to injury in Week 1 with what was reported as a groin injury, but it now appears the oft-injured receiver has a more-serious adductor injury:


Amendola was supposed to replace the production of departed receiver Wes Welker, and in Week 1, Amendola was impressive, catching 10 passes for 104 yards. Some of that came after he suffered the groin injury that has kept him out since.

If he in fact is dealing with a desperate injury to the degree of a torn adductor muscle, don’t expect to see him produce at a high-rate at any point this season.

The Patriots are only 22nd in scoring offense this year, but they have given up the second-fewest points in the league. The offense will however need to step-up today facing one of the best offenses sin the the NFL in the New Orleans Saints.
