Amendola was on the field for 55 of the Patriots' 83 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Broncos in the AFC title game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Amendola, who caught five of eight targets for 39 yards in the game, finished up the regular season with 65 catches for 648 yards and three TDs in 14 games. The 30-year-old wideout -- who saw added work in the Patriots' offense this past season thanks to Julian Edelman's injury woes -- is under contract with the team for the next two seasons, but given that his base salary goes up to $5 million in 2016, Amendola's status with the team bears watching this offseason.
Amendola (knee) is listed as active Sunday's AFC title game against the Broncos. The same applies to fellow wideouts Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell, along with tight end Rob Gronkowski, thus ensuring that the Patriots' key pass-catchers are all available for Sunday's contest.
Amendola (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC title game against the Broncos, WEEI.com reports. As are fellow wideout Julian Edelman and tight end Rob Gronkowski, but all three of the Patriots' three key pass-catchers are still expected to play through their aches and pains this weekend.
Amendola (knee) secured two of three targets for 18 yards in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round victory over the Chiefs. He also amassed 22 yards on his sole punt return The seven-year pro was one of three Patriots pass-catchers recovering from injuries, and while he tallied the least-impressive outing of the three, appeared to emerge from the game no worse for wear. Although he took a clear back seat to Julian Edelman Rob Gronkowski in the passing game, Amendola looked elusive and healthy on his 22-yard punt return. The 30-year-old should be ready to roll for next week's AFC Championship Game.
Amendola (knee) is listed as active Saturday against the Chiefs. Amendola has been tending to a knee issue for nearly two months, but the Patriots' bye week certainly aided in improving his health. With Rob Gronkowski (knee/back) active and Julian Edelman (foot) back in the fold for the first time since Nov. 15, Amendola could be the third banana, at best, among Tom Brady's options in the postseason opener.
