With the Patriots offense struggling and with Tom Brady unable to trust any receiver not named Julian Edelman last Sunday, there's a report from the Boston Herald that injured receiver Danny Amendola will not seek a surgery for the sports hernia that kept him out last week.

According to the paper, Amendola's return to game action would be in a couple of weeks as he recovers from torn adductors in his hips.

Surgery on his sports hernia reportedly could have kept him out an additional 3-4 weeks.

Without Amendola, Brady completed 13 passes last week to Edelman, while rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins struggled to keep from flat-out dropping passes.

In Week 1, Amendola recorded 10 catches for 104 yards.
